Within two weeks on the job, City Manager Brenda Fischer has “suspended indefinitely” Assistant City Manager Horatio Skeete on “open-ended” leave.
Exactly what does that mean?
Is it to keep him from the mayor (who states “he heard rumors that something was going to happen”), the city council, the public, and even newspaper reporters from spilling the beans on all of the city’s “creative” budget shenanigans?
Especially, with the $50 million going to the NHL and now $15 million a year to IceArizona? Who is directing the shifting of funds around in this financial shell game? It certainly is not Mr. Skeete, because he gets directions from our city council.
What happened to the “open” request for proposal bidders to manage the Jobing.com Arena for a budgeted $6 million?
A much deeper investigation is needed on our current mayor, city council members, and the last administration that got Glendale into this financial quagmire in the first place.
