Former council members file suit

September 30, 2011

A lawsuit has been filed against two city council members and a pair of local businesses in connection with an ongoing investigation into possible illegal campaign contributions.

Former City Councilwoman Joann Staulcup confirmed today that she and ex councilwoman Stephanie Horton were filing suit against current councilmen Marcus Fernandez and Glenn Carrigan, charging them with accepting illegal campaign contributions. Also named as defendants are local corporations Quad A Inc. and Hydro Dynamics, the firms that allegedly made the contributions.

Midland attorney C.H. “Hal” Brockett is representing Staulcup and Horton in the legal action.

Staulcup said the lawsuit was to be formally filed with the 118th Judicial District Court sometime today.

Sore Losers

Get a life. The voters fired you. Your services are no longer wanted. Speaking for myself, you two drove the nails in your own coffins because of your unwillingness to listen to the voters who hired you. Don't be discouraged, you'll not be the the only ones, some others on the council will be up for re-election soon enough. Accept the loss for what it is, learn from it and move on.

You Lost...

I can't believe these people! You lost live with it! Ms Horton quoting your usual response in the council meetings, “How are the children going to benefit from this?" All your showing them is you can't lose gracefully. Ms Staulcup you made unpopular decisions going against the wishes of the same people that elected you! Even in higher politics the voters have spoken out, and made changes in the House of Representatives and the Senate for not respecting the people who vote them into office. Both of you have fallen under this category, so again live with it. Let the elected people focus on their elected duties and not on two sore losers of an election.

A waste of Tax Payer's money

Joann Staulcup and ex councilwoman Stephanie Horton are two people who have nothing better to do than to stir up the pot. Their lawsuits will only cost honest tax payers more tax dollars! Ladies, get a life!
