In the continuing saga that is Mark Spencer, the word is that Mark Spencer is going to try to get Frank Fairbanks fired. If you don't know Fairbanks, he has been the city manager of Phoenix for about a million years, and he is getting ready to retire anyway.
Mark couldn't get Jack Harris fired, he couldn't get the Mayor to do what he wanted, so now he has set his sights on a new target. I figure he needs to claim at least one victory so he is going to go after a guy that is getting ready to retire, then he will say that he is the reason that Fairbanks left.
Mark has sunk to a new all time low.
So, this is how I see this one playing out. Mark has a press conference, says that Fairbanks has done all kinds of stuff wrong then he says that it's time for Fairbanks to leave the city. Like I said, everyone who knows anything expects that Fairbanks will retire this year, so it's almost guaranteed that Fairbanks leaves. Mark just wants to make sure that he gets credit -- he's been impotent so far so this will be like his dose of viagra.
What I can't figure out is who does Mark have in mind to replace Fairbanks. As shortsighted as Mark has been, I doubt that he would ask for Fairbanks to resign unless he had someone in mind to replace him. Someone who likes beanies and rifles, but not Jack Harris.
What I know is that Mark is certain to embarrass himself and PLEA again as he keeps trying to maneuver himself into a position of supreme ruler.
