FLINT, MI  Former city administrator Natasha Henderson claims she was fired after reporting Mayor Karen Weaver may have been telling staff to direct water crisis donations to her own personal funds.

.

Henderson filed a federal lawsuit Monday, May 9, in Detroit U.S. District Court, claiming she was fired from her position after asking the city attorney’s office to investigate claims Weaver may have been telling city staff and volunteers to send potential water crisis donors to her own personal account, rather than the fund managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.

.

City spokeswoman Kristin Moore declined comment on the allegations.

.

“The mayor and city staff do not comment on pending litigation,” Moore said.

.

Weaver could not be reached for comment.

.

Moore directed further questions to attorney Kendall Williams, who Moore said will handle the case for the city. Williams could not be reached for comment.

.

“Natasha Henderson was an excellent city administrator,” said her attorney, Katherine Smith Kennedy.

.

The lawsuit claims Weaver’s executive assistant Maxine Murray reported around Feb. 9 to Henderson that “she feared going to jail” after Weaver instructed her and a city volunteer to direct donations from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s Safe Water/Safe Home Fund to a different fund, named “Karenabout Flint.”

.

Murray could not be reached for comment.

.

The lawsuit claims Murray allegedly told Henderson that she was specifically directed to tell donors and potential donors step-by-step how to donate to the Karenabout Flint fund through its website, rather than instruct them in the steps to donate to the Community Foundation’s fund.

.

State records do not show Karenabout Flint as a registered political action committee.

.

The Community Foundation of Greater Flint administers Safe Water/Safe Home Fund to provide emergency relief for households with damaged plumbing and service lines as a result of the water crisis. This program is also used in the selection process for the first phase of the city’s Fast Start Lead Line Replacement Program

.

“The Community Foundation of Greater Flint administers the Safe Water Safe Homes Fund,” the agency’s spokeswoman, Mary Jo Herbig, said in a statement. “Flint native and professional football player Brandon Carr established the fund earlier this year to provide funds to replace plumbing in qualified households in Flint affected by the water crisis.”

.

However, the Flint City Council approved a resolution during its Jan. 25 meeting calling for the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create “a Safe Water, Safe Home Campaign Fund to receive gifts intended for the maintenance and restoration of the City of Flint’s water distribution infrastructure as it relates to the provision of safe, clean water for Flint water customers,” according to city records.

.

The resolution was signed by Weaver and Henderson. It was eventually approved by the state-appointed Receivership Transition Advisory Board.

.

Henderson claims she told the city attorney’s office Feb. 9 that the redirection of the charity funds should be further investigated by then-Interim City Attorney Anthony Chubb.

.

The lawsuit alleges Henderson reiterated her concerns in a Feb. 10 email to Chubb, asking him to “promptly initiate an investigation of this matter in your capacity.” She further asked for advice on appropriate actions she could take to protect employees from potential retaliation for reporting such allegations.

.

Chubb allegedly replied, “I will take prompt action and advise you later today.”

.

However, Henderson claims she again emailed Chubb on Feb. 12 after not receiving a further response again reached out to the interim city attorney for an update, telling him “this is a very serious matter.”

.

Chubb could not be reached for comment.

.

Within hours, Henderson says she was called into Weaver’s office and told that she was being fired because Weaver had met with state officials and was told that the state could no longer fund Henderson’s salary.

.

The lawsuit claims Henderson told Weaver she was paid by the city and not the state. Weaver did not respond and demanded Henderson turn in her keys and remove all personal effects from her office.
