Wetumpka Mayor Rehires Assistant

Wetumpka, Alabama – Wetumpka's Mayor has put his assistant, Linda Lewis, back on the job. This after the Wetumpka City Council decided two weeks ago to move towards termination for alleged abusive language used in a conversation with a former city employee and Wetumpka resident.

Lewis filed suit saying she was improperly targeted for termination by the council. Mayor Jerry Willis says he conducted an investigation among City Hall employees who said they saw nothing improper committed during the alleged interaction between Lewis and the former city employee.

Mayor Willis says he reinstated Lewis because he found no evidence to support the allegation.
