The Guy Trying To Save A Broke City Just Quit

From NPR, a follow up on a story I posted last week on the city of Harrisburg, whose receiver just quit:
The guy in charge of getting the city of Harrisburg out of debt has left the building. His one assistant is no longer answering her phone.
He came up with a 200-page recovery plan to get the city out of debt. He shopped it around Harrisburg, taking suggestions and negotiating union contracts.
He seemed like a pretty mellow guy. Bowtie. Glasses. Surrounded in his office by tiny busts of Lincoln's head. Someone very driven by ideas of right and wrong.
