Pork of Shelton Commissioner/Chair Jay Hupp appears gob smacked after inviting public comment only to be met with stony silence following Pork Executive Director John Dobson’s retaliatory firing of the courageous exemplary staffer, Teresa Rebo who had filed a whistle blower complaint about alleged favoritism, cronyism, and misappropriation of public assets for his pals, the Hansens, in their bid to lease Pork Property, i.e. the fairgrounds, to the company owned by the Hansens. Mr. Dobson admitted in one Pork meeting he intended to assist the Hansens in creating a business (presumably profit based). Ms. Rebo complained the terms offered the Hansens were effectively a ‘gift’ of public assets.
Mr. Hansen is seen (in this clip) attempting to defang the allegation his wife verbally abused Ms. Teresa Rebo during a phone call to the Pork, using obscenities when asked who was calling by responding “I think you know who this is you low life piece of s***!”
Pork Commissioners were asked if they were aware of this verbal abuse and telephone harassment prior to Ms. Rebo’s firing. No response from the ‘Untouchables’ was offered. They later demurred it was all under Mr. Dobson’s purview and had nothing to do with them…ignoring the legal fact the Pork is liable for Mr. Dobson’s actions/misconduct–as though it were Czar Dobson’s private enterprise/personal fiefdom.
Skip Hauser (Pork attorney) must realize by now he hit the jackpot when he signed on with the Pork–a virtual goldmine given its support for the Skip Hauser Full Employment Act.
