Admits he fixed own parking tickets
Mr. Hubbard’s behavior during his tenure on Norwood’s payroll was at the center of a lawsuit filed by a former Norwood employee several years ago. The employee prevailed in the suit, and the City was forced to pay a hefty sum in damages.
4/25/07 UPDATE: Our thanks to the reader who just sent us this 4/18/00 Enquirer article and this one from 7/10/01 to jog our memories about Gary Hubbard’s checkered past as part of the Hochbein administration. Hubbard served as Norwood’s Service Director and was fired along with Safety Director Cliff Miller as part of a “cleaning house” effort by Hochbein in 2001. Former Law Director Bob Kelly provided a colorful quote at the time when he told the Enquirer, “the current Norwood administration is “a pile of manure and Joe (Hochbein) sits on top of it.” These two articles are must-reads for history buffs who’d like to take a stroll down Norwood's rich political memory lane.
