I disagree with the argument that the Council should ratify Ron Savoy and it has nothing to do with Mr. Savoy. It has everything to do with the process. A candidate search of the region should be instituted. We should judge qualifications, experience and ability. We should interview the best candidates. We should make a decision based on this information and do this for every department head.
I was thoroughly impressed by Mr. Savoy’s presentation. It was comprehensive, detailed and reasoned. I say that he be given the opportunity to compete against other candidates for this job and, if he rises above the rest, as I think he would, then we ratify him.
