Clarence Monday. You may remember Monday as Martinsville’s city manager before he left to go to Amherst County in January 2012. Monday recently announced his “retirement” in Amherst County early last month, however SouthsideCentral is confident that he’ll be officially hired by Pittsylvania County next Tuesday.
Monday’s Amherst County tenure was a bit rocky to start with as he filed an incident report regarding a “threatening phone call” from one of the members of the Board of Supervisors. No charges were ever filed and Monday was rightfully mocked by commentators regarding the incident. Amherst county has a bad trend of county administrators not lasting long. The average over the last few years has only been 2 years before they leave their position (usually while under fire from the Board of Supervisors).
Monday will inherit the job that was vacated by Dan Sleeper’s “sudden retirement” that happened with no reasonable explanation. He’s going to have his work cut out for him, that’s for sure.
