CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- The Mecklenburg County Commissioners fired County Manager Harry Jones during a meeting Tuesday night.
In an interview with WBTV, Jones says "I've used the word I'm at peace and I really am – I use the word relief."
Jones say he knew he was the cause of factions on the county commission board. He says he and his attorney were trying to negotiate a new deal with commissioners. But then Tuesday night happened.
"It really doesn't matter what is behind it" says Jones. "It could be a variety of things that are behind it. It really doesn't matter because I serve at pleasure of the board."
But Jones admits he "was a little blind sided by what happened on Tuesday."
At the meeting, the commissioners did not give a reason for Jones' sudden firing.
WBTV has learned the botched revaluation is one reason Jones lost his job.
Is he angry?
