The current commissioners were right to extend an apology to the aggrieved citizens in the community. Not for what Mr. (Dennis) DeWitt did or did not do, but for their lack of action on the information they claimed to have had for such a long time – waiting for the right moment to try and get the most political value out of the incident.
The commissioners had already agreed once not to pursue the issue, then they decided to continue to pursue it again, even after DeWitt retired. I feel it is not right to place information in a person’s file, when the individual is not an employee of the county.
I attended the Commissioners Court meeting on Monday, June 28, and I was appalled to listen to the statements of Carlos Salazar and Susan Stasny. I find it hard to believe that Mr. Salazar, with his educational background, could read a statement that sounded like a lawyer had written it.
As per Commissioner Stasny’s statement that she knew the risks of bringing up the allegations during an election and that she knew of the complaints long before the election, that makes it hard for me to believe she is going out with dignity, self-respect and a clear conscience.
Mr. DeWitt, I thank you for your decision on stopping the waste of tax dollars from these commissioners who do not care about our county and are there for their own personal reasons.
