On Thursday Petersburg’s new city manager will mark 30 days in office. She says getting to the know the people who live and work in the city has been eye opening and reassuring.
Aretha Ferrell-Benavides said she isn’t worried about who did what in the past. She’s focused on the future.
"We’re going to looking at our whole operation from top to bottom. To make sure that we’re moving in the right direction with the right individuals as well as making sure we have enough individuals to do what we’re required to do and what the citizens expect of us."
