Even though I know the Mayor Vini said a lot of things like:
“The citizens of Montesano need better,” Samuel wrote in a letter sent to The Vidette. “There’s no reason to have TV trucks from Seattle camped outside our City Hall, or to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on bickering and lawsuits. It doesn’t have to be this way. We need to rebuild the trust between city employees, management and city council and with the public.” and
Daily World (3/26/15): “It doesn’t have to be this way,” Samuel said. “We need to rebuild the trust between city employees, management and City Council and with the public. Let’s get back to business and get things done for the good people of our town.”
I cannot figure out what she is doing.She hires an expensive CFO and provides him with outrageous perks, and huge benefits, and then lays of two clerks. Now the City still has to pay for the unemployment for those clerks, there will be labor costs and litigation costs, so my question is, how does that help the City?
No one lost their job in “lay offs” during the last administration, at least Mayor Estes cared about the employees. He would never have balanced a shortfall on the backs of employees and their families. I did not ever think she would be so politically punishing and punitive, these clerks did not support her in the last election. I wish we had not worked so hard to get her elected. She even tells employees not to mention her on Facebook and that she will fire them if they talk.
Wow Vini, you have brought things to a new low!
