That rumor was posted on John Ross' Facebook page by one of his "friends" on a link that he posted that Rossville Metals was going to lease space in Chattanooga. So if Rossville Metals is still at the Peerless, it doesn't sound like you plan on it being there much longer.
As far as this getting off-topic, you're the one who decided to hijack it with your own political self-promotion. I've read your commentaries all over the place so my belief that you're slimy comes from what I know about you from you, yourself, and not based on anything I've "heard" from anybody else.
And before you go off on some tangent assuming that I'm a fan of Rossville City politics, think again. Their decision to sink money into Roy's with taxpayer money stinks to high heaven.
And right on cue enters Les Coffey attempting to earn himself a view votes when he incorrectly assumes the tide may turn in his favor. You're a pretty slimy fella, Les Coffey. But then again, I suspect you already knew that.
Well, of course Robert Pattinson doesn't glow; he sparkles... remember?
That's the trouble having these negotiations behind closed doors. If it wasn't documented in the agreement, then the issue of the $1 million executive pay just boils down to "he-said, she-said." Since this article has board members willing to go on the record to back up this figure, I tend to believe them despite the denials coming from Erlanger.
I am appalled that the agreement does specifically deny any responsibility for severance pay for employees that may be "transitioned." C'mon, Erlanger, if you are willing to pay a total sum of $1 million dollars a year for executive pay, at least be willing to cough up some money for severance pay for the people that are going to be losing their jobs. It may not be required by law to do such, but it is just the right thing to do.
Any HMC employee who is still wide-eyed with hope and the belief that Erlanger is coming to "rescue" them and save their jobs, needs to reread this article and think again.
Red Bankistan and East Ridge can't hold a candle to Catoosa County when it comes to shenanigans. Redneck central for sure.
I have heard many average everyday HMC employees complain that they haven't had a raise in 5 years. It would be nice if Chris Carroll could find out whether this is true or not. If it is, then the news concerning higher executive pay while they have the threat of job losses still dangling over their heads has got to be demoralizing.
As for as dangling golden carrots, this is the same logic that Stewart used to get his security clauses in his contract approved along with his year of severance written in. He was taking a substantial risk coming to work for a company in the red, blah, blah, blah.
Pay the next CEO a bonus for an year with an astounding financial loss like Stewart was, Erlanger, and I predict you will have the HMC employees completely beat down.
Risk making yourselves illegal as opposed to what... nonexistent? Sounds like more of the same type of logic that these boards used to run this hospital into the ground the first time around.
Wow is right! That nurse sounds more like a street thug than somebody with a little education under his/her belt that is suppose to care for people. Yeah, I can see this ship is going to continue to sink fast if this is the typical Hutcheson employee mindset.
So does this mean that Catoosa County plans on solely funding this deal with Erlanger without Walker or Dade? Are these Catoosa County commissioners out of their minds? Surely the taxpayers of Catoosa wouldn't support this!
Anybody in a position to approve former CEO Stewart's $69,000 bonus for last year should accompany Martha Attaway out the door as well. You all have done a huge disservice to the community you were suppose to serve.
