Re: “Game Changer

Jan simply doesn't belong there. She is arrogant, has no respect for her employees, makes too many assumptions about people, and doesn't have the background knowledge to be overseeing the departments. She doesn't deserve the credit for the changes that have been made - other than her willingness to fire people. Those changes were made by other staff from Verner's administration. She isn't a team builder or a good collaborator - her arrogance and lack of respect for others prevents it. Chesney was fired because he's not an a-hole to his staff. If you look at it closely, she's a lot like the mayor. No one enjoys working for either one of them and neither will tolerate anyone who doesn't agree with them. The only reason they want to be challenged is so they know who to fire.

Re: “Game Changer

Yes Jan Quintrall's hiring and firing practices in Spokane have been legendary for a very long time.

Re: “Game Changer

While Jan is far from innocent in how she manages people and handles things, she is correct in her judgments about how Chesney managed his department. He lacked the ability to communicate effectively with his staff, garnered little respect, and made many promises that his staff simply could not deliver on without breaking the law. The staff in that department is AMAZING and the cultural shift that many have seen was started before Chesney arrived. It was started by proactive STAFF who wanted to make things better.
