QUOTE: They say that he has gone too far, and that he is trying to run the city single-handedly, firing department heads, upbraiding public officials and starting secret investigations.  In his most controversial move, Mr. Wilder last month ordered the offices of the school board moved out of City Hall in the middle of the night. On Sept. 22, accompanied by the police, 150 movers from three companies dismantled the offices on the top six floors of City Hall and moved their contents into vans.
