I understand the whole "paper trail" thing. Believe me, I do, but we are beyond that now.
In December I posted an article about the far from glowing annual evaluation that our Town Administrator, Shaun Suhoski had received from the selectmen. The evaluation came with a warning. Tardiness was a major issue in the evaluation, and was addressed when the evaluation was presented to Suhoski. Now, a month and a half later he has been suspended, with pay, for that major issue, tardiness.
This is the most basic piece of maturity one makes as they leave their teenage years. One learns to get their butt out of bed in the morning for class, or work, or fail the class, and look for another job. It is that simple. It's a learning thing like eating with utensils. When one does not catch on after a short time, and is still practicing the same poor behavior twenty years later, then there is either a physiological / psychological reason, a reason concerning family, or personal life we are unaware of, and not privy to, or simply it is because because they don't give a rats ass.
I want to believe it is anything other than the latter, however, if it were anything else, I think that the selectmen would be aware, and would have addressed it. The 5 day suspension proves that it is a matter that Suhoski is in control of, or maybe not.
Either way, looks like it will be a long year here in town. (sigh).
