Donna Auth and Jeff Middlebrooks

As of last week, Thomaston-Upson Senior Center Director Donna Auth and T-U Recreation Department Athletic Superintendent Jeff Middlebrooks are no longer employed in their joint projects positions supervised by county management.

Auth, an 18-year-employee, reportedly resigned under pressure surrounding mismanagement of funds related to food services at the center. Audited transaction inconsistencies have been submitted to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, but Sheriff Dan Kilgore stated he thinks GBI focus is on the process of purchasing food items, not on any specific individual.

Kilgore said it is prudent to allow an outside, independent agency to investigate the matter to avoid any possibility of subjectivity.
