When Republicans are caught doing stupid things they mostly resign and slink away never to be heard from again.
When Democrats are caught they blame the messenger.
Case in point is Democrat Mayor Tari Renner. He blames me for reporting but refuses to comment on what was said:
I wasn’t listening to the Zoom meeting on 12/9. I was contacted by someone who was, no searching for “Gotcha” moments. That person doesn’t matter Tari? Their opinion doesn’t mater Tari? Their outrage at what was heard doesn’t matter Tari? Does it make you feel taller to deflect blame to me?
Maybe this will force staff to go back to meeting in person where they are more careful about what they say!
I don’t know where your 150 shares on social media came from, on my site I show 778 Facebook shares. Although a few have attempted to defend Galye Price’s comment, most are outraged at what she said and the reaction from others on the video.
The Pantagraph should have asked City Manager Tim Gleason for a comment. Price works for him, not Tari.
