Tarrant Regional Water District Executive Director Jim Oliver took umbrage a few days back upon hearing that board member Mary Kelleher had spoken to a group of journalists and others at the University of Texas at Arlington on June 21 and blasted the water district for being uncooperative in providing public information.
...
Oliver knew about Kelleher's remarks because water district community relations specialist Linda Christie attended and reported back to her boss.
...
Oliver responded with an e-mail that same day disputing Kelleher's allegation and providing several years worth of statistics on open-records requests. The numbers show the agency generally responds in a timely manner, and "certainly disproves the intentional misrepresentations that are being circulated and the statements that were made at the UTA meeting," Oliver wrote.
Oliver sent the email to board members and staff, and to the law firm that represents the water district.
...
Oliver surely ground his teeth when Kelleher responded with an e-mail of her own, accusing him of spreading "blatantly false and defamatory statements."
...
Kelleher said Oliver was trying to muddy the waters with his statistics.

In a letter addressed to TRWD General Manager Jim Oliver and also sent to other district [...]

...
Kelleher attached to the letter a printout of e-mails between Basham and Oliver on May 6.
...
In his replies, sent from his water district e-mail account, Oliver called Basham a "loser" and said, "Imagine if you were ... bankrupt, with your house foreclosed and pretending to be a meteorologist with no education.
...
Reached by phone on Wednesday evening, Kelleher declined to go into any further detail about the confrontation with Oliver.
...
Additionally Kelleher asked for numerous documents relating to any real estate transactions between the water district and Oliver or any entity controlled or owned by him.
...
Oliver "advised Ms. Kelleher during a meeting later that day that requests for such information are typically addressed to the general manager and reviewed by general counsel for compliance with all laws," the statement said.
...
"Staff members confirmed that Mr. Oliver did not raise his voice during that discussion."
...
It's quite likely this just added a great deal to their normal workload and as their general manager I can see why Jim Oliver would inform her that requests of his employee's time be directed at him. That's his job. He certainly could have handled it better, but I think suggesting he needs "anger management" because she did not instantly get her way is hilarious, attention grabbing, and shows she is every bit as irascible.
...
No manager should respond to someone who oversees the organization to which they belong in the manner that Mr. Oliver did, period. The TRWD being a public entity it is required to have complete records of all meetings and if they don't they are in violation of the law and need to be accountable for those and any other violations. Also if Mr. Oliver has sold to or purchased land from TRWD and there are not accurate records of those transactions, then at the very least there is the appearance of inpropriety.
