Union Leader Responds to Firings in Attorney General Office
Steven J. Anderson, president of a union that represents many of the attorneys who were fired this week by interim Attorney General Peter J. Nickles, said the union plans to challenge the recommended terminations. He said he believes all of the attorneys had received "satisfactory evaluations."
"He just kind of went through the office and fired people that the supervisers didn't like," Anderson said in this morning's Washington Post. "Most of them seemed to be older."
"It may be the way things are done at big law firms. I don't think it's a good way to run civil service."
Nickles told the D.C. Wire this week that he was having to cut positions from the AG's office to close a budget deficit. It is also a chance, he said, to get an early start on his plans to clean up the AG's office and get rid of poor performers in order to build a first-rate, professional office.
It goes without saying, but we're going to say it anyway: DC Wire wants to hear from folks in the AG's office.
