Official farewell

January 3, 2012

Newton Assistant City Manager and Planning Director Glenn Pattishall officially retired after more than 28 years with the city.

A reception was held in his honor Tuesday, and Newton City Manager Todd Clark took the opportunity to salute Pattishall's service and present him with a gift bag.

"If it weren't for Glenn, we wouldn't have the jobs we have in this county today," Clark said.

Newton City Council members, economic development officials, business leaders, city employees, city retirees and citizens wished Pattishall well in his retirement, which he said will include more time spent traveling.

Just how can Mr. Pattishall, with his documented history of obstructionism to commerce in Newton have contributed ANY to job creation!

I submit that job creation and a general demise of business in Newton was compounded by his tenure!

Adios Glenn, enjoy your $50k plus pension and generous benefit package and take heed that the taxpayers of Newton are better off now!
