Interim City Manager

Delton, MI

#1 Jun 18, 2012
I am a resident of Mount Juliet and try to stay current on my city's politics. Today I learned something about our Interim City Manager that I find very disturbing, if true. Today, I was told that Kenny Martin has no degrees of any kind from any college anywhere. If this is true, I find it hard to understand how he could even possibly be considered for city manager. I would think Business Administration or Economics or hopefully a little of both would be a requirement for such an important position. I do understand he is well respected and liked and he seemed to do an excellent job at his former position of Economic Developement. I understand he is very good at smoozing people to bring business to Mt Juliet. I'm sorry, but I don't care how good of a personality he has, he is not qualified to be a city manager anywhere much less one that has the per capita that Mt. Juliet can boast. He isn't qualified to lead that many people in city government. What can our commissioners be thinking? Has Mt Juliet returned to to the good ole boy mentality? Everyone within the city government believes it's a foregone conclusion that he is a "shoe in" for that position. I have a business administration degree and am more qualified than he is.

Im sorry but you are saying if the man doesn't have a degree he's not fit for the position? It's thinking like that that ruins a town! Probably why you moved here right? Lucky us! Experience outweighs a college degree 10 to none! I would much rather have someone who knows what they are doing than some arrogant jerk that thinks they do! That's what's wrong with places! First the ass randy Robertson comes in, he wrecked everything, but it's okay he has a college degree! What a load of crap! Mt Juliet is a good ole boy town and anyone that doesn't like that mentality should leave! I'm sure no one begged them to come, and truth be told the ones of us that spent our lives here don't want you!

Just because you have a degree does not mean you would be better at the job. I know people with degrees that I would not hire. I think Kenny Martin would do a good job. He is an honest man that does his best at everything.
