"Smith added that city council was asked not to attend so there wouldn't be any distractions."

What the hell is that all about?
I hope the rumors are not true about Ben being "forced" out and then suicide..... That would make a bad lawsuit!

Lawsuit on what grounds? He had no contract at the time, either.

He can have a great lawsuit with the city letting all the stuff you residents posted on the fb stay up as long as they did any good lawyer would take on that case

Sounds like a big cover up to me.

So he can sue because residents exercised their freedom of speech on the city's facebook page?
My guess is that his contract wasn't renewed for a reason other than job performance and council was trying to be nice with that severance package and his wife being pregnant so they agreed not to publicly state the real reason. No good deed goes unpunished if that is the case because now people are trying to bring council down because of this and nobody other than who was in the closed session even remotely knows the truth. Pathetic people so quick to judge without a single fact.....

Suicide is a selfish act. Council is not to blame for this in any way. Keep your yapping as it will delay the healing process for all. Thoughts and prayers sent Ben's way.

and that is how the MAJORITY of residents see it.

If Smith says it, don't believe it, for the long run hes in it for himself, as stated in the past hes nothing more than a rubber stamp for Mt. Clemens. Mr. Ted was in attendance last night do ya think maybe he is really concerned or has something up his sleeve to get residents and attorneys looking the other way.

By your statement(Suicide is a selfish act)you are ignorant about suicide. Get a education on the subject before you make such a ignorant statement.

Mr. Boyle was just being a gentlemen when he got his finger caught while helping Sarah with the zipper. As you said "lucky no stitches were needed". The other good news was that Sarah was able to finish the job she was there to do.

Rusie didn't show up to work (as if she actually does any) or the vigil, because?
a) She will be implicated shortly in the issue
b) She is embarrassed that she doesn't do anything for her salary except go to meetings and vote no
c) She is embarrassed that her political career is over, having run on the cheap as a Republican and not even getting the Republican vote
d) Hughes family doesnt like her
e) She doesnt like the Hughes family
f) She doesnt know what a Pink Taco is so she makes fun of people who point out her pathetic leadership in giving SCS a Pink Taco, Chicken Shack, Dollar Store, Neon colored buildings... essentially a mini-Detroit with no future. Whats big on the horizon? Buffalo Wild Wings? Gosh. A city on an awesome lake right next door to Grosse Pointes and it looks more like Roseville than Royal Oak or Birmingham. Total lack of leadership. Spends more time with her buddies online making fun of people than doing any real work.
g) All of the above
chrissy is bored with no more houses to enter under false pretenses.
