NORWALK, Conn. – A long-time member of the administrative staff at Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now (NEON) is no longer with the agency.
Mary Mann, recently described as chief program officer, was not at Monday’s Board of Directors meeting. NEON Communications Director Scott Harris said Wednesday that she no longer works there. He did not provide details.
NEON board Chairman Mike Berkoff did not respond to a request for comment.
Mann is the sister of departed NEON chief Joseph Mann. In July, her title was workforce development director. She received substantial raises under interim CEO and President Pat Pheanious Wilson, which was attributed to a change in job responsibilities.
NEON’s board voted Monday to dismiss former interim CEO and President Chiquita Stephenson. Mann was still working on NEON on Nov. 12.
Lisa Cooper, who in January was described as director of administration, was also terminated according to state Sen. Bob Duff (D-Norwalk), who said he got the information from NEON interim CEO and president Tommie Jackson.
