I am not impressed with our local newspaper that they would provide Mayor Harding a “bye” on this vacancy at City Hall for over 2 months in not covering this story. With so many issues in this town requiring a hands-on, experienced administrator that this position has not been posted in almost 5 months is questionable, at best.
