I was just looking at it. Some things bothered me. "Slemmer said. 'I think he's a little hurt that the membership didn't fully accept his appointment.' " ????
Is it me, or does this sound a little crybabyish? He's a cowboy, right? Aint no crying at the Association! All boots and no cattle. Guess I cant tell him to cowboy up.
He's a "little hurt" because whoever/everyone didnt "fully" accept that the job was just given to him without any other interview process. ?? Really? Sheesh. Another embarrassing event at the AIA. I gotta wonder if he's one of the sources of many issues over there.
And is it common to "ask(ed) the AIA for a severance agreement" when he is the one making the decision to "end his days"? When does a boss ever agree to give you and me a severence package when we decide to tuck tail and leave because our feelings are hurt? Crazy!
I dont know the guy but sounds like a drama queen move.
