As a resident and taxpayer in Evanston, I am wincing and sighing with every inexplicable turn of events in the City Manager search drama. But I can’t begin to fathom how demoralized our city employees must feel.
Dozens (hundreds?) of dedicated professionals are getting up every morning and heading to the office to run the city. With numerous positions unfilled, everyone has to pick up the slack.
I want the city staff to know that I support and appreciate them. Thank you for your service! I wish I knew what more I could do.
