Len Greaney, the most competent town manager we've had recently

Post by Phil Blampied on Thu Nov 13, 2008 9:49 pm

There has been conjecture, mostly ill-informed, about Len Greaney and what he is doing as town manager. From my perspective, he's doing the job much more competently than his two previous predecessors. To get an idea of the full scope of his job, here's his description, taken from the town website: http://www.rumfordmaine.net/downloads/rmgr108.pdf Yes, it's his accounting, but it's accurate.

From what I've seen, I think he's terrific. At some point, I will elaborate.

Is that based on job experience and qualifications or his people skills? It does seem like he is getting along well with everyone...

I think Len is doing okay too. He does seem to work well with others and probably has an impartiality that stems from being an interim and not having his personal livelihood depend on the job. A great service to the community. I'll bet he's looking forward to June, this can't be an easy job for anyone. It's a highly critiqued position and what people don't understand they tend to think is wrong.

C asks a good question. I think it's hard to find the competence level we need coupled with an ability to create understanding and buy-in for the Board and townspeople. I see Len as an interim bridge to a new way of doing business in Rumford.

I'd like to see a couple people from this forum apply for the position, although it's like setting yourself up in the stock, so maybe only masochists need apply.
