Special Commentary on Willow Park Council Meetings

September 10, 2010 by Randy Keck

Special Commentary from publisher Randy Keck:

This commentary is a highly unusual event for The Community News, but under the circumstances I felt that this information needed to be sent out before the next issue of our newspaper goes to press.

If you talk to Willow Park City Administrator Candy Scott, you may see bus tire treads running up and down her back. Another newspaper has been reporting stories that place the blame for Willow Park’s current budget problems squarely on her shoulders.

It is not the purpose of this commentary to critique the way our competitors handle their reporting; nor is it to delve into the reasons for Willow Park’s financial mess. But there is information you, as readers of either or both newspapers, should know.
