Portsmouth City Manager Derek Allen has responded to the charges City Council presented against him.
Council fired Allen on Dec. 18. However, after a public response that pushed Council meetings into larger venues, Council rehired Allen but placed him on paid adminstrative leave.
After firing and rehiring Allen, both parties agreed to go to mediation at 9 a.m. Saturday. A public hearing was also set for Council’s regularly scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday.
A Facebook group, Friends Of Portsmouth, shared Allen’s response, which is attached below.
