CTC places general manager on administrative leave

Paul Kelly, general manager of the Cordova Telephone Coop, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the cooperative’s legal counsel, the coop board announced in a statement released on April 3.

No reason was cited for the action.

“The CTC Board voted on March 6, 2017, to put the CEO on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by the cooperative’s legal counsel,” said William Osborn, president of the board. “The investigation is ongoing. It would not be appropriate to comment any further on this matter because of the investigation, and the fact that this is (a) personnel matter. The board will share further information with the membership as appropriate after the investigation is concluded.”
