Fired Jail Manager to be Reinstated

The lead project manager for the North County Jail will be getting his job back ​— ​at least for the time being ​— ​after he was fired last summer under controversial circumstances. Grady Williams sued the county over his termination, claiming he was discriminated against after disclosing he had advanced cancer. The county, however, said he was fired for misconduct and insubordination and has sued its own Civil Service Commission after the commission ruled that Williams committed no wrongdoing and should be reinstated. Williams will resume his post as the matter works its way through courts.
