Although I wanted to present the position of the Board and the citizens that have contacted us about this merger, as well as correct some of the misrepresentations made by the media of the support for this merger, I should have known that some people can't help but use it as a platform to get even, make personal attacks and sling mud to distract people from the issue. I'm disappointed in the personal attacks, all of which are untrue, and the fact you hide behind anonymity to make them. These types of attacks are why good people stay out of the public service to spare their friends and family hurtful attacks. I am also disappointed in WWAY perpetuating these types of posts. What I posted were the facts of the situation - I will not bring it down to mudslinging and sensationalist journalism.
