Open letter to reporter Chris Oke:

This letter is in response to your continuing to reference my name in various articles in the last five months.

The words and manner in which you have presented this misinformation only encourages and perpetuates an environment for groundless criticism. Furthermore, it is disappointing that your reports, which I consider to be libelous, provide an unfair bias and are not based on facts.

In regards to your continuing to mention the wrongful letter of suspension, I returned to work for the Town of Faro for another three months, continuing to perform my duties under Municipal Act No. 184. I chose to obtain other employment due to a conflict in management styles. Oke, and all others, please refrain from referring to the wrongful suspension, as the appeal of the wrongful suspension is the last word on the file. Faro council chose not to make a decision under Municipal Act No. 189.

For your information, accurate background documents (minutes, reports to council, etc.) are public documents and refute/explain all criticism written about me with the exception of one listed in the wrongful suspension Ð “Spelling mistakes.” Many people who have issues with spelling do not allow this to hold them back or stop them from being successful in their chosen careers.

To quote Philip Gooden, author of The Story of English, How the English Language Conquered the World: “Misspelling doesn’t usually lead to misunderstanding, only annoyance among those who are likely to get annoyed.”
