This week Debbie Fox removed a Metro Animal Services staffer from doing animal rescues, angering even her closest allies within the agency.
Fox used the excuse that “the union” pushed her into moving the staffer back to the “business office” and summarily said rescues would need to be halted.
Unfortunately for Fox, someone from “the union” (speaking to me on the condition of anonymity, though I have emails to back it up) tells me they weren’t actively pushing anything at LMAS and didn’t make the request.
Imagine that. YET ANOTHER hack interim director (to be replaced tomorrow with another hack interim director) abdicating her duty and passing blame.
Way to go, Greg Fischer, you’ve done yet another stellar job. We expect nothing less out of Susan Pullen. And if her husband’s ability to work in government is any indication of hers? Haha, well, it’s possible that she could be worse than Gilles Meloche and Wayne Zelinsky.
Particularly if she continues the Fox effort of stopping rescues/adoptions. This, according to even the folks who hate me at LMAS, is contrary to the talking points Greg Fischer is pushing. And what the heck is with paying the Kentucky Humane Society $9,000 per month to “consult” on adoptions when LMAS can’t afford a part-time rescue coordinator and continually cuts its own staff on hours and pay?
Oh – and a related rumor/allegation we’re hearing all over the city: Ted Pullen was a Corradino Group VP, which means he is effectively an MSD consultant (planning to do work for MSD) while MSD is contracted for work for the city via Pullen’s office in Public Works. What the eff?
