The law firm of Frank & Finger, P.C., which is representing fired city employee Terri Velasquez, issued a statement a few minutes ago after receiving “numerous inquiries” from the news media.
“Ms. Velasquez believes that the best way to respond to these inquiries is by issuing a press statement.”
Here’s part of the statement:
“There is still a hope by Ms. Velasquez that her situation can be resolved in an amicable fashion. In the past, Ms. Velasquez, through her lawyers, has invited the City to meet and resolve her situation. The invitation to meet has never been accepted. Ms Velasquez wants the City to know that the invitation to meet and resolve her situation is still open. She hopes that the City now understands that her claims are legitimate and need to be fairly and appropriately addressed. This would include reinstating Ms. Velasquez to her former position with the City, or alternatively, offering her an equivalent position to what she previously held.”
