Sullivan Lawmaker Questions Termination Policy
MONTICELLO – Former Sullivan County Legislator David Sager, who was named deputy commissioner of the county Division of Health and Family Services, has been let go.
Sager was hired by Commissioner Randy Parker shortly after he assume the administrative post last fall.
Legislators were saying little specific about the sacking of Sager during Thursday’s monthly legislative meeting.
Democrat Cindy Kurpil Gieger conceded she has general concerns about policy.
“Questions remain in my mind regarding the process that the county follows in dealing with employment issues,” Gieger said.
“We’re not in charge of hiring or firing anybody; that is not our job,” another said Democrat Kathy LaBuda.
During public comment, the only resident to speak on any topic defended Sager, saying, “He has been our most consistent public servant, even when it worked to his detriment.”
