Urgent: Petition to NB City Council to hire a QUALIFIED City Manager
The Newport Beach City Council is preparing to hire our next city manager to replace Dave Kiff. Out of 72 applicants, there are 3 finalists, one of whom has NO administrative experience whatsoever. Shawn Nelson is currently an OC Supervisor and a political ally of the Gang of 4 (Peotter, Duffield, O'Neill, Muldoon). Mr. Nelson is a lawyer and a politician, but not a city manager. Rumor has it that he is the first choice of the Gang of 4. The final interviews will occur this Monday, July 30, with a hiring decision made soon thereafter. If you have time to come to the city hall at 9 AM Monday to speak during public comments before the council goes into closed session, please do this as well.

Mr. Nelson has a small pension from his political positions, a pension that will be considerably increased if he is given the city manager position. The Gang of 4 will have done a big favor to a man well connected in political circles, but residents will be left with a city manager who has zero experience in running a city.

Please open the form and give your feedback and your comments will get passed on to decision makers. Please forward this petition widely. The more feedback the Gang of 4 gets, the less likely it is that we will have Mr. Nelson as our next city manager. This is urgent!

Thank you for caring. Susan Skinner
