[Edit: Here is a Letter to the Editor we missed earlier. Very well written Mr. Bennett!]
We’re not sure if there is anymore comment to be made to this article, other than it probably wasn’t necessary to write. However, the article is well written and presents a fair view to both sides.
The fact is, a couple of constant complainers who cannot be happy no matter what happens (look for a future video of one of these people), went to the newspaper. They interviewed the involved councilmembers, researched the rules, and formed this article. They found nothing wrong with this practice.
We believe that these councilmembers should continue to avoid these situations because, while not illegal may not look good to the public. However, if you read the current comments on the article, people feel this is not an issue, they were elected for a reason, and they know the rules, so let them handle this duties as they best see fit. If this is a major issue for people, they will elect others when the time comes. If the current council does a good job, they will be reelected no matter who they choose to have a beer with.
