IN PASADENA, FIRING “WITHOUT CAUSE” GET’S YOU THE LOTTERY, THANKS TO CITY MANAGER MICHAEL BECK!
According to the Pasadena Star News the two fired employees City of Pasadena’s Public Works Director Siobhan Foster and Finance Directory Andrew Green will cost the taxpayers $275,000.00 to make them go away. In what world does a “fired” employee get a lottery win with reference to a payout? Only in the “public sector,” this my friends, would never happen in the “private sector.” Then what usually seems to happen, is that these two people will be picked up or recycled by other cities to implement the same schemes until they are outed once again. Remember City of Pasadena, you lost $6.4 million in taxpayer monies that may never be recovered due to the oversight of Siobhan Foster, Andrew Green and City Manager Michael Beck.
