City Paid $126K To Defend Kennedy

“I’m happy to put it to bed once and for all,” Kennedy said Friday. He estimates he spent at least $10,000 of his own money in the case, and the city covered legal bills on his behalf to the tune of $126,000, not counting many hours of city staff time. “It was a pretty long and costly matter for taxpayers and for me and my family,” Kennedy said. “But it’s done, and that’s a good feeling.” Scott Maben SR story here.

Question: Would you run for City Council again, if you were in Mike Kennedy's shoes?
