Mayor Wants Taxpayers to Pay His Attorney Fees – Part Two

Recently in the mail, you received some literature from us.  One piece was an email from the township administrator on behalf of the staff to the township attorneys and Council President, stating that the mayor was now trying to harass the CFO into paying his lawyer’s bill, even after he was denied by the Council.  The Council denied his request because they are not legally allowed to do so, as per our Defense and Indemnification Ordinance.  Nor should they, as the lawsuit was a complete waste of time and money.

But apparently the mayor doesn’t let the law stop him, does he?  In his conversation with the CFO, he muttered many inappropriate comments such as telling her to put his bill in the system to pay regardless of the fact that it is was not approved and he also stated that the council will never know it was paid.  Many of you have expressed to us how deeply troubling you find these comments and actions of his to be, and we agree.  We will be looking into this matter further and will keep you posted on how we can deal with this situation.

In the meantime, we will continue to come directly to you to obtain your signature, just contact us by phone or email anytime.

Thank you for your continued support!
