Cooper Written Reprimand...Let's break it down

Rick Outzen today posted a written reprimand of Brian Cooper regarding improper hiring and insubordination. http://ricksblog.biz/city-of-pensacola-treats-insubordination-differently/

First and foremost, as the Mayor likes to say, the written reprimand of Brian Cooper shows that Ed Sisson, as Forest Gump would say is "not a smart man".

Lets first break down the wording of this painfully written reprimand:

  • "chose to call names to our Mayor" Did he beckon the words to him?
  • "you were found to have completed the following undesirable behaviors"  Hate for them to be incomplete.
  • "publically"  Sisson publicly needs someone to review his work before issuing!
  • "are considered to be violations of insubordination"  How do you violate insubordination?
  • "The work your do"  Sisson, did your take English?
Ed, did Jose write this?  This is a serious document and it deserved better than this.  This written reprimand clearly makes Brian Cooper's disdain for you and the Mayor appear warranted.  Why get you involved with hiring?  You appear incompetent.





















Next lets look at the obvious inconsistencies with Cooper's treatment and Schmitt and Glover's treatment:

The reprimand says Cooper "hired staff without going through the proper protocol and procedure."

How about proper protocol and procedure for:

  • Rebecca McLellan
  • David Allen
  • Greg Redding
  • Rebecca Ferguson
  • Amy Workman
  • and on and on and on

Cooper had issues with improper hiring practices before but was not given a written reprimand for them.  He was reprimanded in writing for continued hiring issues.

Sisson had waived panel interviews with Tibbett to be hired, and NO adverse consequences for him.

Glover and Schmitt had never had hiring issues before, but failed to hold panel interviews and were fired.

Seems consistent doesn't it?

Cooper cussed out the Mayor and received a written reprimand.

Schmitt and Glover respected the instructions of Olson to have no discussion with anyone at the City during the investigation and were fired.

Seems consistent doesn't it?

Cooper was given a written reprimand for going outside the "Chain of Command".

Schmitt and Glover were fired for enforcing the "Chain of Command"

Seems consistent doesn't it?

The evidence against Sisson and Olson will just continue to mount!

Omg! "Stupid is as stupid does, that's what mom used to say". Whew! This just gets more ridiculous by the day. Keep up the good work Maren and Sisson needs Hooked on Phonics in the worst way!!!

Thank you Maren and Rick for doing this research proving that the Chiefs were targeted and un-justly fired by the Hayward Administration.

Your research will help their lawsuit as well as future law suits for employees that were wrongfully terminated.

This lawsuit is going to be a "Game-Changer" for true change within the City and give hope to the hard working employees that do their job.

Thank you to both of you.

Sisson represents a whole new level of stupidity. There is no way to explain their way out of this one. Everything from changing the HR Manual the day the Chiefs were put on leave to this reprimand which proves retaliation was the motive all along shows they were absolutely targeted. I'll bet there's a lot of scrambling going on at city hall today. Waving this reprimand in front of a jury should be very compelling. The only question remaining in my mind is how many people were complicit in this conspiracy?

Dang Ed SHRM-SCP, SPHR, CEBS, RPA, GBA, DMB-AS, GOB, POC, HIJKLMNOP!!! Sounds like a bunch of BS to me...Your certifications must not require the ability to write a legible sentence. You are extremely bad at your job.

You may want to check into the reasons why Mr. Cooper was fired from the University of Alabama at Birmingham as the Director of Recreational Sports.

Let's remember -- the mayor not only permits this idiocy, he promotes it. He picked Sisson. He picked Olson. He thinks they do good work -- just look at the pay increases he gives them. The mayor is the one to blame for this whole fiasco. He has destroyed the lives of many city employees by firing them without cause. He replaced highly qualified staff with people like Sisson and Olson. Pensacola made a huge mistake by replacing the council/manager form of government with a strong mayor.

ROFLMBO!!! The DMB-AS must be short for Dumb @$$...Not being able to hide evidence and getting caught red handed every time is one thing, but being paid nearly $100K per year without the ability to write or spell is unbelievable.

More proof that the investigation was a joke and Ed Sisson is an unqualified scum bag. I can't wait until this goes before a judge or a jury. Ashton and Olson are also frauds.
