I have read Mr. Garlick's Feb. 10 guest commentary, "Critic's accusations are unfounded," several times, and then listened to Mr. Draney's questions to the city council several times. I am trying to match what Mr. Garlick said with the comments by Mr. Draney.
The theme of Mr. Garlick's words seem to focus on "accusations." The only true accusations I could find were those of Mr. Garlick. Mr. Draney simply asked questions that all of us have a right to ask, as well as a right to the answers. He did not 'spout untruths' nor did he make any 'ridiculous accusations' as Mr. Garlick claimed.
Do we not have the right to ask questions of our city council? Do we not have the right to ascertain what is being done with money out of our own pockets? Why would a respectful councilman lessen his own credibility by accusing where there were only reasonable questions?
