Port Orange City Council, City Manager, Ted Noftall,
I noticed that City Council is preparing to make a settlement with Roger Smith at the upcoming council meeting. I would like to refresh your memory and have a copy of a letter I sent to all of you on March 5,2013. This started the second investigation. Everything I said was true wasn’t it.
Roger was forced to quit. John Diamond was fired. Mayor Green was not investigated and Rick Wilson has not been fired. The log book kept by Shirley Treon was mentioned in my letter. Almost everyone knew that this book was around for better than 10 years.
Did Mayor Green share with council the information I brought to him in person with a witness on July 14,2012 at his residence or did everyone know this because of the letter I sent you all on March 5,2013. This was six months later after I went to the Mayor and the City did their internal investigation and found nothing.
I think before you close out this investigation it should be properly finished. Not everyone involved has been punished. All you had to do is ask all the employees the right questions and all the information would have come out as I said in my letter.
What happened to the log book kept by Shirley Treon? I think that question should be answered. I worked and gave good service to the City for almost 30 years. I went to the Mayor as a whistleblower with the truth and all of a sudden I was forced to retire or be fired for false allegations that were made about me. I was scared to lose my benefits and retired. The information that I gave to the mayor was all true and most of it was finally shown in the second investigation.
Why was it covered up until I sent you the letter in March 2013? Who covered it up? I think all of these people should be fired too. I was wrongfully retired and this investigation backs that up because I only told the truth. I intend to hire a lawyer in the near future to find out what can be done for what happened to me.
Maybe I deserve my job back. I am sorry that this was taken out on my former coworkers and all the ones that were responsible were not
Please finish this investigation all the way.
