The Deerfield Beach Commissioners fired City Manager Mike Mahaney tonight. Breaking a 2 – 2 tie, Marty Popelsky cast the deciding vote to dismiss him.
Who was right?
Mike was right that Peggy was too interfering, Joe Miller was right when he said everyone should be able to get along and put aside differences for the sake of the city, Bill was right when he said that he tried and tried to get Mahaney to communicate better and stop his gossiping but couldn’t, Marty was right when he said that Peggy wouldn’t be able to deal with Mike if he stayed on for a trial period. Were they right to fire Mike, only time will tell. It was probably right for Mike; he can start over somewhere else. Was it right for the city? Only time will tell.
