It's humilating as a citizen of Lenoir City that her picture is on KnoxNews.com and every where else holding that mispelled sign looking like an idiot, and making Lenoir City look stupid!

Not to mention the fact that she keeps saying her son and husband were fired, and she was fired for asking questions about why her husband was fired.

First of all her son was NOT fired. He just never came back after her husband resigned.

Second....what questions would she have about why her husband was fired????? They must have HORRIBLE communication skills in their marriage so I'll try to do my best to explain...

Jill - You're husband sent an LCUB work crew to your house to do personal work for him on company time. Contrary to what you may believe, that is wrong. It is something that people get fired for here in the real world. I know it's hard for you to understand way up there on your high horse, but normal people down here beneath you don't do things like that and get away with it. Your husband was actually given an option to resign or be terminated and he chose resignation. That allowed you and him to enjoy all that hundreds of thousands of dollars in his retirement fund. Your son chosing to not go back to LCUB (probably out of embarassment) was a CHOICE, not a termination. As a City employee yourself, you continuously keeping trouble stirred up on a daily basis about your husbands RESIGNATION prevents you from doing your job to it's specifications by keeping your personal business out of your work place. Continuous behavior such as that caused you to lose your job as well.

Now I hope that answered all your questions, and you can now go and get the help and medication that you so desparately need.

You owe the entire city of Lenoir City an apology for the horrible representation of our city that you have displayed.
bless our hearts

The hiring requirements at Perks and Rejects must be low if her spelling is any indication.

So that's why the new hire is just as qualified?

Well said... She has been on meds but her mg should be bumped up since obviously its not working. Even though I have personally been attacked verbally and bashed by Jill I honestly hope she can put her pride aside and get medical help. Bipolar disorder is a real thing and not to be taken lightly. She is sick.... her family should seriously seek professional help before she destroys all of their lives..... all joking aside.3375

I love the way she was so angry about her personal information being given out and then spills her guts about her step-daughter. Can you say double standard. The step-daughter should have been left out of the mess and anything about her should be off limits, as well as the other kids. She thinks that only she is entitled to privacy. CRAZY

How did she manage to get the post removed? Didn't think she had anyone that cared enough to help her with that. Maybe it got removed to protect the kids involved

It's being said that LCUB workers have helped each other on company time for decades. That may be true but it must stop, and the Mayor has put his foot down and made a statement that it can't go on and I applaud him for it.

The mayor gets more favors than anyone!!..every Christmas LCUB puts up a city OWNED Christmas bell at his & Gil Morgans house, FREE OF CHARGE!
Half the employee's at LCUB & City are hand picked by the mayor.
Ready for Matt to come back and clean up this town.

Idk about anyone else but I think we should go old school like the 1700s and put her down town and everyone throw tomatoes at her and then hang and burn her ass..... But she would probably stink the town up from her burning flesh
