Here is a letter delivered by Dan Heaton who is the Macomb County Public Works P.R.person, delivered to the Fraser senior housing residents on April 28th.
Now here is a letter delivered to the same Fraser seniors 4 days later on May 2nd.
Looks like the same thing doesn’t it? Except for the blurb on the end of the “Joe” one, they are the same.
We are going to hear this week about the city needing to watch all the dollars it can on the budget, yet Joe Nichols used city resources to copy and paste an update that was already given.
Once again this is a county issue.
Why were city resources used to duplicate this?
How much did this cost the city?
Why did Joe not give attribution to the county for their press update?
Candice Miller has done a great job tackling this problem and dealing with it. She does not seek the spotlight and just wants to do the job she was elected to do. Mrs Miller is so focused on the “job” part, she had her Public Relations person sign the update to the citizens of Fraser.
If Joe focused on his job instead of chasing the spotlight, he might be as successful as Candice Miller.
