A pox on both (all) their houses.
Those interested in serving the community's needs should be spending their time and money on making lives better through improved and more efficienct services.
This is just the kind of fighting and bickering, now combined with legal costs, that make people not want to step up for public office in the first place.
Both sides need to get out out of this sideshow of animosity they seem to be stuck in. Both continue to feed time and energy into the wrong things. Shame!
This is not a 2 sided case of "fighting and bickering" but, instead a unilateral attack by one person against another. I do not believe that Ms. Kiraly is a willing participant in this pointless law suit while Mr. Woodell is using the tax payer's legal system to garner attention and, he hopes, sympathy for a situation that was avoidable day one. Had Mr. Woodell simply spoken to the newspapers when first called, he could have explained that his phone had been lost or stolen from his home or car and he was grateful that it was found. It's only human nature that when there is a gap in information, it is tempting to fill that empty space with theories, guesswork or humorous possibilities. Let's hope the court dismisses the case, giving Mr. Woodell the opportunity to return to his every day life of gainful employment, family and political involvement.
Spectator--in one post you managed to press several of my personal buttons; good job. First, what YOU believe should be of now relevance to Mr. Woodell or Ms Kiraly unless you get called to serve on the jury. Second, "using the tax payers legal system"--comon, man!, I'm sure Mr. Woodell pays taxes, so it is HIS legal system to use--thats why it is there. Finally, it is an smart person who refuses to speak to newspapers when called, again, not required in our society, and the chances for being misquoted or worse just aren't worth it. Personally, I could give a hoot who is right or wrong in this situation, but I certainly would defend and support both parties right to use THEIR legal system to resolve it.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
