Town of Middletown Councilman Jake Rosa drew the ire of Supervisor Marge Miller and Councilman Michael Finberg last Tuesday night when he advised them he had asked the New York State Department of Labor (DOL) to investigate a complaint made against Miller by a town employee.
In March, Town Code Enforcement Officer (CEO) Carl “Pat” Davis, presented the board with a letter accusing Miller of harassment and of making slanderous accusations about him.
In his letter, Davis said, “Over the three years I have worked with Supervisor Miller, I have been subjected to numerous instances of her uncontrolled screaming, her fist slamming on desks, and her use of language that I would be embarrassed to use publicly.” He added, “These incidents of intimidation are violations of the Town’s Workplace Violence Protection Policy. No Town employee should be subjected to them – and yet all of us are.”
