Morro Bay Mayor Jamie Irons is making a grievous error in his attempt to oust the city manager and city attorney. Whatever his beef, clearly this effort is a case of “throwing out the baby with the bath water.”
I support longtime Morro Bay employees Andrea Lueker and Rob Schultz in their positions running the city. Collectively, these two have nearly 50 times more experience than the mayor. He may have a new direction in mind, but the city simply cannot function efficiently without these two committed and effective leaders at this time.
Sadly, I see no clean way forward. The citywide ripple of his vote of “no confidence” already makes all who work for, or do business with the city, uneasy. This is no way to run an enterprise.
