He was not, as a growing chorus of rumors claimed, asked to leave his job nor did he contemplate resigning, he said.
â€œIf it wasn’t so sad or scurrilous, I’d laugh about it,â€ he said. â€œBut people get worried about things like that. I think it’s unfortunate. I’ve got to believe my own people heard that and went â€˜right’ or â€˜good grief.’ â€
It seemed the more I heard, the more I just got to a point where, “This is so ridiculous, it can’t be true.” I guess what bothered me most was I didn’t have anyone who could verify the multiple accusations and rumors. NO ONE. What made it even worse was this was boiling up on Facebook, a place that can be full of so much bullsh*t it’s not even funny.
While at times I felt some of the things could be true, I got confirmation yesterday from a Sanford rep that NOT only was none of it true, they were baffled who started this. I have no idea, but it seems the main culprit may be a disgruntled former employee with an axe to grind. Believe it or not today’s announcement by Kelby may be in part because I encouraged this same Sanford rep to have Kelby make a statement to quell the wild fire. Which he did.
If there is one thing I learned from all this is that I’m glad I resisted beating the drum. While Facebook is a great place to connect with friends and family, remember, it’s probably not the best source for actual news.
Nothing to see here, move along.
Of course the lingering question still is out there, Who signed off on the bad events center siding? I was hoping Kelby would tell us. Darn it.
