It took a couple of weeks, but the new Ada Commishes, Kendra Kenyon and Diana Lachiondo, have apparently made some personnel changes. Let’s hope they did a better job of crafting their staff than the previous pair that cost taxpayers about a million and a half dollars as a result of a lawsuit.
Chief of Staff Larry Maneely no longer appears in the directory. Benny Poole, a long time employee and subsequent temp agency hire who oversaw public records requests also has disappeared from the Ada courthouse.
Seems there was something in the air at the Ada Air Quality Board where requests to speak to Kent Goldthorpe are met with, “He no longer works here.” Goldthorpe is also an ACHD Commish and the air quality gig was his day job.
Ada County has an “at will” employment policy.
