EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — Mayor John Cook released a letter Thursday regarding City Manager Joyce Wilson's request for a performance evaluation. The request also sought a raise in salary. His letter reads as follows:
"Over the past two weeks City Manager Joyce Wilson’s performance review has become the center of many media inquiries after the inappropriate release of a related document. After much thought I have come to the conclusion that the City Manager deserves the same rights as any other employee, which is why I have decided not to review her performance at this time, and have so advised the City Council. I made my decision after recognizing that it is not possible to have a productive close out to her performance review in light of the recent attention it has garnered before it was finalized.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me, but after this week I will not be discussing this personnel issue.
John F. Cook
Mayor of El Paso"
