Is it bye-bye Paul Schofield? Rumor has it that the three mouse cartoons, are at it again. They feel they have the votes to fire our village manager, but do they have a reason? The last time they tried, they did not articulate one.
One would think that the three council members would have better things to do. Maybe spend some time getting their taxes in order; maybe reread the states ethics violations on accepting a gift from a local businesswoman; or finally state reasons for wanting to fire our manager.
The last time they tried this ploy, they sat in disbelief as the audience expressed their strong feelings for Paul Schofield. Who is really running this show? The council or the staff? Who has spent years getting degrees, working their craft, honing skills and perfecting their trade?
It certainly is not the council, which comes here for a few years, basically with no knowledge of what it takes to run a village. We depend on the staff and management to lead and run the day-to-day business. Without people like Paul and his staff, Wellington would not be what it is today, a village that has won numerous awards and a community we are proud to call our home.
This council or others like it did not build this village; Paul Schofield and his staff did that. Remember that when you try to take his job!
