Lee co. commissioner Frank Mann is calling on co. manager Karen Hawes to resign at once, or face possible firing as soon as next week. Hawes has been sharply criticized during the Medstar shut-down.
"I appreciate her work for the county for 25 years, but this is a time for action. Citizens are accosting me, saying, when are you going to do something about the management," said Mann.
"I cannot comment, I am under legal advice," replied Hawes.
If she is fired, or quits at the request of the county board, Hawes would receive 1-year's pay as severance. That is $170-thousand. She'd also get cash for un-used sick time and holidays.
Her contract is set to run another 2 years, until Sept. 30 2014.
