For months Cedar Posts has called on the Mecklenburg of County Commissioners to fire Harry Jones. Yesterday the "local paper"finally joined the chorus of concerned citizens and bloggers like Jeff Taylor.
You can read the Observer's Editorial Board's statement here.
Buried in the Observer's on line edition the editorial says in direct terms it is time for Harry Jones to go.
The paper citing his inadequate oversight of the Department of Social Services and the Giving Tree program embezzlement scandal and his forwarding of a critical e-mail from a resident to the man's employer, Bank of America.
The paper also noted his intemperate e-mail critical of library leaders, saying he had written it "based on emotion" and mow, inadequate oversight of mental health contractor Mecklenburg Open Door and Crockett's resulting departure.
What the paper fails to mention is the a pattern of deception, lies and general climate of intimidation and fear that has spread across all departments within Mecklenburg County. Speak to any number of county employees and you will learn of whistle blowers who found themselves black listed, demoted and threatened by Harry Jones.
It's time for the public to keep the pressure on by emailing Jennifer Roberts
Her email addy is: jennifer.roberts@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov
All she needs to read is:
Jones must go!
