Neither the City Council not any of its members shall direct or request the appointment, by any other officer or employee of the City, of any person to office or employment, or his or her suspension or removal therefrom, or in any manner take part in the appointment, discipline, or removal of subordinates and employees of the City, except as otherwise provided in this charter.
