Rob Zur Schmiede’s detractors have taken great pains to spin his experience and accomplishments to convince us he is not qualified to be a council person. Contrary to the spin doctors spin, Rob’s achievements, in over 36 years of toil in both private and public sectors, more than qualify him to be a council person.
As voters, we all get to be HR managers for a day. We should decide who to hire based on fact* not spin. Study of the facts, not the spin, evidences Rob should be one of our new hires.
*A few facts about Rob: An MBA; submersion in public/private activity involving hundreds of millions of dollars; project manager of large scale residential development; commercial real estate development; Development and implementation of small business loan programs; Public planning department manager; numerous appointments to city and county boards and commissions.
