All-hail the Mayor
A Deerfield, Fla., city employee has been reprimanded for not saying “Hello” to the mayor when they passed in a hallway. Maintenance worker Cassandra Moye was told that by not acknowledging Mayor Peggy Noland, she had “caused irrevocable damage to the welfare of the department and your fellow workers” and would be suspended. “I was scared,” says Moye, whose punishment was later reduced to a written citation. “They were talking about firing me. My family needs to eat.”
