Sir, this is really pedestrian and full of expectations of the worst possible outcome…My response “Why Now?” was in response to you explaining the past experiences with several previous managers and there were never any background checks.
I said ‘Why Now’ because it came across as a discriminatory racist gesture being there has never been an African American manager to my knowledge. I stand corrected if I am wrong. After you said “because it is time’, I replied ‘OK I think it is too’ knowing fully well, if you had not run the check, you were in the process. Now, how is that a lie?
Truth to be told on the night I was recommended in the town hall, you tried to make some crazy verbal pact requesting that you and I become “Co-Applicants” for the position. And, I quote you ” Now, you and i can become co-applicants I have all the grants and contracts.”
I couldn’t believe the statement and I have shared it with several people who need to know.
THANKS FOR CONFIRMING THE TRUTH. AT THAT POINT IN OUR TELEPHONE CONVERSATION YOU COULD HAVE COME CLEAN AND THE MATTER WOULD HAVE DROPPED. BUT NO YOU CHOSE TO MAKE IT A RACIST UTTERANCE. I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT I TOLD NICKII TODAY. IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING BLACK TO YOU AND HER. WHITE SPRINGS DOESN’T DESERVE A RACIST, EVEN A BLACK ONE, AS A TOWN OFFICIAL.
