Today's N&O story, headlined "No bull for the Bull City," gives props to Bonfield for an emphasis on -- yes, Virginia -- "fiscal discipline, cooperation, strategic planning, set priorities, [and] saying 'No'" and lays out Bonfield's plan to reorganize the city's 23 departments into three teams, to be headed by deputy city managers.
Kevin Davis at Bull City Rising says this is a win for neighborhoods, and notes expanded responsibilities for another respected member of the city team, Ted Voorhees.
We're curious whom Bonfield will tap to head up the "Community Building," team, which will include city/county planning, neighborhood improvement and the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the last of which oversees the Durham Performing Arts Center. See Matt Saldaña's story in this week's Indy for more.
