Our new City Manager. Photo from Fox Midlands ConnectLets face it. It got ugly at Columbia City Council on Tuesday.

The dissention over the appointment of Mayor Benjamin's ally Teresa Wilson spilled into the adoption of the salary. Mayor Benjamin felt the need to respond to a State Paper's article that the posting was changed to fit Ms. Wilson's resume. I know Councilman Plaugh felt blindsided by it and responded. This is what happens when you have to judge the future of people you are very close too.

This is all behind us now.

Rather than focus on the past appointment lets focus on the future. For the city manager to succeed they need guidance on just what council wants and finds most important.

I recommend that council give her measurable goals to all areas of city development. For example

Teresa Wilson is qualified and more importantly she is the future of the city. Lets give her some goals and hope she continues in the tradition of Steve Gantt's as a great city manager.
