Council eyes Quinn as interim Fairfield city manager

By From page A4 | March 15, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Sean Quinn, who retires April 3 as city manager, would serve in an interim role in that post for up 180 days at $95 an hour under a proposal the Fairfield City Council takes up Tuesday.

Fairfield is recruiting a new city executive but leadership is needed as projects await, including preparation of the 2014-15 budget, according to a city staff report. The resolution before the council refers to the “specialized skills possessed” by Quinn.

Council members meet at 6 p.m. in the chambers at the Civic Center, 1000 Webster St.

    Here we go, Double dipping! Just make David White the city manager already. He's the anointed one, Mraz said so.

    What the heck do we need a mayor and city councilmembers for as we have a City Manager. The mayor and city council are supposed to manage the city... but they don't. The mayor and city council are supposed to represent the people... but they don't. The City Manager doesn't represent the people, but he does manage the city. Let's save some money and fire the mayor and city council.

    The mayor and city council aren't supposed to manage the city; they are supposed to govern the city. There's a significant difference.
