Mayor Phil Gets His Man

Or so it looks:

Michael Bernard, District Attorney Susan Reed's No. 2, emerged Monday as the top pick for city attorney.

City Manager Rolando Bono selected Bernard, who was Mayor Phil Hardberger's favorite for the position, as finalist, according to a City Council agenda posted this morning. The council will vote Thursday on his nomination.

The mayor has been pushing for this pick since the very beginning. If he gets his way, Hardberger will have brought in a new city manager and city attorney within the first four months of his term.
