Wonders never cease. Toledo, Ohio and Lucas County, Ohio are now the location of another one of the Great Wonders of the World -- The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority and The Money Tree.
Apparently, James Hartung has found the secret of growing and harvesting the ever-elusive "money tree" and has an entire orchard of money trees. At least it seems that way after I read "Hartung Needs to Go-Far Away from us!"
I cannot help but wonder what other employer or employing organization would voluntarily pay tens of thousands of dollars to a departing employee when the employer has absolutely no contractual or legal obligation to do so. How does James Hartung and the public-tax-supported Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority get away with this type of thing?
If it were an elected official doing this crap of giving away thousands upon thousands of dollars for work not performed, the elected official would never get re-elected, or that type of elected official might even be recalled from office.
Hey, that gives me an idea. Maybe, we should re-examine the elected officials responsible for making the public appointments of individuals to the Board of Directors of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority.
If there aren't any changes forthcoming in the operations of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, its Board, and its CEO James Hartung, maybe we need to make changes in the elected officials who make the appointments of the individuals to the Board of the Port Authority.
Rather than repeating the whole story in this entry, I suggest you read all the different embedded links that you will find once you read "Hartung Needs to Go-Far Away from us!"
