STACY’S RESIGNATION LETTER.

October 9, 2019

Council,

I am submitting my resignation as the town manager.  As required by my contract, I am providing thirty days written advance notice of the effective date; that date is November 8, 2019.  As evidenced by the appointment last night of a disgruntled former employee whom I terminated for theft, Anita Rivers, the current Council does not have the best interests of the White Springs citizens at heart. 

Mayor Helen Miller forfeited her Council seat in October 2017 for Charter violations and was elected to office in April of 2018.  Since her return to Council, she has aimed to retaliate against me for notifying the Council in May of 2017 of her misdeeds. Over time, the hostility and retaliation has escalated and become untenable as the composition of the Council has changed.

I was hired to be a good steward of our taxpayer’s dollars and look out for the best interest of the community; I have always kept that idea at the forefront of my thinking.  It has become ever more challenging by the day as the Council does not support staff. We have dedicated hard-working employees, and their morale has suffered from the criticism of the Council.  I will miss working with them, and I hope that in the future the Council appreciates them and the value they bring to the Town of White Springs.

Sincerely,

Stacy Tebo

  1. IS SHE KIDDING? The town council does not have the best interest of White Springs citizens at heart? Miss Tebo you single handedly destroyed our fire department! We in effect have not had fire department for how long? That was you looking out for the best interest of the community? Mayor Miller was more than polite to you, as was the rest of the council. They simply required that you account for monies spent and that you do your job. That is the composition of the council that changed! No one is letting you get away with anything now. If your staff has low morale then that is a direct reflection of your ability to manage them. I am sure that you have been a total ray of sunshine since you have had to answer to the council and Mayor Miller. As for our new fire chief it is very clear that you blindsided the poor guy! It was obvious by the answers he gave when Mayor Miller informed him of the issues at hand. Was that another example of you being a good steward?
