SUNDAY, June 7, 2020 — Natasha Atkinson was let go as a member of Mayor Andy Schor’s personal staff in February. In a recorded video interview, she paints a picture of an office in which the leadership did not respond to her suggestions for ways to improve race relations within the office and with the public. Her suggestions were ignored – and she said she started receiving the silent treatment from the staff. Then she pointed out what she believed was credit card abuse. She was fired without explanation. (The city still has not responded to City Pulse’s request for an explanation.) She spoke to City Pulse’s Berl Schwartz.
