"Hug-em while you Got-em"

hugsIn an effort to bolster the image of the Mayor’s incompetent manager,  the Mayor’s  pet Chamber of Commerce recently announced  Hug-a-Port Orange Employee Week.  

Unfortunately  Hug week got started too late for the Utilities director and Purchasing manager who didn’t survive the Kelton white wash report.

Connie’s advice —  Hug-em while you Got-em because at lot more of these turkeys have got to go.

 You would think that that the Chamber would be all about lower taxes and efficient government.

Instead they serve as the cheering section for Green and  Kisela.

What is up with that ??

    Now, if the city really wants to fix the meter problems and the rest of the problems in utilities there are two employees that are ready, willing and able to turn the whole department into a state of the art award winner just like the water plant. They need to promote these guys to director and assistant director pronto. If they hire another misfit in trouble there will be no progress. I know these guys and they are great managers and two of the most knowledgeable experienced people in the field of utilities that I ever had the pleasure to work with. They believe in truth and transparency. They are very intelligent and great critical thinkers. I can’t name them because if I did they would probably be fired.

    Dear Constance,
    Well….Yes…the Chamber of Commerce, you would think, would be a bastion of free market values and practices. Up by our boot straps, we rise or fall on merit only. Unfettered Capitalism by God. Well…not exactly. Mike and I were just at the Chamber on Wednesday at 8:00 AM. An Economic Forum Update. All 4 presenters were either from local government or employed by some quasi governmental entity. The taxpayer in all 4 instances was heavily involved. Just not represented.
    And bet you every business person there yesterday would tell you they are fiscal conservatives and despise and deplore the culture of dependency we have created in poor people in this country. Cut those Food Stamps!!
    Well dear Constance, here is the way I see it. We have two sets of hogs slopping at the Taxpayer funded trough. One set is just much better dressed. It was a very well dressed crowd. And incredibly self congratulatory and smug. And manipulating the system far more effectively than the other hogs. They are on welfare too. They just don’t see it that way. I hope we can begin to encourage both sets of hogs to get off the government tit and stand on their own two feet. Ok..hooves.
    Not sure how we can ultimately achieve that goal. But I think we have made a start here locally. Today at least is a victory. Two turkeys have flown the coop.

    They should call it “MUG AND EMPLOYEE WEEK” because that is what Kisela has been doing to all of his GOOD, LOYAL AND COMPETENT EMPLOYEES EVER SINCE HE SET FOOT ON THE CITY OF PORT ORANGE PROPERTY.

    Who next will be sacrificed by the Lifesaver before the council identifies the Lifesaver as the root of the problem?

    Proclus made this prognostication Thursday morning!

    Yes Hermes I have viewed your enlightening video. Scapegoating is certainly a defense mechanism of a covert narcissist. I predict that in the ensuing days the Lifesaver will project his sins onto others in an attempt to deflect responsibility from himself. The question to be asked is will our elected officials permit this egregious tragedy which will be the fatal blow to an already abused workforce infrastructure or will they make a motion for the three votes necessary to purge the root of this cancer from the organization before it reaches an irreversible stage?

    This is the dilemma that the remaining senior technical staff in each department and all of the City of Port Orange employee stakeholders have to consider. Is the city council going to step up and eradicate the cancer from this organization so that employee stakeholders have their faith restored in the organization that they have committed themselves to, or is one demagogic figure imported by the mayor more value than the entire workforce infrastructure and its potential implosion. Should the employees hang around and see if the council will have the resolve to do the right thing, or should all the valuable unappreciated employees make a strategic exodus to more fertile and rewarding organizations?
