From Bad To Worse

Listen, when your job is in trouble because you, as a library director, are accused of overbilling, financial kickbacks, and misuse of the library's credit card, chances are good you don't want to spend another $11,000 on a PR crisis management expert. Nevertheless, that's exactly what the embattled director of the Sacramento Public Library did.

The library already employs a full time public relations and marketing person.
