November 18, 2011. Jim Howard, city purchasing director, who wears his pro-life and conservative credentials on his sleeve, was terminated without warning, and no reasonable explanation was given. You can only imagine, no wait, you imagined correctly.
December 21, 2011. Beth Malloy gets her walking papers. Her explanation; “She said she had both personal and professional reasons to leave.” Professional reasons? One can only imagine. I suspect a tiff with the administration. Glad she left nonetheless.
January 28, 2012. Andi Udris is shown the door from The Alliance. He was an outspoken individual, and successful at his job. Udris also openly supported the “right- to- work” legislation, something Henry opposed. He leaves under a cloud of suspicion. Kevin Leininger stated just the other day:
But surely an agency that spends so much of the public’s money and claims to represent its interests can muster a better explanation for what happened than the terse two-sentence news released issued Friday stating that Udris had resigned to “pursue other interests” – the oldest euphemism in the book for a separation that is not entirely voluntary.
February 2, 2012. King Henry kills the city-county homeland security agreement. No reason, he just did it. On Thursday, Henry sent a letter to the county commissioners stating the agreement is over in 60 days. That’s it, no explanation. According to one county commissioner, the was no advance warning, and no complaints from the city.
Henry writes: ”While the past six years have been a valuable experiment, with the challenges of budgetary constraints, the city must work to find more effective service solutions for its residents”
Effective solutions? More lockstep democrats, one could suppose.
