To Alcoa officers. You better be ready for this A hole, dictator. Its his way and no other. If he did not hire you, your days are numbered.
Congratulations

One man's trash (Huntersville) is another man's treasure (Alcoa). Who on Earth hired this bozo? Bozo? Are they running a circus in Alcoa or do they just have the Ring Leader as a city manager. Why would anyone hire someone who was forced to retire/resign? Better yet, why would the committee who hired this two time loser, not check his background before they offered him the job? Someone needs to answer many, many questions!

I have friends in Charlotte and they say this Potter guy is a complete joke. They said he had inappropriate relationships with female subordinates and that he ruled with an iron fist. They said no one would speak out against him and the city manager had gotten wind of this and asked him to resign or be fired.
It is a mystery to me why Mark Johnson would hire such a buffoon! I guess Mark feels like he can control him and the APD by having him move into the same neighborhood and keeping more qualified local applicants out of HIS city! The Alcoa City Commission needs to wake up and realize who is actually hurting our city instead of helping!

Everything that you said in your comment has come to pass. This man is the definition of evil incarnate. He is ruining APD more and more with each passing day. He has run off the good officers and has only kept the subservient ones that will do his will without question of morality or ethics. The only reason that he got the position was his connection with CALEA. So, APD, which once was a brotherhood of officers, has turned into a group of backstabbing wrongdoers... BUT they have the CALEA certificate... big whoop!
Is there a way to get in touch with you or anyone else who left a comment or had an opinion? This NEEDS to stop!

Potter has ruined so many lives. He gave an unmerited award to a woman for being a good citizen (she only did her job and what anyone else would do in the same situation). The truth behind her award was that she was messing around with several officers and this kept her quiet for the time. He has also run off the officers with morals who are determined to uphold the laws. The way that I see it is he awards the negative and punishes the positive.
I'm seeking more information because this needs to stop before it gets any worst. Can I contact you?
Deja vu

Déjà vu... this is happening all over again. Is Poter's wife stupid, insecure or what? What will Johnson do when these 3 Alcoa women press charges?
