The mayor of Huntington needs a time out (be sure to watch the video of his tirade):
In the lawsuit filed by attorney Bill Hogg, HCAAN is stating that not all interested parties were allowed to speak at the public hearing August 25th to discuss the annexation and that some people were even afraid to speak.
HCAAN says therefore, the common council doesn’t have the legal right or authority to adopt or vote on the ordinance because all of the steps required by law were not taken.
What the video captures the mayor saying (among other things) is: “If you can’t have anything nice to say, get out! You hear me?” Sort of captures the essence of annexation, doesn’t it? We don’t really care about what you think . . . just give us your money and shut up.
