On FACEBOOK MAY 9th – Bold Mine
Say it ain’t so, Bernie? City Manager Bernie Lynch told the Cambridge Chronicle today that he would be interested in the $300+ manager’s job in that city when Bob Healy retires this year. There is still so much to cover, uncover and write about and so little time. All the unanswered FOIA requests and documents still to retrieve. Bernie, wait for the appeals to come in, please?
Here’s one request you can cross off your list Mr. C – The Sun lost one of their many FOI request, this one asking for the release of resumes for applicants for the Treasurer’s position. The States Office of Public Records informed me the ruling had been made and issued July 11th and the City Manager’s office was kind enough to respond to my email asking for a copy of the ruling.
In October 2011 the SUN ran an Editorial stating that the public had a right to know even after the City Solicitor pointed out that people have a right to privacy when applying and stated they would challenge the ruling..they did and they lost.
I’ve always felt that a person has a right to apply for a job with the city without having to have their resumes splattered all over the SUN or a BLOG and that only finalist or people hired should have their resumes released.
I will say that of the many departments I deal with on occasion, the States Public records division is one of the best in responding to any emails. Once a ruling is made and I have asked about it, they send me a note to let me know.
I must have missed this announcement in the SUN and didn’t see it on Facebook either but then again like Erik Gitschier, Campy has defriended me on Facebook…LMAO
