WE paid the City Manager’s Fine.

Just when I thought the corruption couldn’t get worse.  When Mr. Ward admitted that he illegally authorized city funds and resources to be used to influence a ballot initiative he was fined.

Mr. Ward then presented the $1000 fine (more on this on a different day) to the CITY for payment!  Yes, he violated the law, was defended by the city at no charge to Mr. Ward (but thousands and thousands of dollars to the taxpayers), lost and then had the gall to ask the city to pay.  And it did!

EVERY member now on the Council including Tony Anderson (an article on him and the Port Porn scandal coming soon) voted for the City to pay Mr. Ward’s fine except for recent Angle Lake addition Ladenburg.  To be fair though, Ladenburg was on the Lid Lift Committee at the time who I believe played a large role in the illegal actions.

It is sad to see how much this has cost us.  I will be doing an overall accounting in a future post and dig deeper into the players in the scandal.
