From the DNJ web site,
After an hour-long closed meeting to discuss an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission charge filed by former employee Gary Dooley, the board met publicly for roughly five minutes Wednesday.
During the public portion of the meeting, the board voted unanimously to enter into conciliation and settlement discussions with the EEOC regarding Dooley. And the board voted 3-1 to suspend Moshea.
Alderman Senna Mosley, who voted against the suspension, said she thought a suspension wasn’t serious enough and indicated that she wanted him to be fired.
