Social media shows the Imperial city manager, Mayor Geoff Dale and the city manager's assistant on a trip in Washington, D.C. It has been noticed the city manager's assistant attends many trips such as this with him (at least two that I can see on social media), in addition to attending meetings in the Valley.
I have never seen another city manager anywhere take his assistant with him/her for several two- or three-day trips. If the City of Imperial is so broke, why is a secretary going on these trips? Is the city manager incapable of attending meetings and providing updates to the council by himself? What is this costing the tax payers?
