I want to run the Golden Empire Transit.

I have absolutely no idea how many people ride the GET bus which keeps me right on par with current GET CEO Karen King.

As former Washington Post Editor Ben Bradley used to say, I don’t tell the truth. I just tell you what people tell me and Ken Weir said on “TRBS” King hasn’t a clue. Vice Mayor Weir described his recent and first confrontation with King as “unpleasant”. When he quite naturally inquired about her ridership she conceded she didn’t know!!!

Are you kidding? Please tell me you’re kidding.

Unfortunately, however, the joke is on us and all those who depend on those gray whales of the streets of Bakersfield. And that fact, tied with a labor force still questioning her leadership, merit pay raise (She now makes $213,000 while our city manager makes 228 thousand to run the city.) and overall competence, spells a case for a thorough investigation and assessment of her abilities.

Thankfully, voices in our city chorus continue to hold her feet and those of a few GET Bus board members to the fire calling for immediate improvements.
Terry Maxwell, perhaps the group’s most vocal member on the issue, says he believes a “timetable” should be established for marked improvements and if said progress is not made it’s time, as they say in most human resources department, “…to move in a different direction”.

Let’s hope that horse hasn’t already left the barn. No one, including yours truly, is hoping King fails. For me, I just want her to perhaps concede shortcomings and adhere to the suggestions of the council. But history tells us few leaders, completely ensconced in the proverbial Ivory Tower, get it before it is too late
