From JBSizemore - Something is Seriously Wrong with this Picture

Attached are copies of emails that I have received from ASDB Staff over the last month. I will also forward these emails to you separately, but want you to have the over all picture in one spot.
 
I interviewed for this position and was recommended for hire at the beginning of July.

August 12th I was emailed by Mr. Glenn Liptak that I had not been hired, I emailed the Board at that time. (I have concerns that this email was not forwarded by Ms. Peirce to the board at that time. I do not have confirmation of that, but there was a strong reaction when I mentioned this to the Board members at the last board meeting)

I have not heard anything from HR regarding my Public Records request since August 27th, I emailed with Kharmyn Cousins.
 
Yesterday, September 9th, Jennifer Hudgens forwarded me an email from Dora Eamon stating that I had been hired for the position. My PPA was attached to that email.
 
While I am happy to be working for ASDB again, I am VERY concerned about what has happened with the process of hiring for this position. I know for a fact Glenn Liptak would not have sent that email to me saying that I wasn't hired without approval from Robert Hill or Maria Murphy.

I also know for a fact that in the unlikely event that Mr. Liptak made an error, that Lizbeth Hernandez and Kharmyn Cousins would have caught the error when I sent the email asking for the Public Records request.

The entire staff in HR is hard working, dedicated to accuracy and understanding of the best needs of the staff and the agency. Unfortunately, they are in a bad situation with Ms. Murphy and Mr. Hill telling them verbally to do something, as these two administrators are very good at NOT putting anything in writing. I am VERY concerned that blame involved with this situation will be placed on these three staff members shoulders, and I truly do not want that to happen.
 
I will forward all of the emails to you at this time as well.

Thank you for your time in this matter, I am available if you have questions related to this or any other matter.

Respectfully,

 

Jessica Boof Sizemore

This email below from Mr. Glenn Liptak is confirmation that Mr. Hill has refused to sign a PPA hiring me as an Houly ASL Interpreter, a position I have been working for my entire career at ASDB. I have done a public information request to see all of the paperwork for this hiring to ensure that Mr. Hill has made the final decision in this matter. Two of the interview panel members, when they heard that my PPA was not signed by Mr. Hill were so outraged that they told me my interview was completely in line with the expectations of the position. They had complete faith in my ability to do the position based on my interview and the work produced in that interpreter role for the last five years.

When I receive the records request I will email again with a fuller understanding of the situation. I wanted to make my newest situation clear to the board as soon as possible as I beleive this to be completely retalitory due to my firm and continuing support of Dr. Nancy Hlibock Amann, Mr. Richard Layton, and the students and staff of ASDB.

Respectfully,

Jessica Boof Sizemore
