Well the word is out - if you are looking for a job as a town manager - stay away from Robbins. We will kick you to the curb without any warning (even at our first meeting as a new council) - without telling you our expectations or giving you the chance to do the job. We are Robbins, NC!
This is in support of the town manager. Seems that people with personal axes to grind have lots of negative opinions. Others of us have a different look to share! The Council voted tonight 3-2 for Mr. Hayfield to go. The room was crowded with supporters for him to stay. They included business owners, clergy, town employees, and others. The meeting lasted less than 15 minutes and there was no opportunity for public comment. Mr. Hayfield was a real part of this community. We will be hard pressed to find a qualified. hard working person like he is who also cares about the town like he does. This was a very unprofessional process by a new council - very sad for all.
This is a mess. Maybe the town council would back off of this firing decison when they meet Friday. Take some time to work through this - Mayor English would show himself to be a big person if he were to help the council re-think this.
True, George has been a manager who brought in grants to improve services. Hard to call that a bad thing in a town with limited resources! He was an active part of the community - and he offered good ideas to improve Robbins - the positive changes were noticeable over the last few years. The new council could at least have taken time to assess the state of the town before they took this action.
