Hire Hanks permanently

Adam Hanks started working for the city of Ashland at the age of 19. He was the Code Enforcement officer for several years and knows every square inch of town.

He’s smart and gets along well with others. He’s excelled as interim city manager in one of the most challenging periods in the city’s history.

Why spend thousands of dollars searching for an outsider that doesn’t even know where Siskiyou Boulevard is? Many city managers tend to be mercenaries that are constantly climbing the ladder looking for the next shiny, more lucrative opportunity elsewhere. They tend to stay for a couple of years before bailing.

Why recruit someone from Baton Rouge or Bangor when you have a home-grown boy right here that is already doing an excellent job?

Question for Jensen

One question to Stephen Jensen’s response to David Runkel’s letter- what is a COVID stay-at home mom leave? I would hope our city would be following OSHA guidelines and offer a COVID stay -at home parental leave.
