Letter to the Editor submitted by:
We are grateful to our City Council for hiring Sean Joyce as Interim City Manager. Our fervent hope is that this appointment will mark the beginning of the end of the dissension, blame and accusations that have characterized the atmosphere of South Pasadena in recent months. This past year has been a terrible time in our country and in our city.
It is time to heal the open wounds, hurt and mistrust that have caused so much trauma to our community. This, of course, means getting to the bottom of questions around the financial issues and other administrative matters under review but hopefully matters will proceed with more civility and less drama.
There is always a place for inquiry, questions and disagreement. It is our responsibility as good citizens and good neighbors to demand transparency and accountability but not in a way that demeans others and sows the seeds of mistrust and blame. The times are hard enough, so let us as citizens stop the blame, let go of anger, forgive one another and get on with the work at hand.
There is lots to do.
Sean gave our city eight years of stability and strong leadership. We look forward to a continuation of his guidance and to a healing of all that has preceded this difficult chapter of South Pasadena’s history.
