I wish I could. You will have to find that former UW Director and ask her yourself. Her surname is a color that rhymes with 'clown' if she hasn't remarried by now.(what a coincidence!)

ALLEGEDLY, the generous salary, Don Carbone's free van, the credit card to buy gas and other benefits UW gave her weren't enough to make her sweet Mississippi ass stay. She couldn't take what came her way at the hands of one person and left.

ALLEGEDLY the subject of this commentary was the main reason she booked. Allegedly, there might have been nastiness, pettiness, and other generally poor social behavior that led her to up and quit.

By pure chance, I was close enough where I had a unique window to watch it unfold. I got to see quite a bit more about the internal machinations of UW, it's board and how it operates on a daily basis... So much so, that it caused me to form a negative opinion about them. So much so, when asked to give to UW at work, I decline but tell my boss to send the same payroll deduction to Children's Miracle Network so as not to be perceived as uncharitable.

I came away with the conclusion that it was a hoidy-toidy who-is-who hobby-club with mostly wealthy people sticking their fingers into a pie they should leave alone (too many cooks ... well, you know). And again, ALLEGEDLY somebody thought she knew more than the UW director and tried to tell her how to run things.

If you have to tell people how to run something, you might as well do it yourself.

Musical chairs later, look. Some people seem to notice a malingering odor. Hmmm. Wonder why? Must be them, not her!

I think you mean Utica Community Action, not UW. Until now, UW has never had a female executive director.

Thanks for hijacking my name, New Hartford Tragg.

About the executive director of United Way never being female until now, you are incorrect. You are either new on the scene or have a short memory.

In the mid 1990s there was a nice, sweet, southern-style hospitality girl from Mississippi that was the director. Her last name was the same as the subject of this thread. She was, simply put, a real nice lady.

ALLEGEDLY, somebody was nasty to her. Allegedly I saw some of it. Allegedly too much, in fact.

Flash forward: Seems somebody else has ALLEGEDLY experienced similar treatment from the same person.

Where is Hamilton Burger when I need him?

The point is.....the Y sucks with her there....believe me I have been there and seen her in action...the way she treats her staff is wrong....she talks down to them!! There is someone responsible for putting her in the Y....she is now a former board member....way to go on that one Big E!!!!!

You cannot give a colored person a job with authority - it is a recipe for disaster. Look at the president - he has spent more money than the LAST 10 PRESIDENTS COMBINED and now our children ultimately have to pay that off. Get rid of her - get rid of him.
