BABBLING BROOKS ...

If Councilman Michael Brooks really said "Don't you think Morgan & Blanchard talked before to make sure the findings were conducive to Mr. Peel & Mr. Olson?", Mr. Morgan should demand either an apology, or an investigation to clear his name and that of Mr. Blanchard. Words, especially from an elected City official, have meaning. The implications of his words are very serious. I hope other members of Council will challenge him on this statement at the next meeting. I try hard to pull for Mr. Brooks, because I truly believe he is a man of the people, but he makes some very bizarre statements. Finally, he should stop criticizing Mr. Spence for his votes on Council. Mr. Spence has proven himself to be a man of conviction. Mr. Brooks is not his judge. Councilman Brooks should take control of his own behavior & words and leave Mr. Spence alone. Bill Hiemer

If Mr. Brooks said that

If Mr. Brooks said that attorney Norwood Blanchard conducted a “kangaroo” investigation and claiming Blanchard’s inquiry was superficial and his conclusions predetermined would speak to the integrity and reputation of that attorney. Is this defamation of his character?

Brooks will never be happy.

I do not believe that Mr.Brooks would've been happy no matter who conducted the investigation as long as it came to that conclusion.Everybody knows Brooks wants to get rid of the mayor.

He wants to get rid of the

He wants to get rid of the manager even more.

Where is Rachael Maddow now?

Brooks and Horton are pathetic.

City council is a joke!

Too bad we don't have a city council that can get over their color and work together! They sound more idiotic every time they open their mouths.

Call out those who deserve it.

I would appreciate it if people would stop lumping certain people's bad attitudes, behavior and ethics with the majority of council who do work together. I resent the implication that I am one of those who can't get over my color and work together. Call out those who deserve it by name.

We understand you are not part of the problem.

The culprits are obvious. Don't worry.

Oh No! Not the Conspiracy Theory again?

Both Brooks and Horton OK'd using Blanchard for the investigation. Of course, I'm sure that at the time they "just knew" that he would side with them. Now that the findings are NOT to "their" liking, it was suddenly all a conspiracy and the findings were planned from the start. Come on! Give a brother a break! On the plus side, their comments only more concretely confirmed that "you just can't fix stupid". The only "kangaroos" in this matter is Brooks and Horton.
