Miss yesterday’s Metro Council ad-hoc committee on Metro Animal Services?
We mentioned some highlights yesterday.
But now it’s time to see video highlights. We’ve broken down the important bits into ten parts. If you want to see the entire event in its entirety? Click here for that.
Let’s get to the pertinents:
Part 1 — Greg Fischer’s attorney, Kellie Watson, appears nervous and dances around everything:
Part 2 — Kevin Kramer takes the Fischer Administration to task on responsibility and transparency:
Part 3 — David James pushes for ensuring the city auditor, infamous for maybe not doing a stellar job during the Shanklin mess, to record all interviews:
Part 4 — The opener says this is part three but it’s really part four. Watch the squirming around Sadiqa Reynolds, the LMAS investigation and all of the lying/obfuscation/conflicts flying out of the Fischer world — oh, and nothing was ever written down:
Part 5 — Will Sadiqa Reynolds ever show up to answer questions? What does she have to hide?
Part 6 — Kelly Downard takes CFO Steve Rowland to task, getting him to admit he was never consulted during a review. Downard also gets him to admit funds earmarked for Sadie were misappropriated:
Part 7 — The CFO denies his job responsibility but Downard schools him with the law. Then he points out just how bad things are, highlights the terrible condition Sadie was in until she was put to death:
Part 8 — Councilman Kramer chaps ass on the investigation front, Rowland makes ridiculous remarks about cash, Kramer positions a reality nail and Downard hammers it home:
Part 9 — Downard invokes the nightmare that was Gilles Meloche, Cindi Fowler says the big picture is disturbing — Sadie was used as a PR tool, kicks Rowland square in the you-know-where:
Part 10 — Finally, Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh just… unloads. There’s no other way to describe it:
Still wondering why this is a big deal for Greg Fischer?
The writing is on the wall and there’s more in this dog death poo storm to come. Just wait.
Kudos to the members of the ad-hoc committee for holding government accountable.
