By now we all know that Greg Fischer has no common sense. We know that even the prominent family that backs him is slowly moving away from him because of it. And we know even more that people like David Jones and the rest of the powers that be are pressuring him over his decision to allow Sadiqa Reynolds to run his ship.
After the way the woman has handled Metro Animal Services, we’re not surprised. We know she’s the get in your face and yell kind of hot shot. We know how she treats people she perceives as less important than her.
Basically, this woman raises show rabbits and sometimes sells them in J-town. An animal control officer told her that it was illegal to do so. Justin Scally of Metro Animal Services tells her she’s a dealer and needs a $125 license – but he’s unfamiliar with specific ordinances and doesn’t adequately explain to her. Other LMAS staffers tell her she can’t get a license. He’s no help and tells her to call the mayor’s office. The mayor’s office sticks her with Sadiqa Reynolds – who doesn’t return calls for three weeks.
When Miss Sadiqa does call her back? Well, here’s how it’s relayed to us:
I complained to the mayors office, they hooked me up with Mrs. Reynolds who did finally return my 3rd call to her and she wouldn’t even let me finish my sentences. She kept interupting me and after smiling it off a few times I got smart and acted like I didn’t hear her interupting and just tried to finish my sentence, so she starts repeating maam, maam, maam, maam over top of me and told her assistant there must be something wrong with the phone. I told my family (hubby and 2 kids) who had been listening since I was using the speaker phone while driving that she must think she’s really important since she has the right to control the conversation. She wanted to know where in the ordinance it says that rabbits are not required to have a license to sell. I had to email her that, thought it would be best to email since she can’t take turns talking.
Sounds familiar, we know.
We couldn’t give a flip one way or the other about whether a license to deal is required to sell rabbits. But we do give a flip about the way Sadiqa Reynolds continues to treat people. That’s some real compassion.
Greg Fischer ought to stop parading around for photo shoots and pay attention to the way the woman behaves on the taxpayer’s dime.
