So on the other hand if the above is not true then what you did was hire Marianna to run all the upper paid staff out of town either through elimination of positions or though a type of harassment. Harassment to the point where you demand a person to take on the workload of several other full time positions and demand the same level of work. To me that is outrageous. I realize that there is a certain amount of waste in Government but to demand what was cruel and probably illegal if challenged by the worker.
Take Johnny Goetz’s position he was hired as a inspector. At the time of his departure he took on code enforcement, top inspector, Trash, and other jobs. I am sure that it will take several new employees to fulfill the tasks Johnny performed. I do not say this because I like Johnny , I say this because I know it to be true. All of you know I bucked heads with Johnny plenty. What I learned and thought is that Johnny was here to stay. So I figured out that I needed to work with him instead of against him. I sat in on meetings in order to make the changes so that all of the contractors would be on the same page of the code and in compliance. This was working but know Johnny is gone. I have to start over. There is a new code coming in January and I will bet you there will be once again a great level of lack of enforcement and compliance.
Johnny , Ray , Mark, and others made far less mistakes costing the town than that of the Airport Director had. Yet in the case of the Airport director you would not fire him early on. In a small town we do not want your current style of management. It is abusive, arrogant and will get us into trouble again.
Lastly if the rumors are correct that you intend to hire Tom Cage I strongly advise against this. I have nothing against Tom as a person or a businessman. However I feel he lacks the education and qualifications as Manager of Government operations. What we do not need is a person who does not know the law fluently as to the running of the local government. That is how things get screwed up and loose 40 plus Million. I can’t emphasize that enough.
