The Untold Story About The HR Director For Wicomico County

When the former Finance Director, Leslie Lewis was sinking fast in quick sand during the last budget session, it was Michelle Ennis who was called in multiple times to save her. We provided the actual video footage from PAC 14 weeks ago proving this to be a fact. 

All of a sudden, after she was terminated, Council President John Cannon took the word of this disgruntled employee as she claimed she had never seen the so called document the forensic auditor claimed was 'possible' fraud. After little research, evidence came to light that Leslie had, in fact, seen the document and agreed to the HR Director getting a raise.

So when the rest of your local media continue to IMPLY there's still something there, (fraud-wise) when in FACT there is NOTHING, it is extremely irresponsible of them to continue this witch hunt. Typical of the local media's bias against ANY Republican representative, the fact that they no longer have the funds to afford an investigative reporter(s), they simply run with the LIES they are being fed and come back saying, we didn't lie, someone else did. 

So here's more TRUTH. 

Did you know HR Director Michelle Ennis has been with the County for almost 15 years? That's a fact. Did you know she has TWO Masters Degrees? OK, aside from the fact that she's more than qualified to hold the position she is now in, did you know that when the recommendation came in for a pay increase for her position, it was suggested she receive a 12% pay increase to be in parity with other counties for this position? Did you also know that Executive Culver only gave her an 8% pay increase instead?

OK, now that some of the FACTS are out there, here's the BIG one. Did you know that even after being with the County for 15 years, Ennis is still being paid LESS than the MAN who held this same position before her? How ridiculous is that?!

So the mere fact, (once again) that Council President John Cannon agreed to this BS forensic audit to try to discredit both Ennis and County Executive Bob Culver, it only proves further, this was a witch hunt. 

WBOC, WMDT and the Daily Times know for a FACT that whenever someone threatens legal representation, it is against not only a state law but federal laws as well for the Executive to speak ANYTHING referencing personnel matters. Shame on the local media for attempting to continue to imply this "fraud" investigation ceased simply because the Executive refused to discuss details and they couldn't go any further. NO, it was dropped because Cannon had egg in his face because the TRUTH smacked him and the rest of the Council in the face and they're embarrassed. 

On a final note, Cannon had been warned well in advance that he needed to DROP this matter because, (as proven in the last council meeting) he was defaming Ennis and was putting the County TAXPAYERS (and local media) on very thin ice for a potential lawsuit and he went ahead and overwhelmingly defamed her to no end this week. It can easily be proven that they know better and published defaming information anyway.

So guess what Folks, this is far from over...

You know there is a reason they call them the good ole BOYS.

Sounds like, Joe, you are prepping us for another taxpayer funded lawsuit where "we, the people" get to fork over some more of our money because politicians can't shut up.
Cannon was TOLD of the possible legal issues.
Now, we may get to pay for them.
Keep cheering.

Did anyone check the finance director's for evidence that the document was generated on that computer?

Wicomico County will always be "The Good Ole Boy" system. Its not what you know, your skills, experience, its who you know. Very sad, she deserves that increase in full.

JoeAlbero said...

Rebel, Yes, it was e-mail messages that was her downfall, as well as they entire Council.

lmclain, yes, absolutely. Cannon was told numerous times to shut up and he refused.

Michele has came a long way. Wow did not know she has so much education. You go girl.

Rebel Without a Clue said...

OK - so there is an electronic trail emanating from the Finance Director's email indicating that either there was an attachment with the recommendation letter or one that stated that she put in a recommendation for Michelle Ennis? I don't have an opinion one way or the other but my forensic IT-side makes me ask questions.

People like the men on the county council don't care about the lives they destroy with their political games. Their disingenuous garbage is there to forward their own goals and screw everyone else. It's obvious this woman worked there long before they polluted our county and that's probably one of the reasons they treat her so badly and smear her name. Is she up for a county retirement package and Johnny along with his buddies don't want to pay it? 15 years is closer to 20 everyday. This is the kind of BS government does when they want to skate on paying out pensions. If she sues the county I hope she sues every councilman individually. Then she'll be set for life while they age in the has-been pile of where are they now, broke. They all deserve it!

You get the government you accept 911. Maybe you should up the bar. Can't Wicomico county do better than this crap? The council doesn't even have a woman on it. Ever wonder why?

JoeAlbero said...

Rebel, there is absolutely a trail PROVING a key person who started this whole thing LIED. They were caught red handed and THAT is why the council dropped their $50,000.00+ investigation. She absolutely recommended the pay raise, period.

So do tell me WHY the local media is publishing and supporting these lies?

Yesterday it was only Salisbury News who delivered EVIDENCE, yet the rest of the media covered it up and they were delivered the exact same documents.

Cancel your subscriptions to the Daily Disappointment people. Liz LIED yesterday in her original article and then retracted it without notice to the viewing audience. Of course it was HOURS after the original article was published.

Look, let me say this. Salisbury News is getting up to 85,000 hits a day. We are, (by far) the largest news source on the shore. We are a FREE service to the community. When we publish articles we deliver factual and DOCUMENTED information, unlike the rest of the local press. People have come to learn this is the go to place to get the truth.

It's very sad that for my entire life we were raised to BELIEVE television and print news. Now it's all about LIES and Liberal verses Conservative agendas. The main stream media can not be trusted any more. They have become the National Enquirer because Bloggers like me have given them a run for their money. We are grass root, hard working citizens who love our country and communities. Liberals wants to come here and say I attack our community in an attempt to destroy it. NO, I'm calling out the very people destroying our communities and country. Those very people saying bad things about me are the very people full of hate and lies.

Ennis has 2 master degrees , like Day , he also has 2 master degrees . Day has degrees in what ? Maybe cooking or hair cutting . Just curious what she majored in. Anyway I wish her well and thanks again for the truth. Cannon is a lowlife piece of crap.

9:19 AM LOL you are clueless. But you got to slap yourself on the back once again in public like you always do. She could have logged in and written the letter from home and sent the email. She could have logged in and sent it from her vacation. You have no point.

The EBT Blogger is a stalking psychopath. Why does anyone think for a minute anyone reads his delusional rantings and pie-in-the-sky garbage is just amazing. All the comments on his site are ones he's made kind of like talking to yourself or hearing voice in his head. He's Sybil with a penis. Next...................................

I've worked with Michele on a project for the County. She is very professional and knowledgeable. The County is lucky to have someone of her skill set. The fact that she is not paid as well as males in same or similar positions is a disgrace. This County needs to get with the times and stop being so backward!

Also, if there are any lawsuits, Cannon should be sued personally. He has the money to pay. Why should the County taxpayers cover his stupidity and reckless behavior? With that said, the rest of the Council looks pretty stupid too. What does Cannon have on them that they continue to be made to look like fools?

JoeAlbero said...

10:20, LMAO! Someone read me some of his comments from yesterday and he wrote them all. He's trying to make it look like he has traffic butu no one is stupid enough to follow his hatred. Anything opposite of what I say. He attacks anyone who is a friend or associate of mine. Look, he doesn't know Michelle Ennis, not one bit. But he'll attack her like his worst enemy. He still attacks my innocent Wife and Grandson. That turns people off like nothing else but he is too stupid to realize people actually hate him. He serves no purpose, other then helping John Cannon have a voice, any voice. Yes, John Cannon is tied to the EBT blogger. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the EBT blogger isn't living in one of Cannon's rental properties in the near future and collecting assistance checks.

The funniest thing I ever saw from him recently was when someone sent me an article he wrote attacking my Wife, (once again) saying I sit at home while Joe blogs all day. That jackass does even have the sense to look in a mirror. He sits there blogging all day while his wife goes off to work. Talk about an Idiot!

Give Ennis a raise. Then she can afford to take me out to dinner.

The only person on the county council worth a damn is Joe Holloway.

Anonymous said...

Hi Joe
Here is where I am stuck.
At the time Ennis, a woman, was making less than a man, less than her peers.
She deserved a raise and got it.

Why does anyone have to recommend a raise when it is so obvious she was being discriminated against because she was a woman.

Whats the fraud?

Anonymous said...

Food for thought - Look at all the sweet deals, as in big salaries and big retirement packages, given to the MEN who have worked for the county. I think Pat Peterson is the only woman who benefitted and she helped write the "add 5 years" deal under big spender Pollitt.

Michele Ennis has worked hard, educated herself and deserves more than she is currently making - even with the 8% raise. If there are any REAL MEN in this county, they should hang their heads in shame at the disparity in pay and RESPECT between men and women. No wonder this county is circling the drain - backward and backwoods thinking!

Anonymous said...

11:10 - then Joe Holloway needs to lead the charge to oust Cannon as president.

Anonymous said...

Something very fishy here. I do not trust any of them. Pay the lady what she deserves if it is 10% pay it. Plus she smells better than Wayne no booze on her breath.

Anonymous said...

11:26 - The best men I know have NOTHING to do with Wicomico or Salisbury politics and would never consider supporting the good ole boy system that exists. They see it for what it is and don't respect most of those weasels. While I completely understand why they feel that way, it makes one wonder how different the city and county would be IF, as you say, "real men" were running them. For one thing, women would be respected and receive equal pay for equal work!

I find it amusing to read about the real goings on is Salisbury wicomico county government. Friends getting jobs they absolutely have no business doing. City and county government paying a person to HELP them fill in the blanks with the job they were hired to do. Here's my question why is there a double standard, Mrs Lewis was let go when it was evident she couldn't handle the job, yet Jake day creates a bogus new job for Tom Stevenson when it became evident he was below standard. He should have been made to go back to housing department or work on construction crew. Can someone please tell me what a public works coordinator does when there is already a public works head?

I hope Michele Ennis throws a law suit on John Cannon and the entire council for deformation of character
She deserves so much more and the entire council needs to be replaced with new fresh blood and this includes their so called lawyer Ed Baker
All I can say is Michele go for it

She does she is Dr Ennis

Concerned citizen said...

Has a PHD she is called Dr Ennis

Thornton Crowe said...

As a rule, it pains me to see innocent people being smeared for political reasons - especially when unjustified and based without merit. Dr. Ennis is no exception to this rule. While some think I am mean-spirited because I merely point out the obvious and ponder through writing the reasons for such divisive and uncalled for behaviors, it is not without saying, I am always cheering for the underdogs. This woman has been put through the proverbial shredder merely because she has a boss she admires and he has clashed with John Cannon many times. This is a fight best between them but Cannon doesn't do this in his dirty charade of freakery. As many of you read in my article about this whole situation, it's absolutely without cause that Dr. Ennis be hung out to dry and, frankly, should she choose to sue Cannon and his fellow Council, it would be well warranted given their atrocious behaviors towards her - especially after more than a decade and a half of faithful service to the county. In short, they should be ashamed of themselves and perhaps it's time they remedy this situation - putting their money where their mouths are - and a public apology would go miles, too.

Concerned citizen said...

There is no fraud she deserved the raise and more
Cannon is trying his best to hang her to get to Bob
Unfortunately, Cannon is doing more things against her and in public.
What organization writes a employee manual with County Council involved
HR has always completed this task with a committee even in big corporations
Cannon and his council are a joke and a disgrace to the county and they all need removed immediately
They should all be ashamed to show their faces around the county and they owe the citizens of Wicomico County and Bob Culver and Dr Michele Ennis a public apology

Anonymous said...

Mr. Crowe, the entire bunch doesn't have enough class to apologize to Dr. Ennis. They think they are superior and entitled. Thank you and Joe for continuing to expose every evil, ugly, wrong thing they do.

It truly is a shame that those that would be most qualified find it not worth their time or the headache that comes with leading local government. I would like to see the likes of Day, Dunn just go away with their bogus statistics, by most importantly all those that pillage the tax payers for jobs they have only because of how much butt they kiss

Sounds like to me she's a very intelligent knowledgeable person that knows what she's doing and probably makes those around her feel a little inferior and threatened. This is exactly the type of people your county and city government need no more of the buddy buddy system.

We are becoming the Barrie Tilghman era it is truly embarrassing. That entire C/C needs to go. Bob needs to dump Wayne he is like a bad penny just keeps turning up. That guy can be trusted Bob.
