Mayor Fishing for Souls To the Polls? By Geniusofdespair
Administrative Leave: Time spent doing this activity (it calls for 5 hours) you get to take later as time off, in this case, half the time you 'volunteer'. So 20 employees get 2 1/2 hours off in the future. Your tax money is paying to get this activity going at a church. Don't churches usually find their own volunteers?
It is hard to be granted administrative leave, ask any staff member. It is also hard for Gimenez to make friends and garner good will in the black areas around Miami Dade County. This is a perfect opportunity for the 2016 election. This church is a hugely active political church. They have an early voter program, candidates visit the parishioners at the church. So this isn't just helping out a poor little church. It is a vote getter ploy.
They want souls to the polls while we, as usual, are taken to the cleaners.
