The article you wrote about Waxhaw Commissioner Kirkpatrick attempting to sneak her brother in as the lead interior designer for Waxhaw Town Hall was interesting to say the least. After your article, I decided to do a little investigating myself, reading old meeting minutes, watching the DVD of the last commissioner meeting, reading public record e-mails from Commissioner Kirkpatrick and Mayor Gardner. It takes a lot to shock me, but I have to admit, this did it.
Kudos to Commissioner Lane and Commissioner Blythe for taking a stand against it. This behavior is disgusting. It is most definitely unethical and needs to be treated as such. I am at a loss as to why both of these elected officials have not been stripped of their elected titles and why they both still hold office. As far as I’m concerned and many of my friends, we would like to see both of these women taken out of office. I would like to see honesty and openness from our elected officials, not games, lies and unethical behavior.
