It's about time someone took a look at what she is doing out there and how she is running the department. People should not be judged by their personal life but if you bring it into your workplace then you must face the consequences.I hope the council does what is best for Union County and overlooks how many years she has worked there. I think there needs to be a new person in charge of the department to monitor & delegate things.

I think it's pretty ironic over which commissioner seems to be defending her.

I'm in an agreement all the way. 1 misdeed, a costly one at that, can overrule ones years of good conduct. I've heard a little but not much more to go on than what I heard from an inner source and of course, here. Ones station as a Superviser and past good deeds does not excuse ones present guilt, IF misconduct is truly found to be factual. If re-instated, something has to be thought of twice, things, gone over again and again and again. Collecting the facts pertaining to the charge(s)/allegation(s) is a must before years of service, loyalty and ones Career is abruptly halted. As the age old motto goes in court, should apply here as well. Innocent untill proven guilty.

I totally agree that someone is innocent until proven guilty but there is already a witness that has said she has had her personal boyfriend/employee at her house doing work on two different occasions. How is she going to defend that? It is what it is!

I agree if we are going to have to pay for the mismanagement of her budget. Namely the new Wheel Tax! Fine I don't mind helping out once a year to help pay to fix the horrible roads but don't allow her to continue to run our county and make the taxpayers pay for her mistakes that is just no fair.

It appears that the building inspectors office has played a part in the Wanda/Rick saga. After getting tips the state auditor compared dates inspections were made at Wanda's new house and payroll records from the highway department. The auditor found that Rick was at the new home on the days of the inspections & was also payed for working full days for the highway department.

Wanda & Rick are now on a mission to get the building inspector fired. I just heard that today Rick went to the Area Plan office to try to get the building inspector to sign a paper saying that he was not at the new house when the inspections were done. I was told it was quite a sene. There were lost of people there to witness it including the police.

I was also told that after Rick left the office him & Wanda contacted the commissioner & told them that he just went in to talk to the building inspector & she got out of control.

And of course the witness would not lie. I want to know why he has no life other than trying to watch her?

I have no idea if the allegations are true but one thing must be true. This Hart guy has to have some mental issues.
Just who is this guy and why does he seem to stalk people. I have heard stories that he followed the supervisor on a Sunday afternoon with her children in the car with her. Why is he allowed to terrorize innocent children like that?
I'm afraid it's going to end bad with him causing an accident.
My fear is when this is all over, who will he have his sites on next.
