Pender County Health Department

As a life long citizen of Pender County, I don't see this with the same humor as "Snoop". While Dr. Griffith has done some great things for the Pender County Health Department, I know first hand that in recent years, his leadership has suffered tremendously. He tends to be very patronizing and demeaning in his conversations with what he considers his "lesser beings". As far as lack of training in certain positions, consider this....Dr. Griffith hired then acting county manager Paul Parker's stepson Steven Throneburg as Pender County Animal Control Supervisor. This young man had no training for this position, and what's more for at least the first few months he was on the job he was not required to have any training. His employees who had been on the job for years , were forced to adhere to his "policies". They also had to do all of the "hands on" activities with the animals as Mr. Throneburg expressed fear of both the dogs and the cats. He may still have no training as far as I know.
