"COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN" led zeppelin
I'm starting to realize a lot of the problems we face here in Painesville just might be simple "communication breakdowns". A perfect example happened this week when a News-Herald article about Painesville being sued by a resident that had been "tazered" by a police officer. After reading the article where was the response from city administration. The reporter had tried to contact the city manager slash law director who was out on vacation. Now did she try to contact anyone else or was she even told to talk to the assistant city manager? Painesville had plenty of notice to prepare a press release about this incident, did they?
Was anyone in the administration been given authority to talk to the press while the city manager was on vacation? What about the police officer why was he left blowing in the wind. Many people believe silence is an admission of guilt to some degree. This officer needs the support of the administration behind him at this time. This is not the time to let people come to conclusions on their own.
Many of you have theories about what happened this will be settled in the courts. At this time the city should stand behind the Police Department and this officer.
Was there miscommunication between council and the administration concerning the AMP-OHIO mess? Was there miscommunication between the city and the hospital and could that have been a reason for the move?
Was there miscommunication between the administration and council in regards to Grand River Fire Department opting out of the Cobblestone agreement?
Are there lines of communication open concerning Millstone?
My best guess? This city is presently being run by an individual who only micro-manages the operation of this city if she doesn't want you to know you won't.
