Councilmembers should know how to act like adults without consultant's help
I recently learned of a council decision to "hire consultant Jim Reid to work on improving staff/council/mayor relations."
Are you kidding me? Do we hire consultants to work on improving relations between first and second graders? No. We encourage them to get along with each other by reconciling their differences, building relationships/friendships and just plain get along with each other.
The grownups that occupy the seats in Edmonds City Council, Edmonds mayoral office & city of Edmonds staff have had many years to learn the lessons that should have occurred in grade school. They can certainly agree with each other when it comes to spending our hard-earned money in the form of taxes/fees.
I encourage all citizens to demand that those responsible for this action shell out their own money to hire consultant Jim Reid. This just doesn't make sense to me. Let's get this decision reversed before the money is spent and it's too late.
