If anybody in pilot mountain wanted to get elected to the town council they won't have a problem in 2015. The mayor and council will be history after the taxes,water bills,and random fees go through the roof.

The young employees at Pilot Mountain won't get fired, they will just wish they had. Now the 50ish workers better start looking for a job now.
The ones in their 60s might as well start packing their crap tomorrow.She won't be stupid enough to bring up age she'll just watch every move they make and hire her friends to work under them til they have something to blame them with.

She will never move to that little town. It is way too small for her and anyways she knows after she get through raising them taxes and water bills it be way to expensive a place to live. I thinks mayor Earl wantn to get in them pants. Well honey they plenty of room because that aint much of a ass in the way.

She had better move up there, I WANT HER OUT OF MY HOUSE. You may think she is all organized, micro managing at work, but let me say she is no housekeeper. She has never had time to clean or take care of how the home looks, sh!!tt everywhere. Raggity a$$ App flag hanging on front porch is ripped, moldy and teethered, hope she takes it with all her other junk. Back yard full of her dog poop, think she would have learned how to turn the hose on and water it into the grass so it dont smell, not her. Between the cig butts and red bull cans on the back patio, you would think she is collecting them. Just a mess, but I pray for relief soon.

Hey Pilot Mountain, better go ahead put them houses on the market before Ms Reid shows up.Going be awful hard to get rid of it once the tax rates double. Hope the mayor is renting, probably won't get elected another term.It going get real uncomfortable for him after the new manager start penalizing all the senior citizens.

Well did Amanda Reid fire anyone on her first day. This is the same person that hired someone on her last day at Marshville.

Heard the new manager was disappointed the local Wilco didnt have any Red Bull. Manager said he would start to stock it for her. She guaranteed him that she would buy 2 cases minimum per week. Saw the girl riding by my shop with her leg all cocked up, cig in mouth and Red Bull in hand. Marshville residents warned us and we need to watch this girl.

Just wondered if the Pilot Mountain Mayor has been impeached yet? I bet he will wish he spent that money on a background check pretty soon.

This is what Pilot has to look forward to with the skinny new town manager.
1. Very confrontational and does not know how to speak to staff members in a respectable manner. Lacks all communication skills.
2. No respect for anyone elses opinion. If not her idea, then she is not interested to listen.
3. Has issues with older personnel. Discriminatory towards people over 50 years of age. Fired one and forced one into retirement within 6 months of her employment in Marshville. Total of 5 employees gone under her reign of terror of less than 17 months.
4. Discriminates against overweight employees.
5. Frequently drops the "F" bomb and "G-D" in open conversation.
6. Possibly could be atheist, as Christmas is not considered a holiday in her world.
7. Very disrespectful towards office staff, will rummage through others desk after hours and has even rearranged department heads desk and drawers without thier knowledge, only for them to arrive to work and find all thier materials had been re-arranged. Everything must be arranged "her" way.
8. Feels raises should be awarded to those employees that are loyal to her, not on performance or longevity.
9. Will choose to single out employees and exploit that persons weaknesses. Often belittleing them in the presence of fellow employees.
10. Will forbid employees from speaking to council members during thier employment. She wants to keep any issues from getting to thier attention. Has even went as far to tell employees to which other employees they could speak with.
11. Drinks Red Bull and smokes ciggarettes continuously throughout the day and stays "wired" all day. Has same effects of a drug called speed.
12. Has no consideration for town citizens, as she "doesnt work for them", she works for the council, yet doesnt listen to thier wishes either.
13. When asked a question will never give an immediate answer, always will need time to research, even if she already knows answer.
14. Talks in circles when confronted about anything. Sure sign of a person that lies.
15. Has two different sets of personnel policies, one for her chosen employees and one for the others.
16. Look up the word narcicist and it may have her photo next to it.
