Could director of “community building” (please, hold your laughter) Sadiqa Reynolds be part of the problem in Greg Fischer’s new administration?
We’ve reported for months her antics and attitude at Metro Animal Services. She’s directly responsible for LMAS and problems have only gotten worse since she took over.
So no one is surprised that FOX41 caught her lying:
City official refused to admit MAS employee’s suspension in June
A top-ranking official in Mayor Greg Fischer’s administration knew about the suspension of Jackie Gulbe but refused to acknowledge it when questioned last month by a WDRB reporter following a budget hearing on June 15.
The mayor’s spokesman, Chris Poynter, told WDRB News Saturday that Reynolds – in fact –knew about Gulbe’s suspension. When asked why the city was not forthcoming and why Reynolds would not acknowledge that when asked directly, Poynter said he could not say.
Gulbe was suspended June 3rd after a memo stated that she and another male companion put a dog in a suitcase and brought it to the Manslick shelter.
The dog was found in a tightly zipped suitcase in medical distress with a temperature of 104.
As director of community building, Reynolds would have known about the suspension because she oversees Metro Animal Services and six other departments, city officials confirmed.
Maybe it’s time for Greg to get a damn clue and start hiring people who can handle the responsibility of working in government?
Sadiqa may be a nice person but if she were working in the private sector? She’d have been let go by now for reasons involving LMAS alone. Maybe Chris Poynter’s are a sign that change is afoot.
