No need to tell the truth

Elrichboy over at wrote an illuminating post about changes in our city manager’s employment contract.

You can read it here.

He points out that the city manager’s original employment agreement (May 20, 2014) listed 14 reasons why the city manager could be fired for cause.  City council can fire the city manager at any time but without good cause the city would have to pay the manager an extra year of pay.

When the contract was renewed on December 11, 2018 the list of specific causes shrank to seven.

Read elrichboy’s post to see all seven of them.

One that got my attention was:

Conscious misrepresentation of material facts to the Council or other City Officials in the conduct of the City’s business.

That explains a lot.

We deserve better

    Interesting that they are trying to hold Sam Morgan to a standard that they have eliminated from the City Manager’s contract. I’m not defending Morgan, just wondering why the inconsistency is there.

    I think I’ll ask my rep to explain this change. Should be entertaining. Don’t bother to ask Tommy…he has a boilerplate reply to all emails, saying that he is too busy to answer but have a great day.

    This is a shining example of the lack of integrity and the culture of corruption and dishonesty that permeate El Paso city government. The mayor and council know full well that Tommy G misrepresents facts at city council meetings because they work together to mislead taxpayers, especially on things like the Great Wolf Lodge deal and the related property deals. Tommy G is smart enough to insist that the clause be deleted, so that if he ever gets crossways with the council, they cannot use those lies against him in his termination. He know he is lying. They know he is lying. They are just protecting one another. But there is no honor among thieves, so he is covering his bases by getting his contract changed.

    Does Dee Margo have a contract saying he can lie to the taxpayers without getting fired? This is stealing. Why aren’t these guys in jail?


  5. Logic says:

    An honest person would not ask for that clause to be removed from their contract. Honest people would never approve of it being removed.
