I predicted Anita Archer would be named City Manager when the finalists were announced. It's a no-brainer. Dan Gambil and Allen Robinson are in the pockets of the local kingmakers and I knew they would support one of the "old guard-Guy Hylton" types. Archer was the only finalist who fit that pattern.

That is crazy. Anita is the best choice for several reasons. One, she is not afraid to stand up to the commissioners when she is right. If you look at the other applicants, all of them were job hoppers and at least on seemed to be not to be too great from the standpoint she was $800,000 or so over budget on a project. That can put a town in a bad position in a hurry.

Anita is part of Elk City. They lived here for years, are a part of this town. The best thing the city commission can do is to come up with a decent financial package for her to make sure we get her and keep her for a long time to come. She has the financial savy to run the place. She has the heart to run the place. She has the intelligence to run this town.

Go Anita. You rock.

Superstar. You are correct in parroting the "good-old-boy" line about Anita. That does not change the fact that she is part of the old guard and what I predicted was true.

Superstar obviously you are very misinformed. The money that was spent to hire and outside agency to find a qualified candidate could have been spent on other needed things if they were going to hire from within anyway! Did you also forget she forfeited her position as interim city manager because she could not handle the stress, and now she has been APPOINTED?! seems fishy to me! There are things in this city that need to be kept quiet and what better way than to hire someone that you know will keep quiet. On top of all that where does she get off thinking she is such an amazing employee that she already disagrees with the salary! Greed is the root of all evil and I guarantee you this is just the beginning. When the state audit starts things will come out and people will know the truth!!!

Not sure about the good ole boy thing but, didn't she resign as the temporary manager because she couldn't stand up to the city commissioners.

Hey, I notice where Dan Gambil has already picked Purcy Walker for City Treasurer. Gambil is everywhere. He leads the move to fire the former city manager, backs a Guy Hylton buddy for new city manager and now has Walker hired before there is even a vacancy in the position. Gambil is a big fish in a little pond and has reached the pinnacle of his achievements. If you want to "be somebody" in Elk City, just bow to the wishes of the folks who really run the town and you will be "Mr. Big" just like Dan and Allen.

Well, you all have your opinion and I have mine. Anita would still have been my pick of the bunch and I agree with the fact that hiring a headhunter agency was a waste of money. And you all can kick Hylton all you want, but look at Sayre and the progress they are now making with him at the helm.

The same thing could have been said for Hitler. He was an evil person who took power in the Weimar Republic, became dictator and put the German economy right during the Great Depression. Morals and decency should count for something---in Sayre or Germany.

Anita Archer is an overbearing person who screwed elk city car show out of having drag races for no reason when they already had the flyers printed and insurance paid!

This audit is the best shot we have of getting things cleaned up at least a little and I hope they handcuff a few people. Also Guy Hitler got by with way too much and we need to make sure that never happens again...

She gave up the temp job because they wanted her to do her full time job and that with no extra money. I would have quit too! She was the right choice for the job! Someone from Elk City for Elk City! And the stupid idiots waste our money to hire someone. To hire someone to do their job. I don't want anyone that doesn't have anything invested here making decisions for this town! She was the best choice. She was right under their nose all along. What a waste of a lot of money!

Maybe they're looking for someone to take the fall and there's no telling what the audit will uncover. This bunch of crooks has been pushing their luck for a long time and it's time to clean this mafia up.

bull crap. She couldn't handle it cause 3 comissoners were not on her side and they were asking to many questionthey hired anita cause she can cover up what she helped to corrupt this city out of when her boss hylton was here. She is another hylton and she has 9omissoners to support her evewry move. The city of elk city government is corrupt

I am having trouble deciding which posts are either Lane Henry's, Dora Martindale, or PSO backers. I thought we were done with those idiots and the town could continue to progress. there is always a burr up their bums! Get a job, get a life, and move on!
