MURDER, SUICIDE AND A CHIMP ON THE LOOSE?
CITY MANAGEMENT SNAPSHOTS: ON THE RUN by Ben Leiter (my pen name)
(207 page memoir available at Amazon/kindle)
CITY MANAGEMENT SNAPSHOTS reveals conflict, corruption and betrayal from behind the scenes of my forty-four year public service career.
You might ask what murder, suicide, drug running, a communist spy, a Nazi and a chimp on the loose have to do with city management? I would have asked the same thing when I started my career. Now I know.
By the way, Moe the chimp, was legally represented by Gloria Allred. Together, they changed the outcome of a local election. I resigned as City Manager the day after that election.
This book presents my tribute to that courageous band of brothers and sisters who work every day to protect local government from rapacious politicians and special interests.
