HatCityBLOG FLASHBACK: Abolish the position of City Clerk
Time: 11:41 AM
As demonstrated in previous posts, calls for the elimination of the City Clerk position is nothing new. Attempts to have the position scrapped and replaced with a civil service staff go as far back as the moment the town and city of Danbury were combined but for blocked basically due to partisan politics.
If there is any reason the position should be eliminated, one needs to look no further than the gross incompetence of the present City Clerk Jean Natale.
From routinely not being in her office to service the people of Danbury, performing weddings during the time when she should be in her office, and spending more time joking around with Mary Ann Doran in the Registar of Voters office (thus again, not being available in her office), to using the office of City Clerk for partisan politics, being admonished by the Freedom of Information commission, embarrassing the city while standing next to an anti-immigrant white supremacist skinhead, and not fulfilling requests from council members in a timely fashion, Natale is the poster child for everything that's wrong with the position of City Clerk.
As we now have a chance to finally rid ourselves of this useless position, here's another comment from someone who knows a thing or two about the position of City Clerk...since she was the ASSISTANT City Clerk for a number of years. Take note of the person's comment regarding the City Clerk at the time (2001-2003) who happened to be former mayoral candidate Helena Abrantes.
