I guess when it comes to Stacy Tebo, we can wish and wish and wish that she was no longer our Town Manager. And obviously she wishes she would not be our Town Manager either. We are just the wrong fit. But what good would it do to complain when she is in the good graces of Bullard, Brown and Lofton who will do anything to keep her. That is because it takes four votes under the charter and her contract to eliminate a Town Manager but it only takes three to remove a councilor who the citizens elect.
We know that if we could just find her a job in the DeBary area; maybe even a Chamber of Commerce job which is government related also, that Stacy Tebo would leave in a heartbeat. Because she is hiding so many little dirty secrets in White Springs, there is no chance of terminating her employment without her going to FDLE or the Feds , so let’s be on the look- out and find her a new job.
In Stacy Tebo’s cover letter addressed to the City of Orange City, she referenced her time at White Springs as follows:
“Since September of 2015, I have been employed as the town manager for the Town of White Springs in North Florida. I work there during the week and return to Orange City on the weekends. My son is graduating from University High School later this month, so Orange City is still my home. White Springs is a small organization and I wear many hats. I oversee all aspects of town services so the work is never ending. However, I prefer being a city clerk over being a town manager. I’m also quite homesick and would like to return to Orange City full-time. I would love to meet with you and discuss the knowledge and experience I could bring to your organization. I would also appreciate the opportunity to explain the reason for my exit from the City of DeBary”.
It is said that Managers are born and in reviewing what happened at DeBary, one can see where Stacy was FOLLOWING the Assistant Town Manager who lost her job before Stacy was fired, wishing to take down Dan Parrott. If Stacy had stayed in DeBary and had not taken a public records suit and an EEOC suit, she would have been in her element and making over $70,000. She obviously has the talent and experience to be a City Clerk as long as she does not have to lead. And not all of us can be leaders and an employer may say, she would be a great follower, and one who could do their job so any Manager could delegate tasks to Ms. Tebo.
Telling a dynamic manager that you are “homesick” might not set well either. Lately there has emerged a clearer sense of what homesickness is – a distinct adjustment disorder with identifiable symptoms – and what causes it. Josh Klapow, a clinical psychologist and associate professor at the University of Alabama’s School of Public Health stated “You’re not literally just missing your house. You’re missing what’s normal, what is routine, the larger sense of social space, because those are the things that help us survive,” . It’s just your emotions and mind telling you you’re out of your element.” And that one misses the security and love of those who have been around them.
In any event, many of her prior court cases and opinions on the blog have been removed. And I tested it with Google and they are no longer there. Maybe this will give opportunity for Ms. Tebo to find another job and that would be great for another reason. Unfortunately everything she has done in DeBary including her court cases are all public record. But we hope she can spin a tale about the entire event and end up on her feet.
Helen Miller who Stacy hates actually was the councilor who fought for Stacy’s request to get 13 weeks of severance in the event Stacy would be terminated. No good deed goes unpunished Helen. We see what Thanks you received from Stacy. Therefore, what Dennis Price said in his letters to the editors is absolutely correct. They are all jealous of Helen Miller because Helen Miller has always been in the limelight.
Well maybe Helen Miller could give Stacy Tebo a great letter of recommendation too. LOL Anything to get the young lady back near her Orange City Home.
