Following a week in which two Town of Gainesville constitution officers resigned and the mayor questioned a 3rd to resign, Town Commissioner Desmon Duncan-Walker has included an agenda item to the Town Commission’s September 16 Specific Meeting: “Termination of Town Manager Contract.”

Duncan-Walker made a movement to terminate Feldman’s deal at the August 23 Special Town Commission assembly, but the motion died for deficiency of a second. Feldman narrowly survived a November 24, 2020, assembly that was termed to discuss a report that he experienced retaliated against an personnel, only since Commissioner Reina Saco was prepared with a motion to need a “professional enhancement plan.” Commissioner Gail Johnson resigned on August 23, expressing that she continues to “remain concerned about the retention of the Metropolis Supervisor.” Johnson’s resignation is not productive until finally September 30, so she will be in a position to vote at Monday’s conference.

On prime of the modern resignations of Town Lawyer Nicolle Shalley and Metropolis Clerk Omichele Gainey and the asked for resignation of GRU Typical Supervisor Ed Bielarski, the Director of Fairness and Inclusion Teneeshia Marshall resigned in early May possibly. It seems that the only charter officer who is currently secure in her job is Metropolis Auditor Ginger Bigbie.
