KAREN DEGGES STILL BEING PAID BY JASPER COUNTY TAXPAYERS

November 12, 2015

When you have weak Commissioners, who can’t even fire someone for not coming in on time, lying, harassing employees, allowing theft to take place, and just not doing the job, taxpayers end up paying the consequences.

Karen Degges was put on “medical leave” by the BOC on July 6. On July 23, 2015 she was fired “for cause.” In August Ms. Degges applied for unemployment with the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL). The county responded:

The County indicates the reason Karen Degges was fired was because she allowed Sherry Braley to resign (after the GBI had interviewed Sherry) instead of firing her. Item #6 also states that Karen Degges was warned about her “deficient job performance over the course of several job evaluations.” What job evaluations? If that is true than why were Comm. Salmon and Comm. Trammell both still praising her up to and including the day she was fired?

Despite all the problems Karen Degges caused Jasper County by not doing her job, the GDOL decided she should in fact have unemployment benefits. They determined that she was never informed her work was unacceptable.

The Jasper County BOC has one employee they are to supervise and control, and that is the County Manager. They didn’t do their jobs properly, and now the county taxpayers are on the hook for another $4620 to Karen Degges.
Karen Degges was making $1,635 per week when she was fired.

The taxpayers of Jasper County are paying this amount because GDOL will bill the county for all benefits that are paid to Karen Degges.

Remember, elections for County Commission Districts 1, 3, and 5 are coming up in 2016. It is time for some strong commissioners with integrity to serve Jasper County. Who do you know that is willing to serve?

    These buffoons are definitely the worse administration Jasper County has seen since the Eat Crow administration betrayed the voters and dumped millions of dollars of debt on the backs of the taxpayers in the form of subsidies for JCWSA and Stanton Springs Joint County Development.
    And I thought we never could do worse, yet he we are.
