Less than a month ago, the city of Carson hired a City Manager named City Manager Sam Ghaly, though numerous questions about his qualifications had been raised.
Mayor Jim Dear defended him as “competent, intelligent, experienced and able to talk to people.”
This week the Council fired Ghaly. Something about “inconsistencies in his resume” and well, no qualifications.
Mayor Dear issued a written statement: “On behalf of the whole City Council, we thank Mr. Ghaly for his services to the community and extend our best wishes to him in his future professional endeavors.”
