The letter below is self-explanatory. It is the letter from Bossier Parish EMS Board Vice-President Robert Berry dated earlier this month laying out his reasons for resigning.
Berry and board member David Anderson both resigned prior to yesterday's meeting.
Doris Grappe and Charlotte Hamiter (a Plain Dealing alderman), both submitted their letters of resignation under protest. David Brian also resigned.
Speaking of now suspended EMS Director Duxie Scott, Hamiter said "Duxie has saved and supplied everything this parish needs and he has been ousted – just because one person did not like him. The salaries he’s talking about, we rescinded those salaries."
The one person she is referring to, of course, is Berry. Berry has also alleged instances of illicit sex by employees while on duty and that an individual with a felony theft conviction was hired by Scott. There are also charges of $15,000 worth of building materials missing from the construction site of the new EMS facility.
NWLATPA has a link to all of the documents on their website.
There will be a public meeting Tuesday at 3PM at the EMS office on Swan Lake Road to discuss the investigation.
