Embattled Pacific Mayor Cy Sun is once again trying to get rid of his public safety director, John Calkins. This comes two weeks after a judge ordered Sun to reinstate Calkins and Pacific Police Lieutenant Edwin Massey, whom Sun had both suspended.
Sun gave Calkins notice of a Loudermill hearing for next Friday, three days after Sun's own recall election. A Loudermill hearing is part of the due process for a U.S. government employee prior to termination or severe discipline, and gives them the opportunity to present their side of the story.
Sun would still be in office until the results of the elections are ratified on July 9, two weeks after the election.
