The resignation of the county finance director Friday was punishment by county leaders against employees who speak out in public, Frederick County Commissioner David Gray alleged Saturday. “It has retaliation written all over it,” Gray said. The county announced the resignation of John Kroll at 4:13 p.m. Friday. Gray said Commissioners President Blaine Young and commissioners Kirby Delauter and Billy Shreve forced Kroll out of his job over disagreements about statements of the county’s financial condition.
