Regarding the latest investigation at City Hall, the investigator is kidding — of course, she has to be! Where was the investigation?
Because the mayor is running for office, he cannot possibly be guilty of intimidation? That's off limits? The investigator, at her own admission, chose not to interview a witness in close proximity of Mayor Skip Priest's office who actually heard some of what was happening in that office. That's outrageous and what's more, that was not an investigation. It leads me to think this was an inside job.
How dare the investigator, without any evidence, intimate that somehow Councilmember Kelly Maloney or Deputy Mayor Jim Ferrell leaked the information of the investigation to The Mirror. Come on! Those two individuals are professionals.
What needs to happen now, to stop this nonsense, is the person who leaked it to The Mirror must come forward.
Also, those who have complained to others within the city and outside the city walls about the mayor's intimidation should man up and come forward. You know who you are. You cannot just twiddle your thumbs — innocent parties are being blamed. Get to it.
