City Manager Fired for Creating “Culture of Fear”

Mary Kay Peck, the city manager of Henderson, NV, was recently fired after only 18 months on the job after creating what City Council members called “a culture of fear.” The council decided unanimously to fire Peck after holding an evaluation hearing in which council members criticized the city manager for intimidating employees with an abusive management style.

For example, Peck was accused of publicly embarrassing a number of employees, disclosing employees’ private medical information, and ordering employees not to inform the city council about severe budgetary problems that had developed.
