I read that in the paper, is this guy retarded? Much better employees are getting fired but he calls LULAC?

Surely that was a misquote, that guy should have been the first to go rather than the last in a line of what are we up to like 20. I wonder if they are all going to play the race card also. Pathetic.

I was supportive of him when he was angry about losing his job. It was unfair the way it was handled, but he was treated just as badly as everyone else. I remember LULAC from the times of Sammy Gomez, it tore this town apart. There is no reason to insert race into the situation, the way he was treated had nothing to do with the color of his skin.

so if it says in the paper that the female cop is gonna do code enforcement but "would not handle issuance of health or electrical permits", and that "Health and elecrical permits would be sub-contracted out, according to Kampfer, saving the city as much as $25,000 a year." WHY IS SHE DOING A HEALTH INSPECTION AT THE DAYCARE TODAY? More lies from mr. kampfer? as far as i know she is not certified to do health inspections, hence the statement about the inspections being sub-contracted out! QUIT LYING ALREADY, i hope the city (or better yet, mr. kampfer) gets fined for having her do inspections that she is not qualified to perform!

I don't understand subcontracting anything out even if it is a little more expensive to hire locally the money paid is more likely to be spent locally. The election can't come soon enough. I hope all you townies get out and vote.

Why??? Why does everyone hate change so much in this town? You want the old city council and their complacent ways back in? Like they did such a great job. Just be careful what you wish for is something my mother used to tell me.

I don't think anyone is against change as long as the change is for the better. Sure, some good things are going on. But it seems to be at the expense of the actual people who live in this town. And when you start losing the people, the town won't be far behind.

I'm seeing way too much out sourcing,now PK wants to out source our water & waste water."We" the citizens would not own our water, "WE" the city can sell it's own water. I'm of the opinion that we need to out source city mananger position, we could save thousands.

Couldn't believe he was hired for any public position, due to past record.

im not against change! what im against is penalizing everyone in this town just because we live HERE and our dumba** city council hired some steaming piece of s*** to run this town! we're not stupid! i think we all know what it takes to save money, but sometimes you just can't cut corners EVERYWHERE! do you hire someone to repair the roof on your house based solely on the fact that they're the CHEAPEST? NO, because there's always a catch (like shoddy f***** work), and if you're paying for it you want the job done RIGHT. Guess what? WE'RE ALL PAYING FOR THIS, is it so wrong that we want the job done RIGHT. you don't wanna pay your employees what theyre worth, but you expect them to do twice the job? THAT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN. you expect them to pay more for all basic services, but you wanna cut their pay and hours and jobs? you wanna take money away from their children's education? this isn't change, it's TYRANNY

City Fire Marshall did these positions for years,for one salary,when he retired,city pd this code enforcment officer money to drive around
and get on people's nerves, due to this pass code officer there is lawsuit or probably will be against city and him.City pd dearly for Catoe's stupidy, w/former financial officer, and let's don't forget these million dollar water meters,all done by former mayor and city council,including giving motel 50000.In my opinion code officer was overpaid.

absolutely agree-- it takes about five minutes on internet to research his pathetic past and the hell he leaves in any council or committee that he has served on. easy research. easy

it is unimaginable that the city council would hire someone from a few hundred miles away without seriously checking his past. anyone who has ever hired a person for a job KNOWS you don't JUST check with the references he has listed because no one is likely to list as a reference a person or persons who would NOT give him a favorable reference--- so, then, a couple of people need to spend the MONEY and TIME to go to the past employment and visit will all sorts of people who knows how he works.

He brags about so many past achievements and so many past places of employment (a Main Street Director in NM-- which is NOT TRUE! FBI-- REALLY? with his ethics- not likely) yet when a group of CCITY citizens spent time researching his past, these did not show up. ODD? A phone call to the city leaders in NM will let you see that he lied when he stated he was a Main Street Director (oh,yes, there was a MS program in the town in which he worked)

so the question remains-- how does a city council HIRE a person to work for all of us, THEN become too afraid of his intimidation to really oversee his antics. how can they not say to him "enough already!" how can the council refuse to LISTEN to a significant number of citizens when they campaigned on the platform that
THEY would listen and serve us all?

One day you all are going to write more opinions about this administration , and kick them around,.....the past administration did the best they could with what they had to work with, and remember the current Mayor was part of the past administration. One thing you could get of the past was the truth !!!

That's debatable too.
