Duffy Rodriguez and Bullying (separate topics, maybe)

I wanted to share two stories with everyone.  First story is a SFReporter article by Justin Horwath.    Please don't shed a tear for poor old Duffy. She will be spending more time with her family.  If we could all voluntarily spend more time with our families we would be so lucky.
View it here.

The second story is a Santa Fe New Mexican article by Staci Matlock about a state employee who committed suicide because of bullying at PRC.  It is a very sad story but one that needs to be shared.
Read the story here.

If you are being bullied at work please email me.  It is a serious problem at DOH and we should address.   If things are getting you down please talk someone.  Don't let people who are insecure with their ownselves make you think anything less of yourself.  We must move forward with out efforts to cleanse DOH of this toxic environment.

What your thoughts?  Share them below.

  1. My condolences to the family of Mrs. Prada. How bad must it have been for this poor lady? I hope that our government will see this a as a wake up call. This abuse, mistreatment, and harrassment of employees must stop. This is a very real problem.

    1. DOH bullies alot of employees they make them feel like they are nobody I know I see it everyday of my life in the work place and so does HR people but they do nothing to protect these employees.I can name supervisors that are doing this right now but I'm going to let the anonymous people put the list of them and see who they list and then I will let you know my list. DOH let's be strong not weak like DOH wants us to be.

    2. Doesn't seem like anyone wants to start naming names...even under "Anonymous". Is J. Peacock on your list? Ms. Peacock's been quite active in numerous retaliatory & manipulative disciplinary actions, questionable financial plays, and concealing & encouraging program managers’ indiscretions. But when faced with accepting responsibly for those actions, throws her unsuspecting co-conspirators to the wolves somehow maneuvering herself out of harm’s way. However, the backs she has stabbed have started pulling the knives out of each other and are now speaking out on the down low and SPO & HRB is starting to notice. Her days of quietly hiding at the bottom of the barrel in the “Circle of Trash” seem to be coming to an end. That’s how quiet she’s been all these years, no one ever seemed to notice she was a key player in the “Magic Circle.”

  2. Anita Westbrook of DOH-SATC has to be one of the state's biggest bullies. So is Dr. Babk Mirin, Brad McGrath's expensive contract psychiatrist.

  3. I read the link to the Santa Fe Reporter article. I too question what Duffy meant by helping Deputy Chief of Staff Ryan Cangiolosi make millions. It is obvious that she influenced the heads of the "Circle of Trust" by teching them to do whatever they have to, to survive. I never questioned Duffy's intelligence, she knows numbers. However, something tramatic must have occured in her childhood that caused her to be such a cold hearted, nasty human being that does not care about anyone else's feelings except for those that are her meal ticket. As far as bullying is concerned it is alive and well at DOH. I saw it firsthand under Duffy and the "Circle of Trust." If you played Duffy, Mike's and Bernice's crooked games there was a good chance you were going to get a promotion or an in-band raise. If you questioned any of them or told them the truth, you were punished by being ignored or talked to like a dog. Duffy is gone from DOH, but the tradition continues under her proteges. ASD still plays favoritism and rewards bureaus and employees who they LIKE. If they don't like someones look, sexual orientation, or values, that person will be moved or harrassed until they either quit or transfer to a different Agency. Bullying at the work place must be addressed by the media the same way as bullying in school has been. Sad that both have resulted in people committing suicide. To the Prada family God Bless You. If anything good can come out of this, hopefully, it is, that this administration will investigate bullying within the workplace to prevent such tragedies from occuring in the future.

      Anonymous,

      Well said! Duffy was talking about what the Martinez Administration is really doing in Office. $$$$$. Martinez is no different than Richardson. Duffy is used to helping their ilk get what they want, that had been her path to success. It is and will be a lonely existence as time goes by for her. The good news is she no longer has the Circle back!

    2. The good part is I know Duffy pulled her retirement out of PERA a few years back. That means as taxpayers we won't have to pay that scarecrow for the rest of her life out of taxpayer money. I still remember the picture of Kennedy in her office as well as Mulligan having his little one too. Their hero was another shuck and jive artist like them, lol.

  4. Unfortunately bullying is the behavior model set by the governor herself and her administration.

  5. Why has the DOH Runnels staff become so subdued? Has the suppression of the tyrants brought upon you so much fear as to silence you completely? Have you been forced to witness too many escorted out and are now conditioned to remain quiet and say nothing? Management has their names in lawsuits, on retaliatory dismissal forms and disciplinary actions, and programs are being subjected to financial audits and yet still it goes on. At the very least, use this forum to shout out our concerns or contact Staci at the New Mexican with our stories. If you care about our programs and our patients, remember what brought you into Public Health in the first place. Don’t let the “bullies” keep us from what’s in our hearts. They’re really hurting the children, elderly and disabled patients who have entrusted us to care for them. Some management have already ran, some are still here. How some maintain their longevity is short of a miracle. It’s the strength of the “Circle of Trust”. It's still here. But it must come to an end for once and for all.

    1. You know and I know that the "Circle of Trash" monitors this website religiously, which is funny considering they behave like they have no religion. They believe that by being quiet that all the bad they have done or created does not exist. It does though, and it will not go unnoticed and will eventually catch up to them cause Circle, Gods gonna get you for that, he knows what your running from he knows where your at!!! I'm sure that Old Brad has told them, " Don't pay attention to anything that is being said and it will go away." Guess what we are her and we are not going away anytime soon.

    2. I just wish people would speak up an be themselves instead of being a follower it's really not that bad at least you go on living knowing that you weren't a follower and you actually sleep better at night. You don't have to treat certain people bad because you don't want your boss, your supervisor, or your so called friends to think that you are not part of them because you talked to certain people. Bosses, supervisors shame on you to make your employees feel like they have choices to make, and shame on you employees for not speaking up and being yourself even when you know deep down in your heart that it's wrong.

    3. Very well said. I know pressure has been put on employees not to speak to certain individuals or speak out; I myself have been told who I was "allowed" to associate with; and seeing others hurt out of spite and watching lives ruined is heartbreaking. It's hard to sleep at night or gather the strength to go to work each day.

    4. I know I agree with you that this needs to stop because this is like bullying to me it's just not right it can actually make a person go into a deep depression and think crazy thoughts and it really brings your self esteem in the work place down. I know employees that are going thru this as I speak and it hurts me to see that HR knows whats going on but really does nothing. I think we need some experience people in that department that can handle situations like this that have gotten totally out of control so they can address the issues instead of ignoring what they hear. And Ty I hear he doesn't have much of an HR back ground so I think it needs to start from here and then get qualified people that can help in situations like this. Don't you agree?

  6. Does 'Old Brad' really think just wishing things away will work? There's still the Ortiz and Smith lawsuits alive in the courts. And how many others being filed? What about the MCP employees who were "escorted" out? Or the employees bullied to the point of walking out? Their voices will still be heard. No, 'Dear Old Brad' and the loyal Circle, things don't just go away.

    1. Sounds about right, Duffy has always been a LIAR. She once told me she knew what my bureau did and how important we were, but yet, never stepped foot down there once to analize what the needs of our operation were. Instead she just took away positions to give to the evil ones. I was hoping she would leave out of state, damn. Isn't Cangiolosi at UNM. Maybe they can make millions together by embezeling from UNM. Richardson all over again, shame on you Susana.

    2. It's true about the UNM job. As Simon Cowell puts it, "Pathetic."

      Former Aide To Governor Takes Job At UNM
      By James Monteleone / Journal Staff Writer on Fri, Dec 14, 2012

      A second member of Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration has left state government for a high-ranking — and better-paying — job at the University of New Mexico.


      Dorothy “Duffy” Rodriguez, former Department of Finance and Administration deputy secretary, starts work at UNM today as the executive assistant and chief administrator to university President Bob Frank.

      The job is a position newly created by Frank as part of a reorganization of staff in the president’s office, UNM spokeswoman Cinnamon Blair said. The salary is $127,500 a year, about $19,000 a year more than Rodriguez earned in state government.

      Rodriguez has worked in various state government roles since the late ’70s, including time as the Taxation and Revenue Department secretary under Gov. Bill Richardson.

      Rodriguez resigned her DFA job in the Martinez administration in late November, saying she wanted to do something different and spend more time with her son, who is in college.

      “Ms. Rodriguez has a superb track record demonstrating competency in the governance and management of complex private and public institutions, and will be an excellent addition to our team,” Frank said in a statement.

      Rodriguez could not be reached for comment.

      Rodriguez’s move to UNM comes weeks after Martinez’s deputy chief of staff, Ryan Cangiolosi, left the Governor’s Office to accept a newly created position at UNM’s Health Sciences Center as executive projects director. For Cangiolosi, the UNM job included a $10,000-a-year raise over his state employment.

      The UNM spokeswoman said the position Rodriguez was hired to fill was publicly posted for a two-week period between mid-October and early November. UNM had 25 qualified applicants for the job, and three of them were interviewed before Rodriguez was hired, Blair said.
