The Miami Herald Reports: Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, will be able to take about eight additional months of paid leave from her county job, thanks to the generosity of Miami-Dade County employees.
Fulton, who has worked at the county housing authority for 23 years, collected $40,825 in donated vacation time, county records show.
The county commission passed a resolution in April allowing county employees to donate their vacation time to Fulton or Trayvon’s aunt, Yolanda Knight Evans, a water and sewer customer service representative.
Records show 192 county employees gave Fulton some of their hours, and 70 people donated to Knight Evans. The donations for Fulton added up to 1,362 hours — meaning she can take 34 paid weeks off. Trayvon’s aunt collected nearly nine weeks.
County records show Fulton, who earns $68,768 a year as an administrative officer, used funeral leave, four weeks of accumulated sick leave and 60 hours of vacation after her son’s Feb. 26 death. She also took two days of unpaid furlough.
The County Commission resolution allowing donated time was approved in April, so she did not get to tap that source of time off until last week’s pay period.
Fulton is expected to appear before the County Commission Tuesday to thank the county for its support. She was in London this week and unavailable for comment. (read more)

Article exerpt…. it has also led to the emergence of a new alliance between civil activists in Britain and the United States who want to create an international campaign against the tendency of both police and the pubic in general to make assumptions about people purely because of their outward appearance or race….
