Rick Werlin's false accusations and calls to the police put
me at risk of physical harm. Fortunately, the contract
clearly states that the district may not require me to put
myself in harm's way.
I believed (and still believe) that Werlin's meetings were
designed to intimidate me through further verbal abuse and
threats to my safety, and were possibly another set-up to
allow him to slander me again.
"I remind you that you have ignored numerous directives
since late August, 2001 requiring you to report for duty."

I would also like to remind you, Dr. Gil, that you have
ignored requests that Werlin's actions be investigated by
someone other than Werlin himself, and that my report of
threats to my safety be investigated. I have been
threatened both by Werlin and those he is working with and
Your disregard for my safety is extremely ironic, since I

Those reports were acted on without any investigation.
Intensifying the irony of this situation is the fact that on the

after those charges were first made, and even though those
charges STILL HAD NOT BEEN INVESTIGATED, you acted
again on those preposterous charges by trying to transfer
me, while at the same time ignoring my written requests
that my safety be protected.
Surely this district can be run in a more professional
"You have ignored requests
that Werlin's behavior be
investigated by someone other
than Werlin himself."
