Bart Stinnett, told Lance Coleman of Blount Today, that he is will not pursue re-certification and the transfer of his salary.
“I’ve withdrawn everything. I’m not going to pursue it. Obviously it raised some passionate feelings, and it’s not worth it to me to do that,” he said. “I don’t want to create any discord.”
At the January 2011 Commission meeting he requested that his salary transfer request be withdrawn from the agenda, yet the Commission voted to send it to the County Attorney for an opinion. It remains to be seen if certain commissioners and their “experts” continue to push this salary transfer request and why.
