Post 5 of 6: The Potted Plant Forgets to Do Her Job

Rebecca McLellan was tasked with assembling information for Haywards 7654321 propaganda on what has been done in each district.  The problem is the potted plant doesn't actually do her job but merely forward responses to Cosson.

Cosson calls her out on it.  Yes, Derek has a sweet no bid contract, but dang, he has to do at least two jobs:
  • Write speeches and releases for the Mayor and
  • do the job of the City's newest "leader"
Just the sort of person we need as the Airport Marketing Manager!  She is ready to go!

You are missing the whole point of putting this in the Rebecca column… the point was that you were supposed to receive these responses, combine them into one list, compare that list to what we asked for, follow up on anything that’s missing, and THEN give it to me. LOL.

So not only is Rebecca McLellan not doing anything related to her job description of “Airport Marketing Manager,” but Derek Cosson is not doing anything related to “Technology Resources” either. It also looks like Helen Gibson isn’t working on the betterment of neighborhoods. She is spending her time making checklists of things that make Hayward look good, whether he had anything to do with them or not.

All three of these city employees (and a lot more!) are collecting a city salary to work on Hayward’s re-election campaign, or perhaps his dream of taking over a nearby galaxy. He has turned city employees into his personal workforce, and plundered the city’s treasury to enrich his personal friends.

It’s your tax money, folks!

Currently trending on Dick's Blog....The city wins award for excellent budget presentation.

This is just too funny. Cities finances are a mess but at least they know how to put lipstick on that pig and make it look great enough to win an award. Perception is everything.

When was Cossen let go from the city? Some of these emails are dated March 18...I thought he had been let go by then but yet I see him doing his magic...

Big hair is a bumbling idiot. Im surprised she can find her way to work each morning without the help of Derek Cosson.

Why is the "IT" guy working on something like this? Shouldn't he be rebooting hard drives?

Cosson is no longer a salaried city employee. Technically, he is now a "consultant" working out of his house but in actuality doing exactly what he did as a city employee and making more money doing so. His escapades on Dick's Blog became too hot of an issue for Hayward to allow him to hang around City Hall.

You bring up a good point, however. Cosson is still using his old city email and signing off as Derek Cosson, Technology Resources, City of Pensacola. This is quite illegal, but when has "legal" ever been an issue with Hayward & Gang.
