Board admonishes Port Director for ‘gross misconduct’ but opts against ‘draconian’ dismissal

The Port Authority board admonished Port Director Clement Reid for actions revealed in the Office of the Auditor General’s report, but stopped short of his dismissal.

In a three page letter dated February 21st, the board advised Mr. Reid his ‘gross misconduct’ would justify his dismissal under contract terms. Ultimately, the board took what it termed a “less draconian” approach, taking into account Mr. Reid’s long tenure with the port and his readiness to acknowledge his mistakes.

While Mr. Reid will be given a chance to clean up the mess, the board says any further misconduct could result in termination.
