First off, I want to say Thank You!
Thank you to all those that supported me, both publicly and privately; Thank you to all my staff that helped me to succeed for the past 8 years, particularly Lavern Bourgeois who served as my Chief Building Official; and Thank You to Tommy Martinez and the Ascension Parish Council for believing in me and providing me with the opportunity to bring my family back home to Louisiana.
Secondly, concerning the appeal, my request has been officially withdrawn. The purpose of my appeal request was not to fight for a job where I was not wanted, but rather for the ability to be reinstated so that I could resign and have the termination removed from my record. Last week the Parish President afforded me that opportunity and I officially resigned on March 30th.
I have been busy sending out resumes for the past 4 weeks and it shall truly be interesting to see what the future holds for ‘this guy from Florida…’
