So someone from the tenth floor (or whatever it is now that there's no tenth floor) leaked an internal housekeeping letter to the news and it turned into THIS. Now the misogynists are having their way with it and it smells.
First of all, you folks should be more than little upset that you have a leak within the top layers of your government. This time it was an internal note between council and an employee; will it be something more private and much more political next time? It will be.
Second, the woman was given a performance review by this council and this mayor and told to shape up. She has the privilege, and they should have the courtesy, to grade her on where she stands on her achievement of those goals. Anyone with a lick of sense and a job working for someone else would do the same thing. Only in El Paso is normal employee behavior seen as something to scoff at.
Of course she's requesting a raise for meeting or exceeding expectations - wouldn't you? When is the last time your boss asked you to improve and you did and you said "no, I don't want to be compensated more for my performance." That would be.... never. Why would Joyce Wilson be any different?
I think it's only fair that the people who claimed she wasn't doing something right have a chance to grade her on her performance in those areas before they leave office. Don't make a new council and mayor responsible for the actions of the old council when and where it can be avoided.
And I'll tell you one thing - 800 employees moved from one place to another and not single thing was noticed by the public. All the services kept running like clockwork and I haven't heard one complaint. Half of you idiots couldn't move to another office across the hall without losing three days worth of productivity - she deserves a God damned medal for what she's pulled off. And she did it while under fire from all of you woman hating Neanderthals who were slinging rocks at her. She beat you AGAIN!
Now, if you think she has too much power, I've got some news for you. Her power is derived from council and the mayor. She can not do anything without their approval. If you don't like the power she has, take it out on Rep. Holguin and his bunch who have been a party to the shift of tasks to her because they are too lazy, stupid and chicken to take them on themselves. You're an idiot if you blame Joyce Wilson for what the mayor and council have ultimate control over. Holguin and Robinson could put an item on every agenda to take power away from her - why haven't they? Because she does all the heavy lifting - not them.
If we were talking about "Joe" Wilson here instead of "Joyce" Wilson, you'd not have a single comment like you see in the paper. Look at the gender of the bulk of the people who attack her and tell me it's just a coincidence.
