WMU to Hire John Rompf - AGAIN!

Why

Why is the WMU Commission hiring John Rompf for another term of bad legal advice? It was Rompf who sat by and said nothing while the WMU Commission did the illegal salary deal in the dark of night with the manager. It was his job to advise the Commission not to do such a thing. It was Rompf who advised them that retroactively approving the deal would make everything all right. Obviously, that didn't work. It was Rompf who attended so many of the secret and illegal lunch meetings of the Commission. He, of all people, should have known better and advised the Commission accordingly. Either Rompf is giving bad advice to the Commission or he is not doing his job at all. So I ask again, why is he being rehired at Thursday's Commission meeting? As a result of all these under the table dealings, the manager was forced out of his job and into an early retirement and all of the Commission members serving at the time of the illegal salary deal have resigned. All of this with the apparent blessing of the Mayor and City Commission. Why is everyone so eager to rehire the guy who gave all the bad legal advice in the first place? Something is still rotten at WMU. Does anyone else have a problem with this??

You are correct. The first test for the new WMU board is to see if they retain the same legal counsel that condoned the past actions. If so, look for more of the same.

Ladies and Gentlemen
We have sat on our hands and done nothing but punch keys to the rumor network while a local legal firm got a contract for $1,500 per month plus $130.00 per hour for extra services by the new WMU commission.
Millions of dollars in fines and hefty raises for the former WMU GM is all we have to see from this arrangement.
Get real and don't expect miracles. Winchester is Winchester abd always will be unless you do something.

WMU was involved in many alleged misdeeds. Heads rolled. The new heads and some holdovers seem to be going down the same road. Meantime no one even seems to be alarmed. Deja vue or a bad dream?

Yes, same ole same ole at WMU. Wonder how long it will take Rompf to guide the new bunch down the wrong path. It appears that Rompf is in charge. His retainer is to provide legal advice and keep the Commission out of trouble. Instead we see him giving presentation after presentation to the Commission about issues that you would expect to hear from management or staff. The Winchester Sun provided a good satire last Friday. Rompf, the author of the free illegal free lunch at WMU, was pictured chowing down on a free lunch paid for by the chamber of commerce. The boy does know how to find a free lunch!
