Insult to Injury?


It's been quite a week in what's been quite a month for Councilman Steve Adams, who drew his fair share of attention recently for advocating the city go to an election to decide the fate of the wastewater treatment plant and the multi-million dollar upgrades it requires.

The pursuit of an election made the second-year councilman unpopular with the rest of the council, which preferred judicial confirmation to secure the funds.

Tense meetings on the topic lasted all March, which included arguing, finger pointing, a 911 call, alleged threats, shaking fists and swear words.

Add a parking ticket.

Not just left on a windshield, but posted online, to boot.

“I didn't expect that one,” Adams said Thursday of the parking ticket he received March 28 while attending a City Council workshop involving the sewer issue at the public library - a ticket he appealed, lost, and was posted online on a blog that has been critical of Adams every step of the wastewater way. “I was surprised.” More here. Tom Hasslinger, Cda Press

Do you think the things posted on this blog amount to a campaign to make Steve Adams look bad? And do you believe his statement that he doesn't pay attention to Huckleberries Online?
