Support your accusation

Support your accusation

To the party who made the comment last week regarding city officials and employees (Steven Wolff); I would like to see (as would our entire community) the documentation that supports your accusation where you state: “clearly our administrator and finance director are financially deficient, at least that is a term used by LarsonAllen, the firm that does the annual review of the city’s accounting.”

Needless to say, if you do have written proof of this statement, this is troubling for our city and for the firm referenced. Being on the council now for over a year, I am finding quite the opposite of your accusation. I am extremely thankful for all of the staff in this city. I am amazed at the volume and quality of the service they perform for us all. Obviously your accusation is very serious, has legal implications, and begs our investigation into the statement you have made.

Please support your accusation soon, either here within our paper, or to me personally, and I will direct your response to the proper channel.

Thank you.
