One of the theories about the payout to our former city attorney is that they city is paying her hush money to keep her from talking about various things that may have happened during her watch.
I don’t know anyone who believes that she deserves the payout as part of a retirement deal.
If the hush money theory is true what does this say about our former city attorney?
As citizens we have the right to expect our city attorney to see to it that all laws are obeyed. Yes, she was supposed to represent the council members and the mayor but she should not have allowed them to violate a law.
Are we to believe that she saw things that she was willing to remain silent on as long as she had a job and only brought them up in order to blackmail them into a settlement?
We deserve better
