Blaisdell serves ” at the pleasure of the City Council”……..my evaluation of this whole sordid situation is – Blaisdell should resign, just ahead of City Council firing him.
I do not say this lightly.
I have spoken with many well-informed citizens on the shelter issues . The buck stops with Blaisdell, his assistant, (and I understand Steve Bates has been reassigned (?).
We have a city council tangled up with ” paralysis by analysis” – all these months and we cannot correct these issues ? We have numerous “volunteers” who have been scolded, treated poorly, and suffered numerous indignities.
No spirit of cooperation, of positive improvements, or of cooperation.
A clear message needs to be sent by the Mayor and City Council – Blaisdell and his assistant should be removed immediately. The situation should NEVER have deteriorated to what we find today.
