Township babysitting is ridiculous

To Coloma Township elected officials: Are you kidding me? You trustees have told an employee to log all letters and phone calls. Ridiculous.

This isn’t fifth grade, folks. [Supervisor Debra] Burke is an adult, I’m guessing 50-plus years, and you have to babysit her. Make that ridiculous.

And what a predicament that puts an employee in. She is supposed to tail her boss and report back to you. Talk about a hostile work environment for the poor employee, who probably couldn’t keep up with Burke during a regular day. 

I applaud the fact that you are trying to correct this problem and, frankly, I don’t have a solution. This problem has been going on for years. Now it has elevated to the point of arrogance and what appears, from reading SVM, thumbing a nose at all the taxpayers in Coloma Township.

My opinion, and that of everyone I have talked to, is Burke needs to pay back the money and resign. Please don’t leave any loopholes for any future shortages for which she may be accountable.
