OS-ME, the requirement for the director were reduced several years ago so that Ms. Straight could apply. Prior to her promotion a degree was required for the position.

Huffy is the one that The Parks Director was caught with a few years back and her late Husband DIVORCED HER over it..
Now He works under Her as the Parks Supt. Check out His work! He don't care.
What a cozy SITUATION though for these 2 City Employees. MUST BE NICE!

Not only was that position lowered, The Parks Director got the position lowered for the Park's Superintendent so he could come in under Her. The guy that was in this position was threw by the wayside and this position was introduced so that HUFFY could take over.(THIS IS THE PARKS DIRECTOR'S LOVER).
Neither one had the qualification's to be in these position's so they got the Mayor and BOA to lower the standards so they could qualify.
She was charged with embezzlement a few years back from a bank in Biloxi that she worked at and someone told us that she did some time from that charge so why would is she be in this position to start with?
We have had the opportunity to meet Her a few times and She acts as though this CITY would be lost without her.
Get someone that has the QULIFICATIONS to do this job and DO NOT CUT CORNER'S!

Just want to add that HUFFY was the one that worked on Geri Straight's house after KATRINA and that's where it all began and it fed right into a City POSITION.
These People think they are slick and I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT READS THIS FORUM; WHEN IT COMES TO THESE (2) PEOPLE ITS NOT ALL ABOUT THE CHILDREN!
Everything that comes out of Huff's mouth is a curse word and the employee's are absolutely scared of the Director.
As a taxpayer of this community, I think this BOA need to revisit these two positions within this City and put the qualifications back in place since we are dealing with our children in this community.

And now after my other post about the Fort, I find out that the FORT falls under THE PARKS DIRECTOR GERI STRAIGHT.
This explains everything! We are hoping that we can get this BOA to look into this Department and pay ATTENTION to what is going on.
Look at these Parks Facilities. They are all not being kept up. She wants to expand and do wonderful things for this City but the more we dig into this the more we are beginning to believe that the City should not have lowered the STANDARDS for someone to take a position to watch the KIDS of our community. And then the standards were lowered for her LOVER to be moved into a position under her.
There will be some other things coming out in the near future on this matter.
We are gathering all the info we can on this matter and WE hope the City will do the same because this is not going away at this moment.

The people of this city needs to wake up.
The city has a good after school program. I sent my kid's there years ago and we enjoyed it.
Now you have a convicted FELON running the program!
They say; people can change; and they do but not if the City has to lower the standards for this position of DIRECTOR so this person can qualify for the JOB. And then the standards are lowered so that her LOVER could move into the position under her.
This is our CHILDREN going here.
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
