Schindelbeck responds to Hucks query

Huckleberries asked City Council candidate Toby Schindelbeck if he approved of the message represented in the flier posted on the Second Amendment Alliance Facebook page. Here's his response in its entirety:

"Are these actual facts? Did Ron Edinger vote against amending an ordinance that violates state law? Did he then change his vote once the Attorney General sent CDA a letter informing them of what Steve Adams and Greg Pruitt had already brought to city council attention? If this is what actually happened, then are you asking me if I approve of factual occurrences? In general, I support municipal government obeying state law. So if he voted against amending an ordinance so that it complied with state law, then I would not approve of his vote. That's just common sense.  A city cannot make an ordinance that violates state law.

"If Mr. Edinger did in fact do this, then I would have to wonder what, exactly, his 45 years of experience on the CDA city council is worth in practical application. Voting to keep an ordinance that violates state law, to the point when the Attorney General steps in, tells me that he is dangerously driven by his personal ideology. That should concern CDA voters."
