Rewarding incompetence

Karla Thomas promises to bring the same level of incompetence to county government that she brought to city government.

It didn't take long for disgraced city administrator Karla Thomas to latch on to another do-nothing government job. Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant, who has a 3rd grader's command of the English language, has hired the incompetent Thomas as her new Legislative Assistant...

Under Thomas' watch, the city paid out more than $800,000 in health premiums for former city employees who had died.

After a lengthy hearing, an independent arbitrator ruled that Thomas' firing was justified because she had "failed to comply with a mayoral directive requiring immediate action."

More proof that the entire Erie County Legislature should be abolished. As I've said many times before, they do nothing that the all-volunteer Board of Managers once accomplished for free. Just another example of an unnecessary layer of government.
