Re: “Swamped Wake commissioner looks for dry land

Even if only a fraction of what is posted in this article has more truth to it than simple mud slinging, a commissioner acting this way is extremely saddening and entirely too baffling. Didn't someone explain the nature and purpose of "public service" to this guy before they let him hold a publically elected position?

The guy needs to pull together what ever dignity he has and do the honorable thing and resign instead of dragging the county through this muck. And when he's done resigning he needs to go back to school and take some ethics courses. And when he's done with the ethics courses, he needs to throw in some real volunteer time somewhere where he can't front his business interests to get a feel for real public service for the right reasons.

This whole thing is rich people trying to get richer off the public and the poor. Sidestep to the current Wall Street crisis. Sidestep back. I just don't get the attitude. The pursuit of physical wealth isn't the ony thing in the world. Money is really a small thing, a drug, almost meaningless when you learn to make it not important to your happiness. Rich people are addicted to money and this is just another example of another rich guy committing social attrocities against the foundation of of society to obtain more of it. Pathetic if you ask me.
