TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC AND PROSECUTOR OVERTURN LOCAL 42 ARBITRATION!!!
It seems that courthouse business is coming to a boiling point while top elected officials in Jackson County are busy tilting at windmills in service of political ambitions.
To wit . . .
IN A DECISION DESCRIBED AS "UNCONSCIONABLE" A RECENT LOCAL 42 ARBITRATION WAS OVERTURNED BECAUSE THE COUNTY EXEC AND PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE DIDN'T LIKE THE OUTCOME!!!
Remember, we've noted that while Mean Jean Peters Baker is busy playing the women's rights crusader in Maryville her office is facing EPIC FUNDING PROBLEMS and recently had to go to the Legislature for extra cash.
Now, an arbitration fight regarding discrimination claims against the prosecutor's office seems to be reaching critical mass.
Moreover . . .
A RECENT ARBITRATION DEFEAT HAS NOW TURNED INTO A MAJOR BLOWUP AFTER THE JUDGEMENT WAS REVERSED BY THE PROSECUTOR AND COUNTY EXEC!!!
A motion for a declaratory judgement was just filed today and it explains the sitch perfectly . . .
"Two days after the 42 arbitration decision was made by the impartial arbitrator, Michael Sanders, the County Executive, and Jean Peters Baker, the prosecutor, overturned the well-reasoned decision in a document which is akin to the County’s arbitration brief."
And this is where the office of the Jackson County Exec gets involved . . .
While Jackson County Exec Mike Sanders is busy playing campaign strategist behind the scenes on Question 1 . . . Here's a look at his office taking a hard line in a Local 42 arbitration . . .
"We, the Jackson County Prosecutor and the Jackson County Executive, having reviewed the “Arbitration Opinion and Award” issued by Arbitrator Rohlik, determine that the findings of fact and decision of the Arbitrator are clearly contrary to the Weight of the evidence under the proper standard of review. Therefore, pursuant to Article VI, Section 3C, ofthe Agreement, We hereby modify the “Arbitration Opinion and Award” in this Joint Ruling, and specify the facts and evidence Which support our modification of Arbitrator Roh1ik’s decision."
So, let's review take a look at what this means:
- Mean Jean's Prosecutor's Office remains in deep turmoil while she's busy in Maryville.
- Jackson County Exec Mike Sanders might be an aspiring campaign strategist on Question 1 but he might be miscalculating by taking the hard line in this Local 42 arbitration case.
- Discrimination complaints and other County business seem to be reaching the boiling point as our top elected officials are going into campaign season.
