Brewer recommends Kolb for Durham, N.C. job

BrewerAbout four months ago, Mayor Carl Brewer accepted former city manager George Kolb’s resignation, citing “philosophical differences.” This week, he told, that he would recommend Kolb for the city manager position in Durham, N.C., where Kolb is one of three finalists.

“He was passionate about his direction, and we were passionate about ours, and he decided to go his way, and we went our way,” Brewer told The News and Observer Monday.

Former Mayor Carlos Mayans was not so kind. “He’s a very charming person, but very, very divisive,” Mayans told the North Carolina newspaper.
