Fargo city manager wants more detailed reports from city's Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

(Fargo, ND) -- Fargo City Manager Michael Redlinger says he wants more detailed reports from the city's Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Terry Hogan. 

"Let's be unequivocal about that. I think it was abundantly clear that there is some information gap there in terms of communicating priorities and kind of what they're up to and so you're right, that quantitative data, that should be data that should be there and I fully concur with that. I think that is something that in future reports I'm going to request that that comes out a little bit more clearly, you know as you're communicating to your public and communicating to the elected body," said Redlinger.  

Redlinger made the comment while being interviewed by former Fargo City Commissioner Tony Gehrig Tuesday on WDAY AM 970. Gehrig asked Redlinger if he was "happy" with the presentation that Hogan made Monday night focused on his efforts as the city's Director of DEI. Gehrig was critical of the presentation, saying it lacked "numbers" and said that showed either a "lack of action or attention to detail". 

Hogan has not responded to a request for comment from WDAY News First.
