The Daytona Beach News-Journal printed confirmation of what we saw happening to one of our former deputy city managers but were never able to prove.
From their Saturday, April 25, 2015 edition:
Shang explained she had gotten into a clash with her boss, the city manager, when she answered a City Council question about the cost of a ballpark.
“I was asked a question during a council meeting. I answered honestly, and it contradicted her and it embarrassed her,” Shang said.
She was placed on administrative leave, given a severance package and ultimately the manager left and Shang’s position was eliminated.
Shame on our former city manager and city council.
We deserve better
