Jon Gurban's Angry Management


If you think being in charge of the Park system is a tranquil job, you haven't met Jon Gurban. A divisive figure since his controversial appointment, Gurban has rarely been one to control his temper. As Emily Kaiser writes:

One of the complaints that has plagued Gurban as superintendent is that he seems temperamentally unsuited for a job that requires extensive people skills and serves so many constituencies, from the general public and department employees to the park commissioners and local politicians.
