I agree with fair pay in the workplace for men and woman alike and I don't know her specific job responsibilities, however, I think Mr. Turner should have dealt with this with the board before this happened. However before Walla Walla voted him in this position they knew how he operated and they they still made the active choice to vote him in as sheriff again. I personally voted against him as I departed Walla Walla for good. Hopefully there will be smarter voters the next time he runs for office but until then you got what you voted for or didn't vote at all.
I don't have much to say since I am no longer a resident of Walla Walla County nor voting there but one thing. Mike Humphreys was a man of honor and respect. Mike Humphreys is dead why do we need to bring him up when he can't defend himself. His wife does not need to see this. It seems to me that Mike and Carole were your friends and now you proclaim victory for John Turner and step on your friends. Wow! If I was in charge I would pick a interim Sheriff and start over because the mud slinging is too much.
Well how you are reading between the lines are not right. There is a lot more going on that this article points out and it is not my place to say one way or the other. I have worked there with those faculty for plenty of years and they are good people and are being treated not in a good fashion. No one said he punches or slaps or hits anyone; no one said that.
I don't think any one is asking for him to be touchy feely just not a bully and angry man. Come to the table calmly and work out the issues. There is a lot more about this story that isn't being told and being withheld. It's great if you are a Vocational Instructor but the Arts and Sciences are lacking a bit and it isn't just a bunch of disgruntled faculty. These are the instructors we are entrusting our student body that wants to transfer to a four year school to. Academics is poorly supported and always takes the cuts. Not good.
I believe the 32 of 37 faculty represent the Arts and Sciences Faculty only NOT the faculty as a whole. Of course the vocational side isn't interested because they are reaping great rewards it is the instructors who teach the basics a student needs to go on to a four year school. The ones prepping our students for WSU, UW, Eastern, etc. that make up at least 1/2 of the FTE's of that college.
Good story Mr. Diaz. I'm the one Admin. Assist that the Arts and Sciences Dean had. I would say it is not a correct statement to say the Dean had an Admin. Assist. because they would never reallocate the Dean's Secretary to an Admin. assignment. I have since retired from WWCC and relocated but I did the work for at least two people during my time in that office; 32 years. I was disappointed that although the faculty had a very memorable retirement event for me that after 32 years our president could not have taken time out of his schedule to walk over and thank me for my service or even send a good luck note. to me that is a disgrace to him. His VP of Instruction did attend the party and extend her good wishes however, my last week at the college she didn't bother to come by and wish me well at all. Again a disgrace. I have many friends at the college but somewhere the treatment of human beings were lost to dollars and cents. It is nice to be retired from that environment.
Bravo to the UB for standing up to their opinion. Everyone has a right to their own opinion and although they knew they were going to take haters mail they stuck to their guns.
and you are judgmental !
I don't have to be at the sheriff's office to see the disrespect that is paid to Hispanics in this town and for your information I have not declared my vote to Cooper so don't you fret about that.
Really why in the world would Cooper want a receptionist job. With your education it is probably a stepping stone for you. Your letter sucks madam.
