Sandy Miller’s Statement: February 5, 2013
I have just read the Council’s statement.I respect the right of the Council to make a change in its City Manager even while I wonder about the process they followed. I had hoped for an amicable and professional parting of the ways.
While City Councilors acknowledged by their vote last evening that they did not have just cause to dismiss me, I am saddened that they feel a need to justify their action (and the costs thereof to the taxpayers of South Burlington) by blaming me for the Council’s own decisions, actions, policies and statements over the past two years. The Council’s statement “explaining” its decision to terminate is defamatory and damaging to my professional reputation. It also speaks to how very difficult it has been for me and members of my staff to work with this Council.
The statement issued by the Council is a great disappointment to me.
