While I'm sure Mr. Kramer is a lovely person and a good employee, I am astounded that no one in city government sees a problem with this arrangement — and the incredible cost to the taxpayers — or feels there is an ethical issue.
The Almanac was also right on point about succession planning. It happens every day in companies around the world. It is nothing new.
Thank you for bringing these issues to light. The taxpayers deserve to have their tax dollars respected.
