Learning from the MUC crisis
As a concerned citizen attending (the Feb. 27) Municipal Utilities Commission meeting, I was sorry to learn how a less than open, perhaps arrogant-tending style of management (with "lapses" in communication to staff and commissioners) by the general manager, over time, deteriorated...
