Say no to hiring another city administrator
Why do Councilmen Joel Aispuro and Jason Welker want to hire another city administrator? It should be clear from the last election that Sandpoint residents rejected this added position. After an unsuccessful experience with Jennifer Stapleton (paid six figures), hiring another non-elected official with as much control as Shelby Rognstad and the council gave her is not acceptable.
Newly-elected Mayor Jeremy Grimm needs to be given the opportunity to fulfill his campaign promise to restore department heads at city hall and reappoint locals to the advisory committees. After doing such, if collectively the council and the people see there’s a need for another administrator, then the mayor can present a candidate to the council to hire.
Please email or visit Sandpoint city councilors now. We do not like this unnecessary power rush against the will of the People.
