The job announcement for Animal Services GM position just came out.
It is not on the City's Personnel website. It is not on Animal Services website.
I got it from ADLLA!!! It is dated January 2o, 2010.
Take a look at it. The search can close on February 19, 2010, just three weeks off and it is not even on City's Personnel or Animal Services website?
What is the rush? It has been nine months since Boks resigned, and maybe three or four months trying to figure out the job description, and closing can be only three weeks away?
SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG HERE.
Also, the job description is so vague and generalistic that anyone with significant shelter experience would qualify, but it would exclude, for example, a three star general of the army that has led an army group of five divisions, and 100,000 men, and who might love animals and no kill.
I also understand the public will never find out who the candidates are or have any input. When the search was on for the police chief, I remember five or six internal candidates were mentioned in the LA Times. Not even this.
This is not right. Again, the LA animal community is not having any input.
