MARSHALL, IL. (ECWd) -
As I alluded to in the previous article on the most recent resignation of Charity Murphy, the director of the park district, we believe this to be simply another temper tantrum in order to get a pay raise, more free stuff, or to generally run rough-shod over the Park Commissioners.
After a lengthy executive session, the commissioners voted 5-2 against accepting her resignation.
What does this mean?
- First, the resignation does not have to be accepted to be valid, so technically she has still resigned with an end date of March 31, and,
- Second, she can simply refuse to work after March 31 (the end date on her resignation), or,
- Third, the board can bend the taxpayers over again and give her more money to keep "working", or,
- Fourth, bend the taxpayers over again and give her a 4 year contract if they think they will lose majority in the April election - just for spite
edited: Of course they could always simply terminate her employment...
