Burning midnight oil meant temporary replacement for elections officer

It appears that putting in extra hours after work, does not always bode well for employees.  The Elections and Boundaries Department has been investigating the late opening hours of its Corozal branch on the night before the U.D.P. Corozal Bay convention on January eighth. According to Chief Elections Officer, Dorothy Bradley, an employee had asked to burn the midnight oil at the office, but her request was denied. Despite the denial, the employee went against instructions and kept the office open.  Bradley later told News Five that the employee did not have access to the voters’ database; therefore, she could not have affected the outcome of the elections.  Nonetheless, the additional working hours were under investigation. The employee was on approved leave for the duration of the inquiry but the outcome has not been made public. But today, a memorandum was released announcing the temporary employment of Cicelly Cajun as an Assistant Registering Officer at the Corozal office, effective February tenth. In the Corozal Bay convention which preceded the inquiry, Mayor Hilberto Campos lost to incumbent, Pablo Marin. The allegations of last minute registrations were raised by Campos’ campaign manager, David Akierman.

    There is only one thing she was doing. It relates to the voter list. Thats why she should not complain when fired. Such a thing as a voter list is sensitive and you cannot expect to be left alone with it. Who knows what you have done, contemplated to do or actually did? This is a sound decision to fire so no watch no face like something wrong was done to you.

    Campos is a Loser and can not take losing the election like a man since he is in the closet anyway. As for the Chabelo Kid he should be removed from the Free Zone a.s.a.p. and go back to smuggeling diesel fuel.
