With less than two weeks remaining on Santa Fe City Manager Brian Snyder’s contract, Mayor Javier Gonzales still hasn’t decided who he wants to take the top job at City Hall on a permanent basis.

The Mayor’s Office declined to disclose who Gonzales is considering for the appointment, which requires City Council approval, or how many candidates he has interviewed.

    I think Gonales should have been spending his time getting his new administration in place--not jetting off to LA to hobnob with stars and film producers. He had a transition team for the police chief that should have been checking backgrounds for months. He ignored that team and added a candidate who came to a public meet and greet and had 5 min of the mayor's time. It is also well past due to have an effective city manager and an unbiaed city attorney who does not think she is running the show (please pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain..I am the great and glorious OZ)!

    Oh please! So, the city council is in "the dark," "in the limbo phase," and "in the mum stage." Whenever the new mayor wants to get his administration up and ready, it is up to him, don't you think? So, why all in the hurry to get a new administration? I think the selection approach that he is taking in terms of weighing and measuring on who will lead this administration belongs to him. His timing and place of appointments for his new administration needs all the time and forethought. Patience is what the city council members should be thinking about and engrained as one of their positive attributes.
