On Second Thought, Armas Will Not Be South San Francisco's City Manager

Jesus Armas
HAYWARD | South San Francisco is having second thoughts about hiring former Hayward school board president Jesus Armas as its next city manager. After the city’s city council apparently approved the terms of a 2-year, $230,000 contract earlier this month, an internal memorandum dated Sept. 19, says otherwise.

“The City Council has elected to continue with the City Manger recruitment process and to also consider the selection of an Interim City Manager while that recruitment process continues,” wrote South San Francisco Mayor Pedro Gonzalez. The current city manager will continue through Nov. 1, the previous date of his retirement.

During a Sept. 11 City Council meeting, its appeared the hiring of Armas, a former South San Francisco city manager in the late eighties who also served as Hayward’s city manager and later a school board member until last year, was a done deal. The council approved the agenda items late in the evening without discussion. A request to the South San Francisco city manager’s office was not returned as of Thursday evening.

However, the city’s staff may have done some eleventh hour research into Armas’s infamous extra-marital affair with a fellow school board member that resulted in both not seeking near certain re-election in November 2012.

Poor guy. Now he'll be forced to live on his $200,000 pension.

And his wife probably gets close to 100k as a school district retiree. Thanks to the promotion she received when Armas was on the board.

Are they still together? I hope not. Hope she's collecting half that pension.

Rather than anyone considering him for a job as a city manager, a much better idea would be if he, and also most of the rest of the Bay area's politicians, find future employment by hiring an agent who specializes in supplying clowns to circuses.

"Send in the clowns! Oh, wait. They're already here!"

Come on EBC if you just attend the HUSD board meetings again you will see that there is still plenty to investigate and expose. The students of Hayward deserve your diligence and your voice to the community. Armas left a deep wound in HUSD that must be healed with your help. Please come back to board meetings.
