|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 up ridiculous claims.
Miller “was happy to blog with the information that lead to this complaint against him.” I for the tenth plus time read the complaint and did not see any mention of Mr. Joslin stating anything about the paper. Making accusations does not make someone else have to apologize. Alvin, you can post all day and night but it does not change the fact that these are unproven allegations and just because Mr. Miller was not a smooth as Clinton doesn’t make his intentions wrong. At this point, why don’t you stop badging Mr. Miller? Your opinion is not worthy of a response from Mr. Miller.
Alvin you obviously have issues with the paper and Mr. Miller as stated in your commit, “It wasnt just campaigning, he used the paper to try and bully his peers - under the guise of transparency.” Putting your opinion in the newspaper for all to comment on and spout their opinion about why you are not performing and why you need to apologize does not appear to be bullying. In fact, it is more transparent than the articles and letters that Mr. Joslin has put out. How about you ask Mr. Joslin to man up and speak to Mr. Miller one on one instead of bringing what appears to be a petty and unsubstantiated complaints.
This is Joslin fault. By all indications Joslin is not performing his job appropriately. Further, Joslin served as Commander, 81st Judicial District Narcotics Task Force and was the assistant Chief of Police of Floresville. Those positions require training in personnel actions, communication and leadership. I would expect those lessons to make Joslin more aware of expectations, communications and leadership. However, Joslin’s actions demonstrate a poor leader, incompetent management and inability to communicate with peers and superiors.
So, in spite of your gnashing of teeth against the paper and Mr. Miller, your request does not require or even remotely entertain the need for Mr. Miller to respond. However, your negativity is expected and is why Mr. Miller was elected to get away from all this worthless nitpicking of people trying to make it better.
PS If your comments about Mr. Miller commenting under a pseudonym are directed at me, I can assure you I am not Mr. Miller and have no affiliation with him, his business, relatives or any other vested interest. I just want the financial situation to be known by facts being presented by a competent City Manager and then City Council doing its job of spending the money wisely in transparent manner. I personally find the hiring of Mr. Joslin incomprehensible. The last City Manager retired and only stayed on when the City raised his salary to $60,000 (don’t remember the exact specifics). Then Joslin with “the good ole boy” network was hired when he got in trouble for breaking someone’s wrist even though he is not qualified. If we are going to pay City Manager $80,000 let the City fire incompetent Joslin and do a search for a skilled and experienced one who knows finance and can communicate with council members without crying in a complaint letter. If Joslin was half that man, you want us to believe Alvin, then he should have gone to Miller and spoke with him. Isn’t that what adults do?
