Why is everyone patting this guy on the back?
While I respect his decision for going back to the military, he was looking for a new job after the May primary anyhow.
So why did he decide to QUIT with 99 day left in his administration?
In most "run of the mill" jobs, people will have the courtesy to give their employer at least two weeks notice.
The Mayor, in an elected position, gave less than a months notice.
I gave him the benefit of the doubt at first.
Maybe the military couldn't or wouldn't wait until January to take him.
But that's not the case. They would of worked with him, but he chose to "bail out" early.
It's pretty easy to see that he did not take this trusted office seriously.
And everyone's now rushing to clean up the mess he left behind.

Good riddens to Target. They were making a fortune in C'ville for years but when they finally had some competition they turned their back on us. They were greedy. I'll never set foot in another Target again.

yeah,we've gone from bad to worse but i will give Zumer a high mark in regards to the Stacee Osborne scandal at the Park Dept. he researched all the info and determined that Cheryl Keim was not at fault in any shape or form. the state board of accounts didn't even find it for a few years. cheryl was the best thing besides fawn johnson that came out of that park dept. our new idiot mayor made a huge mistake when he terminated CK and hired that new director who is a poor specimen for even a human being. kudos to you Zumer for doing your homework on the Park Dept. if only charlie coons had done the same thing. he's a phony too. the problems with the park dept will haunt him until he's out of office. that can't come soon enough for a lot of residents of this community.
