Julio was an intelligent and savvy Manager of the Urban Affairs Department and had been the library's liaison to the County Commission until that Department was dismantled due to the budget cuts of 2011 when 250 staff were laid off.
Former County Manager Merrett Stierheim asked for his name and plaque to be removed from the wall of that department after Julio was transferred to be the Manager of Access Services - overseeing all circulation functions at the Main Library.
There's a reason that MDPLS did not win the Sterling Award back in the mid 2000s - this administration stopped listening to front line staff. It's been loyalty over competence as the administration has aged in place. Loyalty over competence parallels the County Mayor's office.
