The protest message was visible last night as the Geneva City Manager Search Committee met behind closed doors at Geneva City Hall.
Earlier in the day supporters of interim City Manager Sage Gerling wrote messages with chalk on the sidewalk in front of city hall. Some of the messages read: “Listen to the People”, “The City Manager Search is Not What It’s Chalked Up To Be!”, and “End Corruption”.
Some search committee members stopped to take pictures of the chalk protest.
The news blog “Geneva Believer” reported this week that Sage Gerling and Richard “Rick” Finn, most recently the city manager of Bay City, Michigan are the final candidates for the Geneva City Manager’s job. The blog reports Finn has left 4-city manager jobs under a clouds of controversy, with accusations of harassment, discrimination, misconduct and racism.
