Insubordinate attack / October 15, 2015

Dear Viewpoint:

I have been silent and staying away from making any public statements concerning the present situation with the Board but the unwarranted and insubordinate attack on Bryant Claiborne (“Halasz hits back at critics,” News & Record, Monday, Oct. 12) is indicative of why I voted to terminate Jim Halasz.

The decision to terminate was my decision and was not done because Bryant Claiborne told me to do it. It was based on the facts presented which the public will soon know. Jim Halasz’s response should have been to the 14 reasons on Barry Bank’s list supporting his termination but he chose to attack Bryant Claiborne, one of his employers. Based on the facts and facts alone, I decided to vote yes for termination.

I leave the public with this: I have served this County in some capacity as an elected official for over 30 years. I have served on the Board of Supervisors with Bryant Claiborne for nearly 12 years now. For almost 11 of those years, you never heard from Bryant Claiborne about employees. He was justified in opening his mouth this time and for that reason, I am in support of him. He has the best interest of the County at heart. Halifax County is his home as it is my own. A few employees should not be allowed to disrupt the unity we have had in the past.

Lottie Nunn, District 7 Supervisor
