Staff revolt at City Council President Clarkson's office?
Shana Rose Reporting
City Council President Jackie Clarkson said her staff left City Hall and walked out on her, opting not to return to her office today after Thursday's council meeting.
"I was, you know, just giving orders 'Do this, do that. Be here, be there.' And you know, they're just tired of that," Clarkson says, "So they didn't like it and they told me so, so I told them to take a break."
Clarkson also told WWL-TV "I work them too hard."
One staffer returned to handle the phones today. (Clarkson's office usually has five fulltime staffers.)
Clarkson said a conversation with her staff got heated at the Thursday Council meeting, sparking the break.
