Fired Ct Humane Society Finance Assistant Has Questions For CHS Board

The following is a letter that Bridget C Karchere, former Conn Humane Society finance assistant, send to the new leaders of the board of directors.

It was written after the new chairman – Chris White – falsely told a donor that the board had met with disgruntled workers who had been fired.

“I was hoping that when Chris White contacted me,” Bridget told me “I could ask him, what was in my personnel file that prompted my termination? He states that due to what was in my personnel file my firing was legit. Which puzzles me, I was never written up at CHS. I, in fact, was considered a key staff member, and personally congratulated by Richard Johnston, in October 2009, for what a good job I was doing as the Finance Assistant. Of course this was prior to the news of the petition for Union representation at CHS.”
