Kenley, NC, has probably gotten more press in the last month than it has seen in its entire existence.
The buzz about the city started in July when the entire police force and several city clerks resigned.
They all claimed the same thing… new town manager Justine Jones had created a hostile work environment and they could not stay there.
After the entire PD quit, the Kenley City Council started to investigate the claims that had been made.
Jones had been the unanimous pick of the City Council, beating out 30 other candidates for the position.
When the investigation was concluded, they found no evidence of a hostile work environment, but they still did not like what they found, so Jones was terminated.
Kenley Mayor Tooie Hales stated that the council voted 3-2 to relieve Jones of her duties.
Hales stated, “Our decision to terminate the contract is not solely based on the investigation, but there are a lot of other factors, and we have to look for the best way to move forward for the town.”
Let’s start a pool… how long before Jones files a wrongful termination lawsuit against the city?
