Who are the idiots that put these incentives in?

Why did he accept the job in Florence Oregon for $120K Per year ony one week ago but now he is being as our city manager at $100K per year? Report Reply 1 reply · active 303 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down interesting · 303 weeks ago Too many unanswered questions. Don’t rush into this.

I just hope he is not taking this job in wellington for $20K less than the Florence Oregon job that he tentatively accepted only one week ago for the right reasons.
