That's why "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" makes so much sense. It's a choice to be in public service, and it's a choice that carries clear requirements to be accountable to the public.
Instead the city took the extreme step of suing Vitale and the Boomerang, asking for a ruling keeping Guerin's personnel records secret. They asked the Albany County district judge to rule that they had provided all of the documents required under Wyoming law.
If the decision to hire Guerin was one they supported, the right thing to do would be to turn over all the information and explain why she was the best choice.
The city manager said no to releasing documents

"If you can't stand the heat, you'd better stay out of the kitchen," wrote the judge.
Guerin got the very desirable city job over all those applicants, and a city councilman, Joe Vitale, wanted to know why. The job requirement listed specific qualifications: five years in recreation management and a college degree that included physical education or recreation.
This case illustrates why the public has a right to know. And it showcases all the human reactions that public officials sometimes have when asked to explain themselves.
Guerin had served as mayor of Laramie, a grant manager in the city manager's office and is co owner of Coal Creek Coffee Co. Her public service and business credentials are clear. But Vitale wanted to see if she met the published qualifications to manage recreation for the city.

Working in the public sector offers many job satisfactions, from serving the community to having a say over how things go in your home town. It also brings its own special expectations of being open and transparent.
Not a great endorsement of the decision to hire Guerin, if it can't stand the light of day.
They are saying that the tricky decisions of public life should err on the side of letting the public know what's going on.

You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.
And the city's suit got precisely nowhere with the district judge.
In the case of Guerin, it is the city's money that pays her salary. The job was publicly advertised. Why shouldn't citizens know what's being done with their money? And why shouldn't they be able to ask if the best person is running their recreation programs.
