That is the question being asked by many people that have been calling me. Apparently the answer is when the resignation is that of Mayor Segarra's Chief of Staff Jared Kupiec.
Kupiec announced his resignation almost two weeks ago after a series of missteps and embarrassments causing much stress for Segarra and seriously drawing Segarra's leadership into question. Even though Kupiec announced he was leaving, there has been no "departure date" set. Leaving the date open has many asking if he will be gone next week, maybe six months from now or longer.
More and more it is starting to look like an attempt by Segarra and his Public relations image crew as an attempt to deflect criticism and draw attention away from "Mayor Caviar" by announcing the problem child was heading out, until that happens I'm not buying it.
You can't really blame Kupiec though. For someone that has never really had a long term job during his adult life (adult being a descriptive term only in this case) giving up a six figure gig might be a tough move. With his track record and in the age of Google, where will he go.
In the meantime we are still gassing up his City SUV for his Happy Hour runs.
Law school was the explanation concocted again by the image crew, but normally that requires planning. taking the LSAT's, applying to law schools, and of course the getting accepted part. None of those things happen overnight. But you have to admit it sounds a lot better than saying he was forced out.
A request for clarification of Kupiec's departure date from the Mayor's Office has not been received.
