FLORESVILLE (revised) -- In a move that caught many by surprise, Floresville City Manager Andy Joslin, acting on behalf of several members of city staff, filed a formal complaint against Councilman Jim Miller during a Feb. 25 special meeting of the Floresville City Council.

The complaint identified several complainants, including Floresville Economic Development Corp. members David Strozier and Jason Talley; 4A Vice President Melissa Popham; Cyndi Nichols with the city’s permits office; Comptroller Lara Feagins; and City Secretary Sherry Pollok.

Although the complaint alleged Miller created a hostile work environment and participated in unethical practices, Joslin did not identify any specific event or set of events in his statement to the council. None of the complainants had submitted a written statement as of the meeting; Joslin, however, said they were willing to do so.

Also on the agenda for the council were the make up of the Audit Committee and its functions, as well as procedural issues regarding contact between the city’s elected officials and professional service providers. Following the council meeting, the Audit Committee met to address the city’s insolvency plan.

Obviously Alvin your complaint about having a chip on his shoulder is more a reflection of you in the mirror than Mr. Miller. Again, the complaint is a complaint with no confirmed facts. Again, you go off on a tangent and make ... More ›

Campaigning on a blog is one way to get a message out, but showing leadership requires more than blogging. You are baiting him and he is not swallowing. Good for him.

Alvin, I believe he tried that route when he kept asking for the info. The Mayor should have been the one demanding the information and having Joslin give the info to Mr Miller and rest of the council members. Maybe he felt ... More ›

Untrue what "should" have been done was to keep employee actions out of the newspaper and handled in execute session with his peers. Running to the paper was ridiculous.

There is no proof to any of Joslin's complaints. I guess if you believe in guilty without trial or investigation then Jim is guilty. However, as stated before I find these accusations questionable and lawsuit against Joslin ... More ›

Untrue the article isn't about Joslin complaining, it's about a complaint lodged against Jim miller for creating a hostile workplace. My comments are on topic - the performance of Joslin isn't the topic, Jim's handling ... More ›

Alvin, the article was about Joslin complaining. You took that article and made it about a non-career politician stepping down immediately for not apologizing. My point was to refocus the problem on the problem, Joslin. The ... More ›
