Who was the boss?

A couple of things jumped out while reading about the police spokeswoman who kept her city-owned vehicle several days after being terminated (“Spokeswoman for City Police Returns Vehicle 7 Days After Firing,” March 11). No. 1 was that her salary went from $63,800 in 2007 to $84,700 in 2012. A $21,000 raise in five years! No. 2 was that Guy Costa, who conducted an inventory to create a master list of city-issued cars, failed to create a list of managers to oversee these cars. When asked, Mr. Costa didn’t know who was responsible for ensuring the vehicle’s timely return.

A guess on my part, but I’m thinking whoever gave Diane Richard her raises just might be the one who should have told her to leave the keys on her way out the door! Ms. Richard answered to somebody in city management, right? All Mr. Costa had to do was look up her manager’s name and … whoa. There you go, Mr. Costa!
