Mike Newton: Responds to Comments by Attorney Elmer George
Comments re article 76205 Letter Grant money should have stayed in Adair County, letter from Attorney Elmer F. George
The writer, Mike Newton, is the newest member of the Columbia/Adair County Utilities District.
I suggest we wait and see exactly what the actual numbers are.
I was not involved when the decision in question was made, however, I do not disagree at this time. It is obvious that there are some differences in opinions on what has, and what will be taking place.
We as commissioners are under oath to perform to the best of our ability, we are not required under oath to be perfect. Speaking for myself, I have absolutely no agenda for or against anyone, however, will not be intimidated by anyone whatsoever....engineers, contractors, lawyers, high ranking politicians, or anyone else that challenges proper ethics.
It bothers me that way too much attention is given to the political aspect of the district and not the hard working employees that are in the trenches every single day working to serve our community, regardless of conditions.
It would be nice if Mr. George had clarified who he was talking about in his comments? He was very concerned with our local economy....if a local attorney would have been hired, then he could have stayed in Marion County. --Mike Newton
