Christopher Stream (Environmental and Public Affairs) and Robert Tekniepe (Environmental and Public Affairs) recently had an article published in the American Review of Public Administration. The article, "You're Fired," focuses on factors that affect county manager turnover in large U.S. counties during an 18-year period. The analysis reveals that measures of political conflict within a county help precipitate county manager removals. Also, increased fiscal stress --although significant --provided somewhat conflicting results. Measures of jurisdictional adversity such as a county's unemployment and poverty rate were found to have no significant impact on involuntary county manager departures.
