Your View: Trinity writer should explain his assertions

Feb. 07, 2013 @ 01:13 AM

I’m uncomfortable with the comments Phillip Chadwell made in his letter to the High Point Enterprise on Jan. 25: “Attend Council meetings to get full story.”
I challenge Chadwell publicly to name the councilwoman who he says “recently misrepresented two conversations in attempt to justify why she did not want to allow a dedicated citizen to complete his second term on the Parks and Infrastructure subcommittee” and to state exactly what the misrepresentation was.  If he cannot fully explain himself then I think he should refrain from indulging in spreading hearsay and baseless rumors.
I challenge Chadwell publicly to explain in detail exactly what he was implying when he stated that “three council members who took mayor–appointed committee changes in stride after the 2011 election or how the others have refused to accept the mayor appointed changes.”  If he cannot fully explain himself then I think he should cut out his grubby insinuations.
I challenge Chadwell publicly to provide verifiable details of the gamesmanship that he suggests Trinity City Council indulges in and to further state how he came to know about it.  If he cannot fully explain himself then I think he should cease making wayward assertions.
I challenge Chadwell publicly to give definitive examples of what he refers to as “the blatant disregard for procedure” that he suggests several Trinity City Council members exhibit by coming to meetings with their minds already made up and further to explain how he also is able to discern what goes on inside the heads of Trinity City Council members with respect to the replacement of the two citizens, which action he used to bolster credibility of his unusual mental abilities. If he cannot explain himself then I think he should desist from offering psychic suggestions.

N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory says he supports the idea of developing “wind farms” off the coast of North Carolina to generate electricity. What do you think? In 30 words or less (no name, address required), email us your thoughts to letterbox@hpe.com. Here is one response:
• We do not need wind farms on or off the coast. The money would be better spent on something useful and cheaper like natural gas and oil.

• Obama wishes to exterminate the “Tea Party,” but first he must disarm them. In 1939 Germany, it was referred to as the solution.
• When free men are armed, they’re called citizens; when men give up that right to defend their family and country they’re called subjects.
