Dear Manager Kisela,
Shame on you for allowing your resentment of my criticism of your excuse filled administration to besmirch the reputation of an individual who has given more to this community than you likely ever will.
You have twisted my observation as to the difficult position, that individual or any individual, would experience in serving on a board that could be called upon to be critical of your error laden finance department while waiting on approvals from other of your departments, into something it was not.
You have shown yourself to be calculating and totally un-trustworthy. You can bet that others will look most unfavorably on your action here, and will be far more cautious in their future dealings with you.
Do not think for a moment you are going to divert your inability to provide a credible explanation as to what went on with the un-permitted land clearing in question on to my shoulders. AND as for finding out what
really occurred well that will take a special investigator armed with subpoena power as is the case with the County’s investigation of its dealings with Waverly Media – and in the succinct words of Attorney Jon Kaney ‘ some people know some things , and now I don’t have to ask so politely ‘
If such a special investigator had been asking questions of you and your staff in the public meeting last Wednesday evening you and they would not have been able to hide behind the hundreds of “I don’t know ” that we heard that evening.
You need to get to work on sending an apology to the individual you have besmirched, AND Council needs to get to work of hiring a special investigator.
