First I’d like to introduce everyone to Jeff Grant, who was recognized as Marine Fisheries Employee of the Quarter less than a year ago.
Jeff was even recommended for a promotion last October.
About 6 months after being promoted, Jeff was fired from his job at DMR. It is a stunning turn of events considering that at the time he was 9 months removed from being employee of the quarter. A week or so ago Jeff stopped in and shared some of his story, which can found in comments to this post. Jeff welcome to the community here at Slabbed.
DMR Executive Director Jamie Miller’s reputation as a “blunt force” manager continues to the topic of much chatter there at the Bolton Building as well as among former employees.
And of course we have public notice of a public hearing. Folks, June 14, 2016 is one happening day here on the coast with Scott Walker’s B&B Hearing in Ocean Springs and the DMR Oyster Aquaculture meeting in the Pass.
