Captain Kangaroo’s Court says, “Do this”. . .


What Bob Baldwin did by renewing employee’s contracts in the last few days as City Manager was wrong.  In fact it was reprehensible.  However, our Commission is not totally blameless here. Yes they did “discuss” their wishes not to extend or renew contracts, but like many issues in Lake Worth they took no definitive action.

This is not to say that Mr.  Baldwin did not act counter to the Commission’s wishes, or diminish his underhanded expression of “loyalty” to city staff members. But suing Mr. Baldwin is out of the question now and if a suit were pursued it would at best fail and at worse open a Pandora’s box of counter suits by the employee’s who were given contracts.

While it is a a hard lesson to learn, the Commission needs to come away from this with a resolve to turn their often seemingly endless discussions into tangible action when it comes to expressing their wishes.
