I here it is a ex troooper buddy friend of kims and his wife works in the courthouse. I can not find anywhere where this job was posted for any county or city or non county city employee to apply for, is this a violation or can someone shjarte information on this. Usually when a posistion is open there is a publishing for internal/external applicants to apply. How do we know the best person got the job if it was not offered to anyone
Can anyone name the 911 committee member sso we can reach out to them for answers
The E-911 Committee is appointed by the County Mayor, currently Rick Joiner. The Committee Members are:
Commissioner Andy Luton
Mayor Rick Joiner
Sheriff Deryk Wyatt
Chief Kim Wallace
EMS Director Greg Barrow
According to the E-911 website, www.scecd.com, the next meeting of the 911 Committee is September 15th at 6pm at City Hall located on the Calendar portion of the site. The meetings are open to the public, again according to the website. There is contact information on the site as well for some of the members and the Committee as a whole. Of course since many of the members are County Officials their individual contact information may be found on the Stewart County website, stewartcountygovernment.com, under the tabs labelled Elected Officials and Commissioners.
Then if you know what about the job that has alleged to have been given to a former trooper and friend of kims and spouse of courthouse employee with no posting to the employees or people of stewart county? I would have been interested in a $42000 job and may have had qualifications you never know. how about anyone else could you have used this job
So the county mayor appointed himself to the committe? Amazing
The County Mayor is not a voting member. He serves in an ex-officio capacity only as does the Sheriff.
thank you and you seem to know something about this commitee. what about the job that was given to the ex trooper/relative/friend of kim. was this posted for everyone to have a fair chance at this job
It was given to Mike Smothers so I was told. As far as I know it was never advertised or anything. I wonder what qualifies him for the job?
Mr Douglas why was this job not posted? Or if it was where? How did this man qualify for the job? Would it not have been fair to let others put their name in the hat?
This needs to be answered
a good ole boy job again. and yes i agree if it created a vacant position then there was a new job created.
Here we go. Dont stop...now that you know they broke the law keep pushing it till they do it correctly. the same person may get the job but at least they will know they must follow the law. thank you thank you thank you
We are watching how you handle the scandle/ a boycott could be in order
Time to call Geico
I spent over 12 years with the Los Angeles 911, and I would have applied for this position if I had known it was available
I was a 911 superviser in Montgomery County. I need work also. I could match my 911 experience with anyone. why was I not allowed a shot at this job
I am sending this to my senator and congressman and asking what they will do for me and so should everyone else.
Heres the joke. Rick joiner and Smoothers are good buddies. Mike didn't do his job when it was a part time position. He is in charge of the 911 map that's in dispatch and it's so out dated there are 100's of addresses that are not indicated on the map. If someone calls for help from one of these addresses response time is long because EMS/police/fire can not find it. Mike Smoothers isn't qualified as a part time employee and sure won't make a qualified full time $42,000 employee. But since is a good ol boy he got the job just as Clint Mathis did. Does everyone know Henry County doesn't have a full time EMA director but Stewart County does? Is it not weird Mr. Mathis's new $40,000 county vehicle is parked outside Rick Joiner's office 5 hours a day every week? Clint and Rick are old fire department buddies. Hey scratch my back buddy.
County Mayor Joiner was quoted in the SHT saying these are hard times. He asked county offices to cut thousands of dollars out of their budgets. Yet there are new positions being made. Yet again county employees insurance rates go up and another year without a raise but good old Mike Smoothers has a cushy job. Thanks so much elected officials for looking out for your employees and community.
shame shame shame
How is Steve Douglas the chairman of the 911 comitte, when the county insurance is written through his company. Who would he be looking out for
This is awesome. finally the good ole boys have to pay for their mistakes
Smothers not Smoothers
