Dear Preston County Commission:

Congrats, your sheer douchebaggery is national! Your incompetence and hatred for the puppies and kitties made Caturday!

Here's a page that tells you how to reach the commission, if you're so inclined: http://www.prestoncountywv.org/officials.php  Since it's the commission's publicly available elected officials page (and the first one that pops in a Google search), I don't think it breaks any Fark rules.

National embarrassment, or give an effective shelter manager who actually gives a shiat about the animals her job back? Should be a no-brainer, but it is West Virginia, so there's that.

The_Original_Roxtar: don't post negative shiat about your employer online. that's just common sense.


Meh - maybe when I was younger and scared for rent money. Now? I'll let the world know when someone sucks as an employer, if only to prevent some poor bastard from having my same terrible experience.

ajgeek: People testified the truth of her statements and they still fired her and denied the allegations? No, power doesn't corrupt in the slightest, ever.

/Christ, what assholes.


I love the part where the council said it doesn't have to consider what the public thinks. In other words: We know what we're doing is petty, shiatty, and unacceptable, so don't remind us.

$1500 for a backup generator and the County wouldn't have had to worry about looking like assfarks.

Maybe she did need firing for insubordination, but the next 2 levels up the chain of command need to be fired even more for incompetence.

Is this snark?  An employer has no more right to your personal socal media accounts than it does to your personal financial accounts or personal email.

Not to mention that someone who can average 3 or so adoptions a day for unwanted pets is probably a bit more effective in their job than an elected commissioner.

There is too much internet drama involved in this for me to take any of it seriously..

I'm ruling in favor of everyone is wrong..

This was about the Facebook page. They demanded access the the SHELTER's Facebook page, to maintain direct control, and she refused.

Too bad, so sad. I agree with her dismissal.

Our local shelter finally caught onto the Facebook effectiveness when the page run by volunteers was doing so well. Then they realized they had no control. They created their own page, and asked the volunteers to shut down theirs. It was sad and a bit upsetting at first, but the replacement page has been a huge success and the shelter is not at the mercy of idiots like this woman.

Maybe they could have fixed the pipes and gotten a heater and prevented all of this drama? It's amazing how people in power always seem to lose their common sense and actively destroy themselves with their own stupidity.

Personal account, I'd agree. FB account representing the organization? I think the bosses might want access.

Hey here's an online petition website:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/250/836/336/support-courtney-and-save -l ives-of-animals-in-rural-animal-shelter/

I don't know if it needs to get 100K signatures in 30 days though.

I figure she was maybe trying to solicit some pro-bono work by an animal lover in the plumbing profession to save money for the shelter.

As usual, not nearly enough info to make any decision, so we're left guessing again.

1. It's possible people saw their breath without the pipes being frozen and heat being unavailable.
2. It certainly sounds like the Facebook access dispute was at the heart of the problem
3. They didn't testify that any animals died as a result, so there probably wasn't any kind of problem to begin with. I'm sure we would have heard endlessly the count and breed of animal that died.

Lame article

Sooo..... was there a heating problem or not?

And what other issues were involved? Sounds like they're claiming this was only one of multiple problems they had with her.

jim32rr: So none of the animals have been shot ..... yet


They're commissioners, not SWAT or DEA. No need to be shooting people's animals or terrorizing their families when there isn't the possibility that some guy is getting stoned now and then in his own den after work.

Courtney should take one of those commissioners' seat, running on the Kittens & Puppies Platform.
