In a recent puff piece interview, Scientology PR Rep Pat Harney stated twice that Flag Land Base in Clearwater has 2,400 staff members. We mentioned this number on Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker. Bunkerite Panopea Abrupta posted the following in response:
Professor Bernadette Rigel-Cellard said there were 6,628 staff at Flag in Florida, according to numbers supplied to her in Nov. 2018. She published that in her article "The Visible Expansion ..." for The Journal of CESNUR, Volume 3, Issue 1 Jan. - Feb. 2019
The Church of Scientology told Professor Bernadette Rigel-Cellard that there were 6,628 staff at Flag in Florida. Dr. Rigel-Cellard published this number in the Jan-Feb 2019 CESNUR journal. Pat Harney stated there are 2,400 staff members in her July 2019 interview. This is a reduction of 4,228 staff members at Flag.
