Cherokee, you are so wrong. First Julie never failed an audit with the state. An audit has official findings and, as I understand it,none were ever written. Any official audits were passed. If you think she sat on her *** and did absolutely nothing, them please explain to me how the Dam was rehabilitated, the industrial park road was finished, not to mention, third and maple as well as a water storage tank, water treatment plant, fire station and police station. If you think all these projects got done because of the City Manager, City Council or John Eckley you are seriously mistaken. The City is going to realize just how much Julie did do, now that she's gone and when they get their *** in a crack.

Then how come they haven't got reimbursed yet, and are in a shortfall since last summer? or are you clueless? All the projects were funded seperately, some with state money, federal money, and/or with grants, which she had help from a temp worker previously mentioned in an article, which was making way too much for everything that Julie required her to do. She might have established and completed these projects successfully, however, financially there were deficiencies.

I find it funny how people think Julie has dont such a great job for the city of Bloomfield, but I must remind all of you that she has failed many state audits to get Bloomfield reimbursed for the funds she used for all her projects. Lets be realistic here. She sat on her **** and did absolutely nothing the entire time she worked there. She has no clue how to run a project, shes only good for getting grants for things, and she never ever follows through on getting a single thing done.
Maybe you should consider reading the note from LIBEL again. If thats to much for you to focus on may I suggest sentence #3 and #4. Oh by the way is dont some word in cherokee!

I can only imagine which sorry employee you are. You are about as worthless as they come. Julie can look back on her time with the city and be proud of what she has accomplished. I believe that whatever contribution you may have made for the city pales in comparision. Bloomfield is not the only city in the state or in our area to have difficulty getting reimbursed for a stimulus project. Our City Father's were very short sighted to blame her. The City Manager does not have a clue as to what it takes to do this job and unfortunately the Council is not paying attention to what is happening at City Hall. Now there is no one down there that knows what they are doing and the citizens will be the ones to pay for such incompetence. Bloomfield used to be looked as visionary and moving in the right direction. Now they are the laughing stock of the county. And whose bright idea was it to hold an illegal unadvertised meeting where you instruct and run off employees. I hope the State Attorney General's office is paying attention because this is absolutely ridiculous. I am sure this is how they do things in Oklahoma but this ain't Oklahoma!
