We all love Sandy in that roll; that is not in question. She will be missed and there will be some very big shoes to fill.
I do not have any of the facts or the "Other Side" however, has anybody considered what the legal responsibility for the event and the county would be if Sandy fell again or if she hurt herself during the set up and administration of the event.
In my experience, government HR departments are very serious of poetical liability, exposure and the role of employees and consultants. It is likely not Sandy that the problem generated from but the circumstances of her condition and her status as an employee.
Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. Address your concerns at the event yes but I do not think Sandy would what her baby boycotted due to her.
See every body there..
