I recently had the opportunity to review a one minute and 30 sec. clip from the October 18th special council meeting of the Marco Island city council. The council members were to review the finalist resumes for a city manager.
Two members, councilmen Brown and Batte did not participate. One stating he did not have time to review the resume the other, although not clear on the tape, abstained. Although I’m sure they’re qualified, it’s disappointing for any political office holder not to take a stance and let their voice be heard or to vote no (if they did) on something they haven’t reviewed. Hopefully they both will participate in the November 2nd selection of a city manager for Marco Island.
