$10,000.00 For Haddix's Slander Suit
On Thursday Council will vote to approve a consent agenda containing what I believe to be Mayor Haddix's attempt to hide the legal expenses he incurred from being sued by a former mayor. First, it is my understanding that the mayor was sued, not the city. Second, it was our current mayor who slandered the former mayor outside his official duties as mayor and should shoulder the responsibility for his actions. Third, since the mayor has already been reimbursed to the tune of $9969.40 in March of this year and yet to be approved by Council, the disbursement of such funds prior to being approved is, at best, a bad business practice.
One need only to download the agenda packet for the next Council meeting to verify.
