BREAKING NEWS! SATURDAY, 6:30 P.M. PRICE QUITS AGAIN TO MOVE UP DATE OF DEPARTURE TO AS OF JULY 26, 2013?
The SCPR has just been told by a highly reliable source that Warren Price has quit, as of Friday (yesterday), the Healy administration as the administration's safety director.
The Report understands that Price broke the news to friends at the Conestoga Grill in downtown Canton some time yesterday.
The SCPR's source says that a Canton councilman went looking for Price when rumor started swirling around town that Price had quit earlier in the day.
The councilman, The Report is told, was able to find Price at the Conestoga and confirm the quitting.
The Report's source does not know why Price left well in advance of an agreement with the mayor that he would stay on through the end of 2013.
Of course, the SCPR broke the story on July 16th that Price quit but that he had decided not to leave immediately at the behest of Mayor Healy.
The Report was told for that story that Price initially wanted to leave with two weeks notice but later decided on a 90 day timeframe.
In extended discussions with Healy, Price agreed to stay through December 31, 2013.
Yours truly was as of the blog of July 16th skeptical that Price could abide Healy another five months and therefore is not surprised to hear of the early departure.
But it is interesting that Price's agreement to stay on a while longer apparently has lasted all of 10 days.
