If you are elected to office, do not vote on contracts that could have a direct financial impact on you or your immedate family. That is illegal. It is your responsibility as a council member to know that and keep your own nose clean. It is not everyone else's job to do that for you.
If you are doing that and somebody tells you to stop, then stop. Don't instead try to ruin that person's career to divert attention away from your own pending scandal when the DA starts investigating you for using city money to enrich yourself.
And, while we're at it, if you get a $170,000 payout from the city to retire, don't turn around and create a controversy over something you now say you did wrong seven years ago, when your intent is only to hurt the person who appears to be beating you out for a job.
Berry may have made a mistake in judgment seven years ago. But Schwab created much of the recent controversy with his sudden desire to purge himself of seven years of guilt, right after he got a fat payout from the city he was about to embarass. Miller led the charge publicly to excoriate Berry and Margie Miller tried to whip up a frenzy with her alleged newspaper regarding allegations that are seven years old. The three of them made a whipping boy out of Berry -- Schwab out of sour grapes and the Millers to pump up Jim as a guardian of the city's honor when they knew darn well that the DA was breathing down their necks. Thankfully, the council stepped back from the brink of insanity Tuesday and did not fire Berry over an alleged controversy manufactured by people whose motives were far from pure.
The only surprising thing is that the Millers and Schwab did not also try to nail Berry for the city's first homicide in 20 years. Then again, it's only Wednesday ...
The Millers did stop taking ads as soon as the issue was brought to their attention. They even offered to pay back all the money paid for the services rendered if the Office of Public Affairs Ruled it a Conflict of Interest. However, it was Berry's attempt to clear the Council of any one who had asked for accountibility that motivated his Pushing the DA to File the More Extream Charges, while he continues to hide from his own Criminal Invistigation and Admitted Crimes, by Berry and Schwab.

Read Berry's "Interview" it sounds like a scripted document reading not an Interview.

You may even what to check on where he and Bea have been together of late.

Hmmm Kool-aid? Yes this last 4 years in THIS COUNTY have had several cases of Democrats who have been corrupt, arrested, indited, investigated by the FBI, jailed, sued, and under suspicion of drug use. Yes I have tasted your Kool-aid and now see many corrupt Democrats in this county. I guess thats what I need to do to find them. In order to find a corrupt republican, all I need to do is open the paper!
