What can you say but, "WOW!"

A Councilman's 'Dying Declaration' - Thadeus Greenson/The Journal

In what appears to be a sworn declaration signed less than a month before he died, former Eureka City Councilman Lance Madsen claims Eureka City Attorney Cyndy Day-Wilson lied to him and tried to get another city hall employee to do the same in an effort to cover up her allegedly distributing a confidential and explosive memo to city employees.

The declaration and an accompanying six-page investigative report, both of which Madsen apparently made a top priority during the last months of his battle with lung disease, were delivered by certified mail to the city on June 5 by Daniel Cooper, Madsen’s probate attorney. Together, the documents shed new light on an apparently toxic environment in city hall and a rift on the city council. And they raise serious questions about Day-Wilson’s honesty, ethics and job performance....

and that's just the lead in....

  2. Now, that's some funny stuff right there, 8:26. And best of all, just the facts.

  3. What do the above comments have to do with the post? Zip.

    John Chiv also supported Virginia Bass and Ryan Sundberg who won in this June election. He also supported all the winners in the 2010 election.

    The June 2014 election is over. Move on.

  4. It will be interesting to see if there will be any follow-up to this investigation.

    There is more to this story.

  5. Maybe, but maybe not. It doesn't seem like a big deal.

    I got the impression that Panos left because he could see the writing on the wall, as in he was going to be shown the door. Fired, given the boot.

    I don't understand why Panos was hired in the first place.

    And I really don't uderstand why how he got a job in Wyoming! Makes me wonder about Wyoming

  6. Ever wonder why you wonder so much about what is not big deal?

    Spend less time on a blog. Do something in real life that makes a difference.

    Talk is cheap.

  7. Rose - just a heads up. I took a snippet photo of your recent comments and used it elsewhere to make a point about anons. Hope that was OK. It was not meant at all as a continuation of our differences. Only to make a point about how confusing it is when everyone comments as an anon. Let me know if you don't approve, I'll remove it.

  8. Jon, you are a very courteous person. Thanks for asking. It's fine.

    You argue in good faith, and we find the occasional point of agreement, it's a good thing.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
