I haven't ever known anyone at a new job. I've always been hired based on qualifications. Frankly, I wouldn't want a job that was based on anything else. Also, I've been a supervisor for many years, and only hire on qualifications.
I do not want a saint for a mayor. I stated in a previous post that Adam's relationship and the subsequent lying are things that I could get past. Because I know that with politicians you often get dishonesty, fake outrage at any questions about that dishonesty, and pretty questionable behavior in general.
I do want the money spent on city hall staffers to be spent on people who are able to do the jobs they were hired to do. And yes, I want the best people available to be hired. That's what responsible managers in businesses do, because results matter. It should matter in city hall, also. The hiring of Amy Ruiz is a huge issue to many people because there seems to be no legitimate reason to hire her. And then finding out about the young man who isn't even doing his job in a city bureau shows that the problem is even deeper than that.
I know that apologists of Adams don't care about any of this. I don't understand why there are people who think that he should get a pass for all of this.
I only posted because I'm hoping that this problem of taxpayer money being spent to hire unqualified people is something that gets looked into. You know that once these people are in their jobs, they'll probably be government workers for the rest of their careers. Will they ever be worth what we're paying for them?
Please stop the name-calling. There are a lot of progressive people, who are not hypocrits, who have good reason to distrust Adams.
