Could Tacoma's new city manager be a closet libertarian?

Last night Tacoma's recently hired City Manager unveiled a radical vision for tax reform in the City. The city's portion of the B&O tax would be gone, and utility taxes would be lowered. In their place would be user fees for police, fire and library services.

Of course the City Council had plenty of questions and the City Manager was short on answers. And it may be too radical for timid city officials. But the basic idea sounds very libertarian to me.
