Ald. Simpson Critical Over City Employees Appearing on TV Show

A Springfield alderman is critical of a recent TV appearance by two city employees… including Mayor Mike Houston’s director of human resources.


The segment on the “Steve Harvey Show” featured a city worker getting tips on how to ask for a raise or promotion.


The show then brought out HR director Melina Tomaras-Collins to hear the employee’s pitch.


On the show, Tomaras-Collins said she would recommend that the mayor grant the promotion and raise.


Alderman Gail Simpson says that was inappropriate and sends a wrong signal to other employees.


But Tomaras-Collins says employee Sara Taylor deserves the bump… and sees nothing wrong with supporting her on a nationally-televised show.
