Online Poll: Should finalists for city manager be named publicly?
Rockland — This week we are asking:
"Should the names of the top candidates for the city manager position be made public?"
Some argue publicizing the names of the finalists would allow the press and public to research the candidates' past performance in other communities where they have worked. Others argue it would discourage good applicants who do not want to risk damaging their relationship with their present employers. Where do you stand?
See attached chart for results from last week where most favored wind turbines off Monhegan.
