Tom Willi is a good human being and should be given a chance to lead some other city. I hope he gets that chance. People in the Keys have no clue what they need to succeed. The Keys are about as played out as Jimmy Buffett and are losing money as a result. They need a new crew in charge down there with some fresh ideas. I wish them well also.

They had to. Part of his contract was that if he were to be fired he would receive one years pay plus other benefits.
Not a bad deal huh? If I get fired I get nada.
Why do these cities offer this to applicants? Why don't they just post an open position without the added one years severance pay?

Best thing that could have ever happened to Tom. They didn't deserve him here in the Keys. Tom is a true professional, way above the average keys idiot.

Oh really. How many chances should he get? He's failed twice now. Once in Dania, and now in the Keys.

Good riddance to the A-hole!!!

It's simple...without a severence packge, they wouldn't get any qualified applicants! Can you even imagine reporting to a group of morons? Tom Willi will do just fine, he's smart, professional and totally competent, unlike most of his former bosses!

Because they are run by PART TIME people that are politicians with their own agenda's. The City/County Managers serve at the will of these bafoons, who's only purpose is to get re-elected and force their will upon the citizens.

For most it is an ego trip, for others it is a way to enrich their selves or friends.

A TRUE professional manager has the job security of a machine gunner in WWII... about three minutes. Sooner or later, some policy will be made or enforced that does not sit will with one or two of the PART TIMERS and it is down hill from there.

These professional managers have those benefit clauses in their contracts to protect them and their families from the whims of these part time want-a-be politicians. At least the part timers have some job security - the length of their term OR until they are indited.

Willi is a syncophantic idiot - a politician worshipper. He sucked up to Murray Nelson (then County Commissioner) to get hired and then to Mario Di Genarro (who has never stood for election) to retain his position. Check out any of the Keys newspaper articles or one of the many activist web sites to see the crap he pulled.

He flat lied to Jeb Bush about Keys evacuation times in order to convince Florida Department of Community Affairs to allow the Keys more development.

He met with DCA again in mid-November. Something he said in one of those meetings got back to a commissioner who supported him and she moved to get him out. Good move.

Willi is incompetent and dishonest. Good riddance to another crooked politician.

"Tom Dooley" Ringtone to your Cell
[Intro:]
Throughout history
There've been many pages written about the eternal triangle
This next one tells the story of a beautiful woman
And a condemned man named Tom Willi.
...
When the sun rises tomorrow, Tom Willi... must hang...
Hang down your head, Tom Willi
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Willi
Poor boy, you're bound to die!
I met her on the mountain
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife
Poor boy, you're bound to die
This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome key
Hangin' from a white oak ship.
Poor boy, you're bound to die
Poor boy you're bound to die
Poor boy, you're bound to die...
