Director Neff's Only Confidant Says "Take This Job And Shove it".

Submitted by: Telecom on   2016/02/05 at 5:14 pm ……..
Looks like Neff’s only confidant and technical support, the Public Utilities departmental engineer and project manager has turned in his resignation last week and is leaving for greener pastures next week. You know, the one that Neff swings around and looks towards in council chambers every time the council asks him a simple question and he is unable to answer.
No one left but a number of highly competent employees that he has effectively alienated.
Wow, sounds like De Ja Vu. Can you say Seminole County? I knew you could!

    Well he really does have another confidant, she lunches with him frequently so they can console each other and cry into their soup.

    Can’t wait to see how this all shakes out Tuesday. Maybe he can hire us another study. What the hell why not! He’s an engineer can he make a stand on anything? I’m not impressed at all with his lack of solutions on anything thus far. Dead weight! What has he himself done for the city since Harden hired him? Collected a big fat paycheck.

    To berm, or not to berm: that is the question:
    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The consequences of inadequate consultations,
    Or to take a proactive approach with contingency planning
    And by planning end them? To cry: to weep;
    No more; and by a consultation to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That repeated consultations are end to ’tis an illusion
    Devoutly to be wish’d. The problem will go to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: another consultation will solve the problem
    For in that sleep of illusion what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this conundrum,
    Must give us pause: there’s no respect
    That makes calamity of so long unfinished plan;
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of council,
    The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
    The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
    The insolence of office and the spurns
    That patient merit that the unworthy takes,
    When he himself another consultation make
    With a bare bolderjack or pegasus? who would Harden bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something like career death,
    The undiscover’d country from where Neff’s bourn
    No traveller returns, to Seminole at will
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thoughtlessness,
    And enterprises gone wrong at this moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action. – Soft you now!
    The fair deception revelation now unveiled,
    Be all his sins remember’d.

      FCCMA Lifesaver Award
      Have you helped a Member-in-Transition (MIT) or do you know a FCCMA member who has helped a MIT?
      FCCMA established a policy in 1993 to help full members in the Association who have separated from their local government. FCCMA members are encouraged to hire MITs for special projects and/or interim positions whenever possible.
      In 2003, the Florida City and County Management Foundation adopted criteria for a lifesaver award to thank the membership for its support in hiring MITs. The Foundation was dissolved in 2007 and the Association assumed the policy.
      To qualify for a lifesaver award the FCCMA member must employ a MIT either on a part-time or full-time basis for up to 90 days. If you have employed a MIT or know a member who has employed a MIT, please email Carol Russell at

      Mr. Miller, your arrogance is quite distasteful. You continue to undermine everyone in leadership over you. Your sole goal is to become Department Head. Although you are an award winner, you have no integrity as a man. May God have mercy on you for the treachery you have perpetrated on your Department.

        WOW….this is quite a shocking comment 256. Why on earth would the City Council honor Mr. Miller and his crew in public last week for a job well done if he was a man with no integrity? Must be some treachery and maybe sorcery afoot so that he can entice his crew to do such fine work as to win awards….which you seem to downplay.

          Sounds to me like someone who hasn’t been with the city for too long wrote this 256 blog….or this person gave information to another person who hasn’t been with the city too long or vice versa. Anyway Shame, Shame on you. Sounds pretty insecure to me.

        One should watch out which way the head stone rolls.

  • February 8, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Maybe 256 is Napoleon Bonaparte?

      The seventh Coalition will send him to Saint Helena and then 256 will become 1851. Antiochus Epiphanes, Alexander the Great, The Caesars, Charlamagne, Adolph Hitler all end the same way. Freedom, openness, and transparency win out in the end. The human spirit is a very powerful thing because its origin is divine. Port Orange citizens do not want to return to the beggarly elements but they want to go onto perfection.

      256 is old navy terminology. Talk about no integrity as a man. Looks like 256 and his whole facade of a life is a fraud. I bet my life that if 256 met Mr. Miller on even terms 256 would come up short.
