Death of the Public Servant
Whether it’s a public health and safety mandate, the enforcement of building and safety codes, or the actions of law enforcement officers within a municipal police department, most people tend to think of Washington D.C. when it comes to the government. The sober reality, however, is that the most relevant government happens at the local level. Death of a Public Servant is a true story about a former City Manager’s personal experience. After serving his community for thirty years, he was accused of misconduct, labeled a whistleblower, and publicly terminated. These actions would blackball his reputation and nearly destroy his personal life. Over the next six years, he would embark on the steep, uphill journey to clear his name in court, while attempting to pivot from an otherwise stellar career in public service. After a challenging and lengthy court battle, he would go on to win a multi-million-dollar jury verdict. This book delves into the intricacies of the local public administrator role from the vantage point of someone with firsthand experience. It is raw and unfiltered, and shines a light on the actions of elected officials which often go unchecked. It is both personal and thought-provoking and will leave you to consider your civic responsibility as a member of your local community.
