We really enjoyed the food and seeing many of our former employee friends. The atmosphere was pleasent.
We thought the city manager was rather raunchy on many of his comments and so called jokes. It was very distasteful. Shame on you John Godwin. We find you very vulgar.

Did he tell any jokes about biting his wife's finger during a fight? Or was it she bit his?

We also attended the City dinner last night. This was the first time we had seen the city manager. We were not at all impressed. His comments were very crude and not necessary, especially in such a large crowd.

Tell us what some of what he said and let us decide to, we also lean towards the dislikeness of him.

the silence is deafening
denial is everywhere
disbelief is prevalent too - the target fears that no-one will believe them and even the target eventually questions their belief that this is happening, especially as the bully persistently and plausibly denies everything
bullies are encouraged and rewarded, often by promotion
cases that are settled are subject to gagging clauses
employers network with each other, sometimes discussing cases and people at fraternal meetings
in many cases unions are unhelpful; in some cases the union is part of the problem
the target doesn't want to have "stress" on their health record
the target doesn't want to get others into trouble and is reluctant to initiate a grievance against a fellow human being
the target naively believes that the system is there to protect them and will work for them (it isn't and it doesn't)
the target naively believes that their loyalty and good service record will stand them in good stead (it won't and the employer is likely to ignore and dismiss it)
the target naively believes that Human Resources and personnel are there to protect employees (they're not, click here for the reasons why)
grievance procedures are notoriously useless for dealing with bullying, as the manager, with whom the grievance is normally conducted, is often the bully - or is supporting the bully, either by colluding (active support), or by refusing and failing to deal with the bully (passive support)
even if another manager handles the grievance, he or she is usually connected with the bully in some way
bullying is a betrayal; the target trusted and depended on the integrity of another (eg manager) and that person betrayed them; the target fears and anticipates that when they report the bullying, they will be betrayed again (they often are)
those in authority did nothing to prevent the bullying while it was happening, nor did they do anything subsequently; very often it is the person in the position of authority who is the bully; trust in authority is low, with justification
bullying is a form of psychological rape because of its intrusive and violational nature
the target felt and continues to feel guilty about what happened, having been encouraged by the bully to believe they were responsible
the target may have been encouraged to withdraw from legal action by the bully feigning victimhood and playing on their target's forgiving chord and manipulating other people's sympathies
bullying causes Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and any thought, memory or reminder of the bullying immediately results in the sufferer experiencing the following PTSD DSM-IV diagnostic criteria:
B4. intense psychological distress at exposure to internal or external cues that symbolise or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event
B5. physiological reactivity on exposure to internal or external cues that symbolise or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event

as well as

C1. efforts to avoid thoughts, feelings or conversations associated with the trauma

Whatever the first 11 posts were, I don't know anything about.

The rest is just defensive posting. I can't speak for anyone else, but I smoked pot once as a teen and fell asleep and never tried it again. I didn't and don't use medications illegal or otherwise other than OTC.

Nyquil is as hard as I go. But I do have a gun for protection, and a taser, and pepper spray.

So far the pepper spray is all I have used, but I have a back up plan for all of it.

According to the liberal rubbish anyway. Geeze.

The person that said that does not understand what that sort of crime is all about. It's about power and control.

Someone pissing their pants would turn those kinds of people on because they thrive on fear.

Period blood, they would be bragging that they made someone bleed. Whatever person was that made those comments was totally clueless about the nature of that crime.

I too attended the banquet with my spouse, who is retired and long time employee. I was appalled and embarrassed. Shame on you John Godwin. You were unprofessionl, crude, disrespectful and degrading to the employees. Councilwomen Lancaster and Drake were also at the banquet. I hope they take action against the city manager's behavior. For many years city employees have been trained not to disrespect each other, not to discriminate based on race or gender and to certainly not offend their co-workers.

Can someone say exactly what the jackass did instead of being so vague? What did he say? What was crude and disrespectful? Youtube maybe?

I would not repeat what I heard because of how disrespectful it would be to the employee who was not present.
