Douglas Johnson in San Gabriel Valley Tribune

From an article in today’s San Gabriel Valley Tribune by Molly R. Okeon:

A city manager’s job can be unstable, at best, due to ever-changing city council majorities, politics, and the fact that top municipal executives are often seen as “somewhat of a professional punching bag” – scapegoats for a city’s woes, according to Doug Johnson, a fellow at Claremont McKenna College’s of State and Local Government.

But Baxter says he likes the challenge, both of being a city manager and of taking charge of “tough towns.”
