Joe Griffin also applied in the event there were no certified applicants but his actual intent was to assist anyone else that wished to have a ticket and would have to re-take his certification since it had been eight years. He knew when he applied because of the Hate the Town Manager had for him, there would not be a snowball’s chance of being hired but verbally, he told others in the area he would assist them in getting the certificate.
The Town of White Springs is very lucky to have received two individuals with certifications for Water and Wastewater. In reviewing Gregor R. St. John, one can see how his experience transformed from starting with a GED to the operations, maintenance and construction of water and wastewater utilities (which would be a great asset for our upcoming revitalization of our utilities. And it appears that he would have far more experience than the operator who is leaving that would assist our Town Greatly. Sadly, however, the Gang and Stacy Tebo do not pick the best of the best as their standard operating procedures. We’ll see if they take someone who may be the best of all candidates.
