Sun reporter was simply describing what happened in court

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

It's a good thing Bob Greemore is not running for re-election. Given the content of his recent (Aug. 8) Letter to the Editor, it is obvious he doesn't care much about the facts.
Greemore's criticism of the Sun's coverage (Aug. 7: County Factions Make Their Arguments Before A Judge) of the lawsuit brought by some members of the County Convention against the County Commissioners completely overlooks a key piece of information: The reporter simply described what actually happened at the hearing.

In fact, Attorney Desrosier did occupy most of the time describing his clients' position on the plaintiffs' standing in the case. Attorney Desrosier was simply doing his job, arguing on behalf of his clients, not engaging in a "long diatribe."
In a hearing that lasted only an hour, Attorney Desrosier simply laid out his clients' argument that the County Convention previously voted to challenge 2013 budget, not the 2014 budget which is the basis of the current lawsuit.

I am glad the Sun is covering this issue and, given the reports I have received from those who were there, I believe it is doing so with accuracy.
