I do not know what the litigation and indictment outcome will be for Dwight Brown, the officers and/or the directors of Cobb EMC. Do not forget that the employees of Cobb EMC are the foundation of the company. There is something negative about Cobb EMC in the newspaper almost every day.
As a former employee of Cobb EMC, I can say that the employees of Cobb EMC are some of the best people around. They are hardworking, generous and caring people. I do know that this lawsuit and indictment of Mr. Brown has caused these people much anguish.
If the efforts are successful in their takeover of Cobb EMC, the rumor is that these men have said they will reduce salaries, do away with benefits and outsource most of the jobs (India?). This would be a great disservice to all of the Cobb EMC employees and to the members of the EMC who have received courteous, immediate and caring service from them. Have they considered that the impact it would have on Cobb and surrounding counties? Should these employees lose their jobs and benefits, it will affect the business, entertainment, financial centers, Cobb County and surrounding counties not to mention the families that have suffered the economic upheaval of the past years.
I am a former employee of Cobb EMC who had to retire due to health problems. When I was in intensive care and in a coma for two weeks, the employees of Cobb EMC came and sat with my family, brought food for them, prayed for me, phoned to check on my status and raised a "love" offering for me. When I came out of the coma and was stabilized, they took turns coming to visit me. When I was released from the hospital, they sent flowers, called often and were caring friends. The Human Resource department quickly handled the paperwork associated with "short and long term" disability. There was never any hassle with the insurance due to their expedient work.
Did you know that Cobb EMC has a special fund to help people who cannot pay their utility bill due to circumstances beyond their control? This fund paid my electric bill for two months and it was greatly appreciated and was an enormous blessing to me. This fund has assisted many, many people and is a great service to the community.
"For every action, there is a reaction" to quote. I hope the members of Cobb EMC appreciate the employees of Cobb EMC and consider the ramifications of this lawsuit and indictment on their lives as well as the Cobb EMC employees. I send kudos to all the employees of Cobb EMC for jobs well done and for being the wonderful people they are.
