Let's get real! More than half the city workers of Campbell got their jobs because they know someone or are related to someone and it goes on in EVERY city! I'm not sure you need a civil service test to read meters. It would cost the city way more than $5,000 in lawsuits if he kept Mr.Jackson.

My opinion is Mayor VanSuch did not create this problem..it was created by Mr.Krinos. D.Jackson accepted that job with the understanding he would have to take the civil service test and pass. He did not pass. So let me get this straight..You want Mayor Vansuch to keep Jackson even though he didn't pass the test? what about the guys who did pass? Is that fair to them? Then it would cost the city more money in law suits. There are jobs in the city that do not require a civil service test. I respect an honest person who is trying to do the right thing, although i feel bad for Mr.Jacksons situation, what is the law is the law..He took this job knowing he had to take the test and pass. I personally don't even think he should have been hired in that manner..But his dad was the city admin. at the time..sooooo?????
