Pam Tomlinson and her good friend Shirley Heath (who both perceive to be such good christian ladies) once were considered the biggest liars one could ever meet in the Staff at White Springs. But now we have another in our current manager Mr. Jones. That is why I do not believe in those that continually profess Christianity like for instance Arthur Natteal because many of them are nothing but shysters. At least Jones does not profess his religion, but he still acts holier than thou art.
You will recall Stacy Tebo who couldn’t hardly wait six months before looking for a job, it is obvious Pam Tomlinson likewise has not been happy working for the Town of White Springs. What Ms. Tomlinson did to Anita Rivers was beyond the pale and for Stacy Tebo to allow such discrimination shows how horrid these two women were.
Now we apparently have Tommie Jones blaming others for his inability to keep up with what he calls landmines and blames others for his lack of experience. Those are not real landmines that couldn’t be handled in short order it is just that you obviously do not have the work ethics and abilities to handle the job.
We warned the Council over and over that Pam Tomlinson was a problem but no one cared to listen. We even gave suggestions like these but were ignored. Walter McKenzie, who feels he knows more than God perhaps, has always ignored any suggestions because he knows it all in his opinion and boy can he talk and schmooze but never get anything accomplished.
If you have an unhappy employee, the obvious first step is to try and resolve the situation. In Jones case, we have a happy and great employee in Yvonne, but alas, he complains to others but will not have a good conversation with her other than to be hostile and point fingers apparently, and then lie by saying she was the one hostile. But, we all know that sometimes, it’s simply time for an employee to move on, because they want something that the Town can’t offer them. Pam Tomlinson has never had the education to be able to fulfill her duties and her handling of even clerical duties has much to be desired. But apparently she is hanging in there trying to get the last cent that she can before someone forces her to retire.
An employee who is unhappy will quickly drag others down with them. They are likely to show up late, miss meetings, mope around the office all day, and says negative things about the citizens or their coworkers. With this definition, it would appear Jones is the one who is unhappy because obviously he bit off more than he could chew.
With the manner in which people are treated at Town Hall, no wonder that it feels like dark heavy thick air that is trying to engulf you when walking into the building. It is the feeling of unhappiness and depression with all things negative expelling from these offices. It even takes minutes for Pam Tomlinson to respond to a client if the Admin is not there. She walks so slowly, that one hopes she will not die while she is enroute to the front desk because you do not wish to be the one giving the report.And with bars across the counter and a counter which could not be jumped, one could not resuscitate her if no one was around.
In addition, it is highly unlikely that an unhappy employee strives to excel at work. Pam has provided White Springs quite a disservice with her slow prodding, smoking most of the day and barely moving to do any work during the day job. Yet she would not allow anyone to attend classes other than herself because she knows even a moron would excel in the poor job Pam Tomlinson is doing. So she protects her job.
The Town has allowed these unhappy employees linger on the team.far too long. And it could be that our Town Council doesn’t have the experience to recognize a good employee from a bad employee, and that pertains to your management choices. But since you have been elected councilors by your constituents, it is time that you did what is right and handled your fiduciary duty and cleaned house on these poor employees with an experienced manager.
This is something the Griffins have stated for a long time and now only because a third party, Mr. Whitehead is now going through the books, is there a belief that we have been right all along. Who cares if Pam Tomlinson has been there for years. All it means is that there are more years to correct because she certainly is no genius when it comes to finance. But if you can’t see it, councilors, you need help yourselves and need to discuss this with our attorney because there is no hope for you.
The next time you hear Pam say how she is not happy and how exhausted she is, it is time you tell her that you feel it’s time she consider moving on. She’s younger than I am and acts about 20 years older…for God’s sake, we need someone who can finally understand accounting. We don’t need an employee who spends most of their time smoking and vaping.
Now Stacy Tebo stated that she went from an “A Player” into the “B Player” slot in DeBary and stated that it doesn’t happen unless someone or something has caused the fall and she blamed Dan Parrott. Yet while she was in White Springs and I do not recall her once becoming an A Player and she is barely a B Player. Don’t you just love these liars who blame everyone else for their problems. And now we havve another one. Gosh our Council Members love town managers who lie. It must be that they themselves lie so much they don’t know the difference.
Someone needs to have an in-person, one-on-one, direct and heart-felt conversation with Pam Tomlinson as to why she is so unhappy but is refusing to retire. It is likewise important to begin the conversation by sharing your observations of her recent behavior and asking why the situation seems to be getting worse daily. The problem is that no one ever checked her work previously and the CPA’s felt it was not their job, so therefore, there is no documentation but Pam was good at finding fault with others.
We need people who want to work for the Town of White Springs; whose duties which are assigned are welcomed and who wish to excel and succeed in their Government job. We do not need crabby unhappy people who would rather be somewhere else than at Town Hall in White Springs and that has been Pam Tomlinson for a very long time. Now we have Tommie Jones who apparently is not up for the Challenge and as such blames everyone else if something can’t get done and feels everyone should be doing his job….but wait, these are government jobs and if you want someone to do your jobs, then they should get $25 an hour.
