Steve Mickle’s first answer to all the questions to date on the Ask The Candidates page is to Question 12 about the selection of a new CAO:
My understanding from our current on/off CAO that it will be the new council that will have that choice. And rightfully so. The new council needs to be part of the process to assess the qualities that we need. Not the same old story of hand picking and qualifying some one who has no passion for this community.
