You could have knocked me off of my chair with a feather when Rhett asked me at the workshop last Thursday what did I propose that we do to fund these two important programs. I’ve now thought about it and here are my thoughts.
We as a town are hemorrhaging money due primarily due to our forcing ill advised law suits which basically are the town suing itself. We can do both programs, the Basketball Camp and the summer youth program with $5000.00. Why not take the money from the legal account and drop the lawsuits. Sure it would cost us some money to pay back Helen but no where near as much money as continuing the lawsuits.
Let’s see. Which is most important to the citizens of the town. A basketball camp that would benefit the youth of our town or a summer program which will give our younger youth something to do all summer long or lawsuits which benefit no one except Stacy Tebo. Its a no brainer to me. Get out of the lawsuits and DON’T DO ANYTHING THAT WOULD PROMPT FUTURE LAWSUIT (FOLLOW THE LAW).
The lawsuits do not benefit the populace as a whole or even in part. No one benefits except the Attorney, Mr. Elkind. It is a crying shame. When all is said and done we, as a town will spend over $80,000.00 of money trying to justify Stacy’s actions on our behalf. Her actions were not on my behalf or anyone else that I can think of.
Get rid of the lawsuit, Lick our wounds and have a summer program and a basketball camp. I fail to see what the problem is. That’s the solution to our problem Rhett. Be a good attorney if you can for a minute and realize that the suits are costing us too much money for no reward.
If Lofty wants to do something for the town, do this simple thing. Get out of the lawsuits. Be a good manager and cut our loses. That is if you are man enough and heterosexual enough to do it. But are you going to continue to be a racist and hate your constituency. We all know you are a flake. Why not be a man and stand up for the town and to the people who have created this mess in the first place.
