Is it of no coincidence that Drummond Company yanked support for Spring Valley School, a school for the developmentally disabled, 12 days after firing David Roberson?
Guess who works at Spring Valley School? David and Anna Roberson’s daughter (pictured above right).
Was Drummond President Mike Tracy trying to get her laid off?
Why the sudden viciousness against the Roberson family?
Mike Tracy ought to be ashamed and embarrassed.
The late-Garry Drummond would have backed the Robersons over the bafoons at Balch & Bingham that allegedly provided bad legal advice to Drummond and its officers in regards to the North Birmingham Bribery Scandal.
Even Garry Drummond’s heirs, who allegedly are in the middle of a contentious family battle over the control of the company, would agree.
Garry Drummond (pictured above), controversial but respected, was loyal to his employees above all.
Garry Drummond most likely would have sued Balch & Bingham after the conviction and be unrelenting in the pursuit of an award for legal malpractice.
Instead, Drummond Company’s leadership looks like it has foolishly jumped in bed with Balch & Bingham and cuddled up to a disgraced law firm.
Although one could understand Drummond Company phasing out Roberson from an active role in the company, Garry Drummond would have worked with David Roberson and his family to make sure they were provided with financial security for a family that was on the cusp of losing everything due to the alleged incompetence of Balch & Bingham.
And why would Garry do so?
Roberson, who successfully lobbied for the passage of the Coal Mine Economic Incentive legislation, was allegedly told by an executive at Drummond Company that Roberson’s successful efforts on the legislation had saved Drummond between $6 million and $8 million a year.
Loyalty, worth every penny.
