Ventura City Manager Rick Cole posted that he is resigning. I enjoyed his blog and like that he allowed us to understand city hall better. His latest blog entry continues that tradition:
Mayor Mike Tracy and I agree on many things, but two stand out in this situation. First, what's good for Ventura comes first. Second, better to tell the truth, even if it is uncomfortable. I'm not leaving to spend more time with my family -- although I'm looking forward to that. I'm not leaving to "pursue other opportunities," although I'm excited about that too. I'm resigning because after eight and half years, the majority of the Council believe it is time for a change in leadership.
Thanks for helping us to better understand local government. Good luck in your future pursuits.
