A city manager is expected to remain apolitical and carry out the work of the mayor and city council. Accordingly, a city manager is not elected. He or she applies like one would any other job, and is then hand-picked by the city councilmembers.
That’s why this story is so messed up.
The guy literally got canned for saying the right thing. But the right thing isn’t always right to liberals.
From Fox News:
Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey was fired on Monday evening, hours after he publicly disagreed with Mayor Mike Elliott’s assertion that the police officer who fatally shot a Black man in the Minneapolis suburb should be immediately fired in response to the incident.
Daunte Wright, 20, was fatally shot during a traffic stop. Bodycam footage showed three officers gathered near a stopped car that police said was pulled over for an expired registration. Police attempted to arrest the man, later identified as Wright, for an outstanding warrant. A struggle ensued, followed by the fatal shooting.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot and killed Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not their service weapon. Authorities have not released the name of the female officer involved in the shooting.
An investigation should immediately be opened into Mayor Elliot.
