I’m guessing the city’s wellness coordinator may have an issue with this.
Remember what TenHaken said in 2012 about employees sharing political views on social media;
Ten Haken said he is no stranger to a good political debate on his Facebook and Twitter, but airing out your political feelings online can be a social media â€˜don’t’ because it can come back to haunt you.Â Rants and fights online can not only wreck personal relationships, but even put your job in jeopardy.
â€œIt’s just safe to kind of walk the middle of the road and if you’re going to post about politics.Â There’s nothing wrong with engaging in politics, but just not in such a polarizing way,â€ Ten Haken said.

The takeaway from the story is that employers (self included) don’t necessarily appreciate overly controversial bantor and talk that can create a rift in a company’s culture. Politics, religion, sports, etc. are certainly not taboo, but extreme left and right views can make an employer question the â€œfitâ€ someone will be in a work environment that the employer has painstakingly built.
And who can forget his Deputy COS’s comments just months (7/11/17) before being hired to work for the administration;
It seems Paul needs to step back and take his own advice before hiring certain individuals to work for the city.
