7.Council is a joke. They spend thousands on a search firm (because you know council cant make a decision without at least one consultant) and then hire the brother-in-law, who already knew about the job? Why does a 57 year old partner in a law firm leave for a public sector job? If hes not already making more money than this, hes probably not a very successful attorney. He has maybe ten years before retirement. Id be curious to know what kind of retirement package was negotiated. And he starts out at $10k more than the previous person at retirement age? And how do you feel if you are the (already in Roanoke, been doing the job for a year)interim attorney? Pretty shabby, Im sure.

Even after all of the ridiculous decisions theyve made in the past, I am still surprised by this one. It was a no brainer no-go. Sheesh.
