Palestine Mayor Fires Ellis a Second Time; City Employee Missing

PALESTINE, TX–Palestine Mayor Bob Herrington made a remarkable move on Tuesday when he announced that he had summoned former city manager Wendy Ellis to City Hall and fired her a second time.

“She was so bad, I didn’t think one firing was enough,” Herrington told The Dogwood Tale. “Sometimes, you just have to do it again, to make sure it sticks since she was hired twice, you know, let’s cover all the bases.”

Herrington was not happy that he had to fire Ellis a second time; however, he stressed the need to make certain that she understood.

In a press release from the city, Interim City Manager Mike Alexander said, “I applaud the mayor’s decision to fire Wendy again. In fact, immediately after the second firing, I instructed officers from the Palestine Police Department to tase her on her way out of City Hall for the last time, that is if the mayor doesn’t decide to fire her a third time.”

Ellis was fine with the second firing.

“I was already fired, now I’ve been fired again,” Ellis said. “I hope the second firing comes with a second severance package at the cost of taxpayers,” Ellis said with a wink as she was helped into her car before speeding away.

Herrington said that he is uncertain if he will fire Wendy a third time, but left the option on the table.

District 1 Councilman Adam Harding said that firing Ellis multiple times was something he hadn’t considered, but found the idea “doable.”

District 5 Councilman Doug Smith seemed shocked when he learned that Ellis had been fired the first time. “I certainly don’t remember voting to fire her,” he said. “I would have never done such a thing! If I had it to do over again, I wouldn’t have fired her, but since she’s been fired twice I’m not sure that I can undo two firings, so we’ll just have to accept it for what it is.” Smith then immediately made a motion to re-hire Ellis; however, he was reminded that he was being interviewed and that it wasn’t an actual council meeting, before returning to wave his confederate flag at cars passing by the Confederate Memorial Veterans Plaza.

Laura Westgate, the city’s communications manager, has been missing since the first firing of Ellis and still hasn’t surfaced after the second firing.

“We don’t know where Laura is,” Herrington said. “If anyone should see her, please call City Hall immediately.”

    1. Be careful Ricky with what you say to ppl you don’t know… Be very careful.
      I don’t know the lady, would not know her if she walked up to me. But what I do know is some of your post is your way of putting ppl down, talking crap and thinking it’s funny or that you amuse ppl.
      You have your right to your opinion but so do I and I thought what you posted was crap

    2. **”You have your right to your opinion but so do I and I thought what you posted was crap”**

      But if I don’t like your opinion I am going to threaten you and tell you that it is the stupidest crap on the internet !!!

    3. Yeah Michael, that’s how it works, a person has the right to post crap, I have the right to my opinion to call it that.
      And telling someone to be careful is not a threat, lol Wow

    4. OK…I will take the bait. What did you mean by “Be careful Ricky with what you say to ppl you don’t know… Be very careful. ” ?? I am not defending the Mintonator, he needs no help, I am just curious what that phrase meant.

    5. ……and I am just asking in real friendly, curious minded, smiling sort of way….don’t want any trouble sir. I have already been cursed out and worse this week, trying to stay safe out here in the internet wilderness.

    6. The guy that got so mad earlier this week looked like this…. You, on the other hand, look a lot more growed up and serious…..I don;t want no trouble boss man !

    7. That meant that he made a very derogatory remake towards me on his comment. Very uncalled for, childish, for me posting my opinion And my suggestion for him to be careful what he says to people he know nothing about.

    8. OK….later Mr. Stanly. I have been up for almost 24 hours due to shift work. I am going to quit while I am not in danger or making anyone seriously mad. You FB people have fun while I catch up on my sleep, but remember this : It is just Facebook, not the real world. If any of us were even close to ‘normal’ we would not even be on this warped medium.

  1. Can I have her shoes? I thought they were really cute in the picture of her in the bathroom stall.
