I apologize for my behavior at meeting

Written by 

To the Editor:

To the taxpayers, business owners and residents of Maggie Valley, I personally apologize to each and everyone of you for my behavior during our Feb. 15 town meeting. Needless to say I was very angry with the other board members regarding several issues that were not being shared with the public prior to this meeting. My actions may have been wrong, but my meaning was true.

I take great pride in serving the people sitting on the board of alderman in Maggie Valley. I will not sit on this board with blinders on, and I will not be someone’s puppet. Again, I apologize for my behavior but please understand. I serve the people, not the board.

And when all is said and done, what Maggie does not need is cover-ups, liars and sexual harassment. We need to strive for the future, for clinging to the past will only dim the fortunes of today. And the truth will stand when nothing else will.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
