Councilman's actions should not be forgotten

Editor, the Advocate:
It was with great interest that I read the recent Advocate coverage of the possible walking quorum engaged in by several council members. Of particular interest is the deceit displayed by Mr. Hagan. Having served on the council with Mr. Hagan for several years, I am well aware of his tactics. Mr. Hagan has fooled many of the public for a long time. It appears his arrogance has gotten the best of him.
While serving with Mr. Hagan, I observed a very opportunistic politician concerned only about gaining attention for himself to advance some sort of political career. Mr. Hagan took every opportunity to embellish the facts and mislead the public to his benefit.
To this day, many citizens still believe City Council members conducted illegal meetings at my restaurant, which is completely false. We should also not forget the debacle when Mr. Hagan worked diligently to get former Mayor Will Armstrong indicted only to have him exonerated after several hundred thousand dollars of taxpayer money was wasted. I could go on, but the rational observer will get the point.
Mr. Hagan has never had the interest of the community, only his personal interest of furthering some political career. Where is Mr. Hagan's transparency?
Yes, indeed. It's time to "shine the light of day" on Mr. Hagan.
