Charge of campaigning by firefighter

The Birmingham News (al.com) reports: Graysville Fire Chief Jeff Wesley, on administrative leave since announcing a run for mayor, resigned today.

Wesley, hired as chief in 2004, said he would not have been able to serve under newly-elected Mayor Mary Sue Morgan. Wesley said Morgan had made it difficult for him to do his job during her time as a member of the Graysville City Council. ...

Among the disagreements between Morgan and Wesley is an allegation Morgan wanted two Graysville firefighters disciplined for campaigning for Wesley.

One of those firefighters, Wesley said, had a campaign sign in his personal vehicle in a private parking lot. Wesley said he did not know how the other firefighter had campaigned for him. -- Read the whole story --> Graysville Fire Chief Jeff Wesley has resigned | al.com
