No Way to Go

September 14, 2011

Stafford’s City Manager gave the City Council his resignation Monday evening. I was told that Jerry (Mac) McMillian sited the treatment he’s been receiving from the council as the reason for his decision. It’s tragic that the situation deteriorated to this point.

A public servant like Jerry should have concluded his career with a celebration – not a resignation.

Most know that Jerry wasn’t only the City Manager – he was also a firefighter. And as the City Manager, Jerry supervised other city workers, who too were firefighters. So, you can imagine the impact Jerry has had on fire protection for both the City of Stafford and Stafford County.

As the Emergency Service Director for Stafford County my appreciation goes deeper than the average resident. Jerry (Mac) McMillian is a hero in my eyes – a hero that deserves a celebration.

Thanks for your service Jerry!

    It is sad that the City of Stafford would vote a council in that acts like that!!! VERY sad that Jerry felt he had to retire because of their actions!!!!!! You think the city would get together and get rid of the real problem!!!

    My dad and i have been very close my whole life, and i in fact also believe he is a hero. he always makes sure everyone is being treated fairly. It is sad that the harassment got this far! sitting in the council meetings and listen to certain people call my dad pathetic.. that was the hardest thing for me to hear. in the 17 years i have been around my dad has never let me down even once. I’m glad that the loving community members are there for him, he really appreciates the support!! Great article Steve!!
