Goldberg was a good administator over the year of her service. Man, I can't wait till Schiliro is going to be the new supervisor!

What a concept! You don't do your job. Your boss takes corrective action. You accuse your boss of harassment. No one investigates. They fire your boss. You continue to not do your job. Repeat for as many poor performing employees as necessary.

The town administration that has put her in power should have the power to take her out of power? As has been noticed by me over the years many people that vote in this town are vindictive against out of town people (residents that have not grown up here) that if elected do not seem to have a chance going forward. Example: Mr. Lombardi serving approx. 40 years and other town board members with large tenures who have been from this town have served with little editorial problems.

Am not fully understanding all what transpired. Would like to know more as what is legally possible.

What was the nature of Ms. Goldberg's contract? What were the provisions for letting go or \firing?\

All my life I've learned from my father - an attorney -- \documentation, documentation, documentation.\ I also had the experience of sitting and then leading a supervisory/governing committee with charge over firing employees. When incidents came up -- they were noted and discussed and filed for later action if warranted (or the file got thicker over time).

I understand privacy is appropriate but there should not be a witch hunt either. Who decides in the Town when an employee has not satisfactorily performed in a job? And are there not usually warnings?

For all the talk of running the town as a \business\ I can't help but think a business wouldn't operate this negligently.

Personally I only encountered Ms. Goldberg on one issue last Winter but she was helpful and seemed genuinely interested and wanted answers to my questions with a sincere interest.

Can't answer though whether Ms. Goldberg should be re-hired yet ...not until a full investigation occurs ...one that should have happened prior to the firing actually.
