Bob Tucker to Retire

Just a few months after Gary O’Connell departed as Charlottesville city manager, Bob Tucker has announced he’s stepping down as the county executive, NBC-29 reports. In the equivalent role to O’Connell’s, Tucker has run the county for twenty years. His retirement is effective December 31. Expect a search firm to be hired and a national search to be conducted. Presumably this puts the county in the awkward position of competing with the city for the same talent.

    Isn’t it nice that they are looking out for us poor citizens, saving us ALL sorts of money by not doing a real search for someone who might have a better approach to county government, and just hiring an insider?

    And it’s even better that they didn’t even make a pretense of getting public input.
