As you may have seen, a commenter claimed that the mayor have been angling to keep Wilson on for a little while longer. It's not often that I get truly conflicting stories from my sources on an issue.
Some people are telling me that the mayor is 100 percent in negotiations with Wilson to stay a little longer. Apparently he told the whole world what he planned on paying the new city manager and all the good candidates pulled out of the race. And since a weak candidate will hurt the mayor, he's going back to Joyce.
Other people are telling me that there is zero truth to this rumor and they haven't even heard this idea kicked around before. Wilson wants to leave and can't wait to. Apparently the grass is greener on the other side. And by "greener," I mean - mucho dolares for Wilson. Her next job is going to pay north of $300,000.
The candidates have been narrowed down to a certain number by now, so if there's any truth to the rumor that they are going to extend her contract - they need to inform people now.
The weird thing is that my conflicting sources all work in and around each other - some of them within spitting distance of each other. I don't know what to say.
Doesn't really matter, though. City Manager form of government is gone in May.
