One look at the way Steve Otis treated Bob Schubert (A decorated 89 year old WWII veteran and the choice is clear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-dF7HOFspA In the below linked video Steve Otis allows the City attorney to attack Mr. Schubert. Is this how we want our citizens treated? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JXoSway7uo&feature=related And here is one more example why Steve Otis is not a good choice for any leadership position. The reason for the firing, according to the council, was Shews, failure to communicate with the council and the mayor on projects. But many who have followed the Otis /Schubert wetlands garden mess, as well as the other Otis environmental missteps (e.g. Hen Island), believe otherwise. Shew's highly questionable decision which may have been vetted by Otis to sic the Westchester County Department of Mental Health on Schubert is more likely the real cause for his being deep-sixed. Shew was Otis's scapegoat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIBsLsvJQWE
