IS IT TRUE last week it was announced that the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility Department named a new communications director, whose role is to inform the public about the millions of dollars worth of upgrades projects citywide? …Ella Johnson-Watson has been part of Mayor Winnecke’s communications staff since he took office, has moved to the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility Department? …her salary is now being paid by the Water and Sewer Utility department budget and we wouldn’t be surprised that Ms. Johnson-Watson didn’t receive a hefty salary increase when she accepted this new position? …about seven (7) years ago the City-County Observer had a disagreement with Ella Johnson-Watson concerning an embargo news issue? …ever since that disagreement, we have received very few news articles from the Mayor’s office? …starting today we are going to make sure that we receive every news release generated by the Evansville Water and Sewer Department new Communications Director?
