Springfield’s Director of Workforce Development Resigns

Springfield’s Director of Workforce Development has abruptly resigned.

Sally Payne became the director in 2021 after holding the position on a interim basis for a year and a half, and had been employed with the city since 2008.

Payne tells radio station KSMU four city leaders questioned her on Wednesday about allegations she gave prescription drugs to other employees.

Payne says she takes Adderall medication for a diagnosed condition of ADHD, but denied giving the drug to other staff members.
