Re “gone up in flames” –
We were never married and we are not getting divorced. Wedisagree.Re $2500 bonus
One-time supplemental pay for excellent work by my deputy whoadministered the biggest general election (November 2012) and the biggest
unscheduled special election (March 2013) in Linn County’s history. At this morning’s
Board meeting, I recommended that the First Deputy Treasurer be considered for a one-
time supplemental payout for the work she’s been doing for the last several years toconvert the County’s tax system from one computer system
/application to another.Re outside the HR process
The HR process did not apply. The Purchasing Policy didapply and I followed it.Re paying him $40,000.00
The County paid Kelly Services
a temporary employmentagency. The temp received substantially less than $40K.Re not getting any work product
The iMaint application was being used by Facilities atthe time the Board took Facilities away from me. It was not being used and did notperform adequately before I hired the temp. The temp fixed it and made it usable.Re lengthy and pricey lawsuit
The lawsuit is lengthy because the Iowa Court system forcivil cases is underfunded and routine civil matters are not a priority. Pricey? I had toget an outside attorney to represent me in Miller v Board. That attorney is charging theCounty a discounted rate. The County Attorney went to the Board of Supervisors andtold them that his office could no longer represent the Office of Auditor because I wasasking other elected officials questions and they needed legal representation. (Why didthey need legal representation for my questions?) I did not ask for an additionalattorney
he was forced upon me. That said, my attorneys are doing a fine job at littleoverall cost. In fact, I have to wonder if the County could save tax dollars by contractingout its civil work? The County has three civil attorneys and a paralegal. Is there a lessexpensive way to do it?Re hefty raises
Yes, they did it and they got away with it.
Re appointed a “crony” –
Board should be laying off the Construction Manager on6/30/2013. Instead, they took Facilities away from me and gave it to the ConstructionManager/Facilities Manager. Cost to taxpayers in FY13/14 - $135K that could have beensaved. I was already doing the job at no additional cost. Seehttp://www.scribd.com/doc/136984765/Linn-County-employees-costing-100K-or-more
