    Why did it take a whole month for someone to find out that this woman embezzled 7500.00 dollars of our money!?! And for her to pay it back so fast seems to me someone was trying to make sure that no one would find out this woman took the money! As far as I am concerened some of our city officals are no good and neither it seems are their children. What’s the old saying the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

    You should be careful of the words that are coming out of your mouth. She has not been to trial nor has she been formally charged so apparently there is a lot more to this story than WCBI is reporting. People are so quick to judge others. She is a young woman that may or may not have made a silly mistake. Trust me people have been making silly mistakes for years and it will continue for years to come. Im sure your have made a few, maybe not this drastic. I no longer live in Columbus and I have been gone for many years, but if i did live there and did not like what was going own in my city, I would get off my rump and do something about it. Instead you stand on your platform online behind your computer screen. Don’t be reckless with your words. You never know how it will affect others. Society is so cruel. As far as the city officials go…….. Someone voted them in. The last time I was home to visit, I actually felt a since of pride coming home. I can clearly see YOUR tax dollars being spent wisely! The city looks better than it has in years. I think the city officials are doing a wonderful job. Lastly, You can raise a child in a two parent household and teach them about the proper morals and ethics, but once they become adults they make theur own choices. This is in no way a reflection on her parents or their parenting skills. Im sure your parents would not be pleased to know that your placing your unwanted judgement on someone that you do not even know. Then again everyone is entitled to their own opinion no matter how useless it may be.
