CLEVELAND – Shawn Gidley, the City of Cleveland’s Public Safety Fiscal Manager, has released a letter stating that he will resign from his position effective Monday, January 12.
In Gidley’s letter to Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath, he states that he enjoyed his position and the work he completed, believing it was making Cleveland a better place to live.
“Unfortunately, there have been events over the past three years in the Department of Public Safety and under Mayor Jackson’s Administration that have changed this belief.”
The events Gidley referred to in the letter included the Cleveland Fire Department payroll scandal in 2011, the Cleveland police chase in November 2012, and the shooting death of Tamir Rice in November 2014.
“These events show a pattern of management that is lacking the required employee oversight, fails to provide the proper employee training, and management that is not being held accountable for the actions that take place with the Department of Public Safety.”
