Thanks to the link supplied by the Spokesman-Review, I was able to watch most of the meeting conducted by the Spokane Board of Health regarding the precipitous and illegal firing of Dr. Lutz. I left not with a negative impression of Dr. Lutz, but with Amelia Clark and most of the board itself.
Clark is not a doctor but an officious administrator, who may have board support but not the community’s.
I also have serious questions about the kind of organizational structure that would cause so much confusion. What kind of supervision does Dr. Lutz actually require? A good boss is happy with her subordinate who does good work. It reflects well on the entire organization. Dr. Lutz is so good at what he does, the petty accusations seemed like mud-slinging. It leaves me wondering what the real reason is. It’s politics, plain and simple.
The mud is on the accusers’ faces. Fire Clark and the board; keep Dr. Lutz.
