Former professor speaks out about city council controversy
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WZDX) - A former college professor is still searching for answers, after questioning the motives of a college and a local councilman.
Jeff Moseley says he wasn't tenured at Calhoun Community College because of an expansion at the college.
Jeff Moseley is questioning the ethics of a city councilman and Calhoun Community College.
The ordeal came to a head back in August when Councilman Will Culver walked out of a city council meeting, threatening legal action against a local radio host when he brought the issue up at the meeting.
Moseley says his tenure wasn't granted back in 2010, so his position could be given to Huntsville City Councilman Will Culver.
Moseley says Councilman Culver was in favor of an expansion of the college in Huntsville, something that not everyone was for.
Moseley says he asked Calhoun Community College why he didn't get tenured as a criminal justice professor, and was told his question couldn't be answered.
"It made me think that hey, this is just too close and maybe something about this isn't right. I understand the tenure issue, but it's just something that seems inappropriate about this," Moseley said.
Moseley says he wrote a letter this summer to the Attorney General and the State Board of Education, asking them to look into the issue.
"That's basically what we're doing. We're going to people who are in power to answer these questions, and that's basically what we're doing, we're going to these people in power to answer these questions, and everybody here that's involved is on public payroll. And I'm waiting on an answer. That's all I want is an answer, whether there's something to it or there's nothing to it," Moseley says.
He says if nothing is found, he'll drop the issue.
But all he wants is an answer.
We reached out to Councilman Culver and Calhoun Community College for comment, but did not hear back.
