Political Arrogance

Today's editorial in the Key West Citizen: Wrong time to consider contract extension, raise.

On the heels of Monroe County Administrator Tom Willi demanding to be paid double time for doing his job during hurricane Dennis, comes this even more egregious instance of the Key West City administrator, i.e., City Manager Julio Avael, attempting to insulate himself from a possible (probable?) swing in the makeup of the City Commission, by grabbing for a three year contract extension filled with a variety of goodies, 15 months before his current contract expires. The utter gall of the man!

Commissioners are scrambling to distance themselves from Avael and his claim that three of them, including one who is a candidate for re-election, urged him to seek the extension.

Perhaps the handwriting is on the wall.
