14 thoughts on “Letter to the Editor: City of Carson berates employees while COVID-19 cases rise in our city

  1. You are so right! The city is falling apart because there is no strong leadership! The Directors and Assistants are afraid to oppose the city manager whose only strength is the gift of gab…..she talks constantly but does not produce because she lacks leadership skills and stiffles the performance of her subordinates. God help Carson!

  2. If the City of Los Angeles can get all of their Personnel staff to telecommute, I’m sure Carson can also. Have your IT folks look into getting Zscaler installed so you can access your desktop from home. Stagger in-office days so that employees will only need to come in once a week. Carson needs to talk to other cities to see what options are available. The City of Los Angeles is placing all employees that can’t telecommute on a paid administrative leave. Carson needs to do right by its employees.

  3. I think the residence of Carson should clean house. It’s a shame that the city of Carson has grown so much and everyone can’t even get alone. We don’t need this mark on us because those in charge can’t do what’s right for the employees. You only have to work with people you don’t have to take them home with you. Why is it so hard to just do the job you are responsible in doing.

  4. The mayor may be focused on the bus issue right now, but as an employee, he did make it known to staff and everyone that he and several other members of the City Council were concerned about the employees. He made it very clear that all employees were to be kept “whole” with respect to their pay during this crisis. The fault here lies with the City Manager and the Human Resources Director. The City Manager has no idea on how to manage a city. She only relies on the HR director for guidance, while there are many other long tenured employees she could turn to. If you were here with us as employees, you would easily see the ambitious nature of the HR director. She is completely disrespectful to the two Assistant City Managers as well as all staff and gets away with it because of her buddy, buddy relationship with the City Manager. The HR department is months behind on filling vacant positions and it’s because Faye Mosely cannot keep employees from leaving her department. All whom have left cite poor leadership, hostile working environment and an unwillingness to work for such a person as Faye. I digress….Back to the City Manager. The City Manager lacks the necessary qualities one should have and that would be incumbent upon the position, trust in those who are in lead positions, compassion for those who are working hard at something new, patience for those who are new and working hard and political indifference to understand the environment that is municipal government. The City of Carson and the employees of the City would be better served by removing the City Manager and the HR Director s soon as possible. This will be a step in the right direction by eliminating a personnel virus within City Hall first.

  5. Mayor Robles stated in his post: I was among the first to call for the cancellation of both private and public events at our community center.

    If that is the case, be sure not to approve agenda item regarding waiving of facility and equipment fees for easter grab n go event by councilwoman David Holmes.

  6. This letter hits the nail on the head. The Mayor/City Manager/Human Resources Director are all LIARS, continue to spew misinformation and do not care about their employees. Spread this article and expose these bastards.

  7. It seems that the City of carson doesn’t know how to treat their employees. Carson is not the only city checking temperatures. I hope the news outlets and media gets involved with the city of carson and sees the bullying from their HR director and the blind leading the blind. It’s election year, Mr. Robles, a lot of your carson employees live in Carson.

  8. Where to begin?

    To begin with, I wrestled with even addressing this anonymous letter – but to the extent a response will help dispel misinformation here it is.

    First and foremost, the public health and safety of ALL our residents and employees is my number one priority. In fact, it is priority number two and three as well. To this effort, I was among the first to call for the cancellation of both private and public events at our community center, and today we are the only City that requires ALL employees to wear nose and mouth coverings (i.e., masks) and have their temperature taken before even entering city hall. THE ONLY CITY!

    Likewise, regarding the suspension of our local bus service and my call for the suspension of mass transit, it also is based on the public health and safety of ALL residents and employees. Experts from all over the world agree that in order to really limit the spread of the virus all mass transit needs to be suspended. This is an undisputed fact. How anyone can think otherwise is irresponsible. A bus driver just died after complaining about being coughed on by a passenger, and likely infected many others on the bus. Here in LA County, many bus drivers are scared because they do not even have the most basic of protection like hand sanitizer.

    Make no mistake about it, more people will die unnecessarily the longer mass transit remains open, especially lower income and Black and Brown neighbors. I would much rather say ‘sorry for your inconvenience’ than ‘sorry for your loss.’

    1. So you’re not even talking about your employees. You’re more concerned about buses what about the employees. You like betting around the bush just like the city manager and the HR You can never answer a question when it comes to the employees of the city

  9. Statistics show that minorities (people of color) are in the largest demographic of people dying from covid-19. Could their be a correlation between who runs our cities and the poor response to this pandemic! I think your complaints should be sent to the governor’s office and all the news outlets to shine a light on the criminal behavior of the city’s management.

  10. Putting the city employees at risk is not good for their families! I have a few City of Carson employees as family members.

    Not good Mr. Robles… especially it being election year. Many in the community will remember this!

    1. Not only are city workers being forced to work so are other jobs in Carson we are being forced to work work during this virus epidemic. Security guards who are working in Carson, 8+ hours are forced to go to work and don’t have the luxury to call off or work from home.

  11. Let the city bus pick them up if their going to work at city hall or other government offices.let the city pay for their fare. That’s the lest the Mayor could do.thanks
