Reynolds Responds (see documentation)

May 7, 2012

Pensacola City Administrator Bill Reynolds said he believes that the Sunshine Law accusation being levied against him will be proved unfounded.

Earlier this month, Pensacola City Councilwoman Maren DeWeese raised questions concerning Sunshine Law violations. She contends that Reynolds violated the state’s open-government law and acted as a conduit of communication—via e-mails—between members of the city’s Parks and Recreation board. City Attorney Jim Messer has forwarded the matter to State Attorney Bill Eddins.

“As with any claim of, essentially law breaking, we need to take a look at it,” Reynolds said.

The city administrator declined to discuss specifics because the matter is currently under investigation.

“I will say I’m very confident I did nothing wrong,” Reynolds summarized.

    And the pee’ing match between the City Council and Mayor’s Office continues.

    What needs to happen here is for both sides to grow up. The Mayor needs to attend council meetings and participate with a little less dictating. Certainly he needs to control his spending habits.

    The Council needs to realize this is the kind of thing that happens to you when you DO NOT READ what you are voting for. This apparently happens quite often with our lazy council. Had they READ the Charter they might not have been in such a hurry to vote themselves into irrelevancy.
