A sad display

Published: Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 12:24 PM.

Sad that Williams would join the cue of outrage at the out-of-county campaign contributions received by a BOCC candidate this year, when Williams ran in 2004 and 2008 behind a boatload of dollars from out of the county.

Including the donations from an individual and company Williams later brought in as a vendor for the employee health insurance fray.

Sad that would not come up, that Williams’ memory would be so short.

And yet that issue was beaten and beaten, despite the wise words of Commissioner Ward McDaniel who did happen to inject that campaign contributions were a personal right and privilege.

Not everybody lost their senses.

Sad that Williams would allow any member of the public to address an item that wasn’t on the agenda and to continue to reveal details of a State Attorney’s investigation and then join her, Williams’ repeatedly saying he had worn a wire as part of the investigation.

Sad that after that investigation was closed on Oct. 16, a request to see the case file was met with the statement that based on information provided after the meeting the case was reopened, the file unavailable.
