Acting Commissioner of S,B & H suspended without pay
Acting Commissioner of Streets, Bridges & Harbor Sue Frederick, met with the Acting Law Director, Assistant Chief of Staff and Director of Public Service on September 16. She agreed that her behavior constituted conduct unbecoming an employee of the City of Toledo. Therefore, effective immediately, she has been suspended without pay for one month.
This discipline takes into account the years of dedicated public service that Ms. Frederick has given the City while at the same time recognizes the seriousness of the allegations against her.
What I'd like to know is this: was this just for the theft of the campaign sign? Or does this penalty include her 'offer' to hire the owner of the sign???
Here's another thing for the Mayor to consider during her one-month suspension: how long does a person without the legal requirements for a position get to be 'acting'???
