Would he get a house also. Maybe this time the City Manager Can RENT. If he can not purchase his own home.

Tea Frank some people who can not purchase homes for lack of funds, Rent. You should have tried it.

Well, now Frank can live on his CALPERS retirement of 100% (or more just like Bob Golton did from PAUSD) and teach at Stanford where he'll collect another wonderful sum of money.
