UPDATE: 02.27/2012.....apparently Mack has reversed course and un-suspended Mr. Thompson. DCA spokeswoman Lisa Ryan wasn't available for comment today. I will follow up on Tuesday.
Sources at City Hall have reported that Acting Inspections Director Cleveland Thompson has been suspended, most likely because Mr. Thompson blew the whistle to the press about all of the money the City is losing out on because Trenton does not have a plumbing inspector.
The article that put a target on Mr. Thompson's back is HERE most Trentonians support Mr. Thompson and appreciate his candor but it appears, as usual, the Mack administration does not.
The Mack administration has made no official comment on the action...begging the question "so who is in charge of the Inspections Department now?"
I will check with the DCA on Monday to find out whats next? Does DCA have other applicants for this position? If so, who is it and when do they begin?
Or more importantly, can the DCA stop yet another vindictive firing/suspension/forced resignation of yet another honest and outspoken Director.
