Just look at the video evidence. Parker on POG back in early 2013 saying he knew nothing about Smith and the admin time. .Not to mention Chief Monaham last Tuesday on POG saying Parker’s Skype testimony asserting that bible toting and contrite Roger Smith was an honorable man who never lied to Parker and in the summer of 2012 came clean to Parker when Parker confronted him on the issuance of administrative leave. All this after Green revealed Rob Poust’s allegations to Parker without the council’s knowledge for another 8 months. Can you say political embarrassment? I knew you could!
According to Chief Monoham, Parker’s Skype testimony was to the effect that Roger was under the inadvertent impression that he had the delegated authority under the civil service discretionary rule to issue this time to deserving exempt employees on behalf of the city manager. Parker’s testimony was that he informed Roger of his misinterpretation of the situation and that he simply should desist from doing this in the future. Roger did not issue any more administrative time after that although Craig Kisela compelled him to resign for something that Parker would not admit at that time that he gave him clemency for but recently revealed this in testimony to the Port Orange Police investigator. Parker’s authority as the city manager gave him the discretion to approve the administrative leave which Parker certainly invoked by covering Smith in the summer of 2012 per his recent Skype testimony to Port Orange Police Department in connection with the recent criminal investigation.Thank goodness for stipulation releases like Smith signed and the short sightedness of Smith and his attorney’s because he was royally screwed by Ken Parker and the powers that be. Wow, if only FDLE was involved in this and could dissect this criminal whitewash!
If there is any integrity left within the context of city government, namely the city council this cannot be laid to rest. A citizens investigatory committee should be established to pursue a proper administrative investigation to look into this situation and determine the extent of the cover-up and determine if this should be turned over to FDLE for a proper criminal investigation. This committee should be able to unveil whether there are administrative penalties under the city civil service rules and employee collective bargaining contract that would compel immediate punitive action to be determined by evidence of malfeasance or misfeasance within the organization. I strongly suggest that Ted Noftall be one of the people on this citizens investigative committee. He is a pit bull and with the help of honest people that will invariably come to his aid he and other prominent citizens on the committee will invariably be able to finally get all the truth out and finally clean our city up.
This contradictory and diametrically opposed information from Parker can be compared by POG videos from March of 2012 and from Monoham’s revelations on last Tuesday’s POG video. This being said, either Parker committed perjury in his testimony to the police or he lied to the council and the citizens of Port Orange on POG television back in March of 2012. This will inevitably come out one way or the other in due time. Does any one with any integrity care about this incongruence? Maybe Parker should have a sit down with the pastor of his church and decide whether he wants to finally clear his deceitful soul.
