Action Alert: less than 24 hours for Hillsborough voters to tell commissioners to dump Pat Bean
By Chris Ingram
Yesterday’s column focused on the mess at the Hillsborough County BOCC and the whole Pat Bean fiasco. Bean and some commissioners are looking to give Bean a golden parachute at the expense of county taxpayers.
The BOCC plans to vote on this matter at tomorrow’s meeting. Concerned taxpayers are urged to take a few minutes to call or e-mail commissioners and tell them to fire Pat Bean with cause and force Bean to prove in a court of law why she shouldn’t have been fired for cause. She’ll have a hard time proving that considering she inappropriately/unethically/potentially illegally gave herself a pay raise last year without BOCC approval and with that little e-mail snooping allegation still lingering.
Bean is entitled to little more than a stern message to not let the door hit her on her rear end on her way out. Nothing else.
You can reach the BOCC by calling: Ken Hagan: 272-5452; Rose Ferlita: 272-5470; Kevin White: 272-5720; Al Higginbothom: 272-5740; Jim Norman: 272-5725; Kevin Beckner: 272-5730. Or visit the BOCC website to send them an e-mail.
Commissioner Mark Sharpe who is the only commissioner who has shown leadership and consistency of position on this issue and would no doubt appreciate your calls of appreciation. His office number is: 272-5735.
