Michelle Sutton's firing

Original post made by Judy Melvin, Menlo Park: Linfield Oaks, on Apr 29, 2013

It's been a few months since Michelle Sutton was fired from the Gymnastics program. I am worried that the City Manager and City Council have dropped the ball on this one and have failed to follow up after we demanded some answers. First, the City Manager claimed to have conducted an investigation and announced that he supported the decision to fire this teacher who is loved by all.

How much did this investigation cost the taxpayers and why would the City try and hide the outcome of the investigation from the residents and the City Council? Seems like they're just going to make the situation worse by trying to cover it up.

As I previously predicted, the bureaucrats will keep their heads down and wait until the whole thing blows over. Assuming, as usual, that peoples attention spans are that of gnats and this too will blow over and they won't have to actually deal with it. Seems people's attention spans may be longer in this case and they may actually have to DO something. God forbid.

To those of you with longer memories: keep up the pressure it's the only thing bureaucrats understand when putting their heads down and hiding doesn't work.

Keep their feet to the fire and you might actually get a true result as opposed to BS. Good luck.

If parents are still enrolling their kids in gymnastics programs, every dollar collected is a vote of confidence in the program and the way the city runs it. Similarly, the Almanac will continue to allow hateful anonymous posts on this forum until residents are willing to boycott and picket businesses that purchases ads on the forum. If you want to live in a sewer, one will be provided for you when you keep paying.
