Goddard complaint goes to mediation

January 5, 2006

Albany-- Albany leaders and civic center director Mattie Goddard will mediate her discrimination complaint. A mediator from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will meet with both sides Wednesday morning.

The-66- year-old Goddard filed a EEOC complaint claiming the city manager was discriminating against her because of her age, race and sex.

Goddard never received a bad job appraisal until the new city Manager, Alfred Lott, evaluated her in November. In that evaluation, she was ranked ineffective in all categories.

Goddard has threatened to sue the city if she's fired. The city attorney says the mediation can help avoid litigation.

But if the city and Goddard cannot reach common ground, the case could go to court.
