Your report stated, in part, "Off camera, he (Leonard) said he was not part of the discussion on disciplining Johnson, even though as town manager he is Johnson's boss."
I am retired from the Town of Fair Bluff. Al Leonard essentially is a one-day-per week part time consultant, not the town manager in the usually-recognized sense of the term. I have read Al Leonard's employment contract with the Town of Fair Bluff, and IT SPECIFICALLY STATES THAT LEONARD HAS NO AUTHORITY IN PERSONNEL MATTERS!
Leonard is not Johnson's boss. As a matter of fact, nowhere in his employment contract does it refer to him as town manager. That is a label the media has hung on him.
You got that part very wrong, Channel 3 (something that often happens in your "reports").
