Happiness for all of the haters....


San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley has announced her retirement, effective in 2019.
Ive wanted to retire for at least two years, but have stayed to see through a number of major city projects such as the 2017 bond program development and approval, the Alamo plan, our equity assessment program and the Frost Tower P3, she wrote in a letter to community leaders distributed Thursday morning.

I glad we had that vote and it passed. Not!

It will be very interesting to see how the requirement process is going to go...

The cap on the new city manager is something like $250k.

Believe it or not they will have a hard time recruiting top talent at that wage.

The dummys who voted yes will get what they get.

Do I think she did a good job? Yes. Do I think she deserved $500K+ a year? No.

We lost major corporate presence during her tenure, crime is up and the airport still isn't attracting flights.

Maybe I judge by a different standard.

She has done a good job overall.

HOWEVER

She has basically been allowed to do whatever the **** she wants with no checks on what she does. Which has been a problem.


Also isnt the airport adding new non stop flights all the time with record passengers? Cant really blame SAT for the no direct flight to DC. They kinda took it on that one and the Texas politicians just let the lobbyists (or were bought off by them) to not really fight that.

No offense, you do not live here nor did you pay her salary.

The airport went from 36 direct flights 2 yeas ago to 54 today. Last year we finally hit 9 million passengers and this year we are track to hit 10 million.

If you are talking about AT&T as the corporate company lost in 2008? That was three years after she was transforming the city. Also, keep in mind AT&T did not give city government a chance. They held a meeting one week prior to the announcement and said nothing about their issues with the city.

Crime is up? The population is up by 30% in her tenure so while crime being ip is terrible it is not unexpected. Finally, why are you blaming her for that? It was city Council that takes cares of the SAPD.

My family lived in SA for over 100 years - many still do. I do business in SA - with both suppliers and vendors. AT&T left because of the lack of direct flights (among other things). And the week before the announcement, the decision had long been made.

Yes, crime is up - and beyond the rise in population. She spent millions trying to bust a contract that she'd help formulate - and for naught. And the COP answers to HER office - not the mayor's. She hired McManus - not the mayor.

AT&T left because Stephenson had no intention of NOT leaving when he took over, mostly as a means to move on from Whitacare.

San Antonio could have offered the moon and then some, and he would have still moved the company because he wanted to 'make his mark' from the get go.

Some hard numbers to consider:

Sheryl Scully was paid $621,676.64 in 2017 - her base salary of $450,000 plus other bonuses, benefits and compensation. She got an increase for 2018 (raising her base salary to $475,000, although the sum of the rest of her compensation for this year is not available yet.) She oversaw an annual budget of $2.8 billion.

For comparisons in Texas, in Dallas, the City Manager earns $375,000, managing a budget of $3.6 billion.

And in Fort Worth, the City Manager earns $327,600, managing a budget of $731 million.

The only U.S. city larger than San Antonio that uses a council/manager form of government is Phoenix. There, the City Manager earns about $315,000.

As for the new cap on the city manager's salary:

The San Antonio's lowest-paid full-time city employees currently earn $29,936.40 per year (about $14.35 per hour.) So 10x that would be $299,364.00.
