Check out this week’s LEO Weekly for more details on the resignation of Wayne Zelinsky, the now-former director of Louisville Metro Animal Services:
Fischer confirmed the extra-governmental business, Derby City VIP, was the topic of a conversation he had with Zelinsky that led to the outgoing director’s resignation less than 24 hours after news of it first appeared on The Ville Voice blog.
“We advised Wayne … that we were aware of a website that he had up and running, and we discussed that with him, and he came in this morning and resigned,” Fischer said on Feb. 2. “The point is that he is running an operation outside of what his normal, day-to-day operation is. We just brought it to his attention, and we told him we need to discuss it with him, and he decided to resign.”
“The most important thing is to help these animals and keep the public safe,” she says. “To me, it was asinine to just cut (us) off like that” after speaking publicly about the agency’s mismanagement, which she feels should have been the cause for Zelinsky’s resignation, as opposed to “a little T&A”
