He said he would pay - should he?

I don't think the county has any legal recourse since the Board voted to pay them. Mike King said during a public forum that if elected he would reimburse the fees paid by the county. When contacted by the Creston News Advertiser, King clarified his statement saying he would pay it back when or lose. In my opinion, Mike King should keep his word and pay them back, even though he's probably not legally required to.

If he doesn't pay then I say boycott the Elm's club! I've dealt with this character several times. He's a coward to your face and a bully behind your back. I've seen the way he treats waitresses.....not a good man. Seriously, I think the city of Creston should boycott the ELm's until he pays. He will most likely come back and say he was misquoted or he will try to bargain down the amount until it is a fraction of what is owed.

Boycotting the Elm's is a good idea. Not sure why anyone gives that man any business, anyway.

We need to get more people onboard with this. I promise if he thinks it will hit his pocketbook through the ELms Club he will pay up. Not only because of the lost revenue during the boycott but also the customers he will permenantly lose. When his customers discover other places are as good or better they will be gone forever.

But be careful. He will make a promise and not keep it......he has done it before.

Its on the local radio website that the county has decided to no longer pursue reimbursement. The county attorney said all informal attempts to collect have been unsuccessful, and the only other course would be thru litigation. The Board decided that the cost of litigation would outweigh what they would receive. Let the boycotting begin.
