It's ironic that "Harry Jones" is sang for heroin, as I'm addicted to the never ending saga involving our Mecklenburg County Manager.
First I'm amazed at what has been going on inside Mecklenburg County Government as the list of wrongs is long and stunning.
“Cronyism”, “Embezzlement”, “Accounting Regularities” and General "Mismanagement" is just the start. The DSS is only a symptom of a culture wrought with corruption and a shocking lack of management, oversight and generally accepted business principles.
I have received emails from county employees who tell of co-workers who don't show up for work but are paid just the same. One email suggests that I look into an employee who is on the payroll twice, under both her maiden name and her married name all with Harry Jone's blessing.
The Charlotte Observer has published 23 letters to the editor during the past 60 days all calling for the firing of Harry Jones and his gang of merry thieves. I suspect that an equal number of letters never made the paper.
The Mecklenburg BOCC needs to step up and address their addiction to Harry Jones. If not its time for an intervention.
