Willie Smith, the Kennesaw Public Works Department employee who sued the city two years ago, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the work environment has improved in the two years since the city agreed to pay $1.8 million to settle the lawsuit.
Smith, Stanley Mitchell, and Gary Redd claimed that they were subjected to racial discrimination while on the job. Their lawsuit listed a number of city officials as defendants, including Mayor Mark Mathews, then-City Council member John Dowdy, sanitation supervisor Tim Letner, and public works director Woody McFarlin.
