Warner Robins employee appeals firing to administrative law judge

An administrative law judge heard the appeal Tuesday of a Warner Robins employee accused of peering into ceiling tiles above the late Mayor Donald Walker’s office.

Chris Armstrong, an information technology employee, appealed the firing, and her hearing Tuesday at City Hall was part of the city’s internal appeal process, City Attorney Jim Elliott said.

Michael Moore, a Warner Robins attorney who served as the administrative law judge, is expected to make a decision in about three weeks, Elliott said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was asked to look into the incident involving Armstrong and former City Clerk Stan Martin. The GBI found no criminal wrongdoing.

Martin and Armstrong were later fired by the mayor and council for unbecoming conduct.

Martin has maintained he did nothing wrong. Armstrong previously has declined to comment.
