Their city manager has been a nightmare for Savannah

When it comes to screwing up, she makes Fred look like a piker.

I don't understand what it is

I don't understand what it is about government jobs and "asking" people to resign. If they're not doing the job or living up to standards then fire them already! This funny business about asking someone to resign is ridiculous. If they're trying to save face, it's rather pointless since the person already burnt enough bridges not doing their job.
