You are so true, justsayin!!!

This is crazy.......Everyone knows that as a Manager, if you don't have some people mad at you, then you are not doing your job! Managers aren't there to be nice and make everyone happy.

The City Manager follows the direction of the Mayor & Council. He was hired to straighten the city out. His job is to find areas that need improvement and implement those improvements. His job is to make sure that he can save money for the citizens, i.e. make sure folks are working for their salary.

Most of the people that are mad at him and want him gone are slackers. Our good ole boy network has given jobs to folks that are lazy. They have had their positions for 10, 15, 20 years and someone is finally asking them to do some work and they are mad.(Now, I am not referring to all employees, just a few that don't mind causing problems)

I'm with you, Justsayin, what are the specifics that make people feel he must go?

What city manager are you talking about OMG? Certainly not Mount Holly NC's city manager! He is such a joke! Save the city money!?! Have you seen the new city hall? Why don't you look into some of the city manager's spending? As for following the directions of the mayor and city council, you must have been out of town last week when he not only did not follow the directions of the city council he rferred to them as "a bunch of 4 year olds". The idiot on a power trip has got to go before the city loses anymore employees because of his actions or he spends of the city's money on anymore stupid unnecessary things!

Still very vague. I do agree, however, that the council could be compared to a bunch of 4 year olds and that city hall was planned, money spent and voted on way before he was hired.

Not defending the man...just stating some facts. Which is what I'd love to hear from people who are displeased. Facts.

Most of the city employees are displeased with him and could tell you plenty if they didn't have a fear of losing their jobs for speaking the truth. And I'm not talking about the so called slackers.

eh, whatever. You don't have any real facts or you would have brought them up. That makes your opinion irrelevant.

Just to list a few reasons the Mount Holly City Manager should go:

- using City equipment and manpower to repair his home sewer and water lines that should have been his own expense!! Mayor Whitt covered his ass on this one because the Mayor had taken advantage of the same things!!

- authorizing the City of Belmont to tap onto a Mount Holly waterline just past Rhyne's
Estates on Perfection Ave. This was done without council approval but Mayor Whitt covered his ass!!

- he is insubordinate to the folks that hire and fire him!!

And i could go on and on about how he has stood by while members of the police department's command staff have sexually harassed female employees numerous times and has stood by while the Chief of Police has not done one GD thing about it!! These are FACTS and are not allegations and can be proven at the drop of a hat!!!

These are just a few and it has only been a little over two years!!

Thanks for that list...it helps. The thing on here that has me the most concerned is the sexual harrassment issue. If they aren't just allegations and can be proven then why haven't the women filed suit and named those involved with the harrassment and the cover up? It would seem something so egregious would have an attorney chomping at the bit. They shouldn't be worried about losing their jobs because they would win the law suit and get to keep their jobs as well as receive damages.

Oh they have reported it and it's been kept quite. The city manager has done his own harassing and don't forget that the mayor is an attorney. What happened to Joanne?

So they have filed an harrassment suit? That would be public knowledge...easy to find out no matter how quiet they tried to keep it...any news reporter should be able to dig it up.

Who is Joanne?

Joanne was the city accountant. City employees have been told they could have no contact with her. Bet she could tell you a few things about ole ace!

I have no idea what you are talking about....last time I checked, I was a law-abiding, tax-paying citizen who has the right to discuss an issue anonymously, just as you have.

I simply explained the role of a manager based on my own experience.

And based on my experience, the manager always gets a bad rap from those he has to reprimand.

In response to your other post of allegations, if he has used city equipment and city workers and didn't pay for it, that is wrong! If the present Mayor, covered it up, that is wrong!

If the sexual harassment is true, then the citizens of MH should stand up against this injustice and demand justice.

I read this on a post a while back but have never heard it outside of Topix.

I would love to have proof.....

I hope that the citizens of MH will do something about the injustice, it doesn't look like the city council is going to. I'm sure you could get proof. Please try!
