The 2-2-07 Union article was indefinite as to who exactly is dysfunctional. Clearly, the people in charge who have been there for the past six years are the mayor and his assistant, the city manager.
The buck really has to stop with these two.
They are the architects of Anoka's dysfunction. Everyone else on the council is just too new. Freeburg has been on longer, but the dysfunction dates back to this current mayor and his manager, not to previous councils.
What really affects the health of a city, it's bond rating and reputation are governance and management. One of these alone going south is surmountable, but both?
It's kindof amusing to see the dysfunctional Mayor/Manager team dodging and bobbing so the buck of dysfunction isn't laid squarely at their feet.
The only thing left to bet on is who will pull a double cross first?
