'Golf volunteers deserve thanks'

Print Article

In response to the article "Golf probe: Conflicting stories on free play," first of all, why are the complaint sources names being blacked out from the public when these very people may have been promoted within the city due to this unethical investigation?

Secondly, there is conflicting information from the first article published by BDN stating that Brian Ramsey resigned, when in this article it states that Lori Curtis Luther stated Brian Ramsey lost his job. What was it? Was he forced to resign or was he fired?

Lastly, this investigation should never have been made public. It specifically named the window washer as the reason to the complaint on the channel 3000 interview, and this person was receiving free golf. These allegations slandered and defamed many loyal golf patrons. When in reality, the volunteers should have been thanked for their many years of service to the community to offset the costs to the city. Instead they have been publically humiliated and portrayed as thieves stealing free golf from the taxpayers of Beloit.

The people involved in these allegations deserve a sincere public apology from the city manager. The complaint sources must be revealed to the public as well as they had something to gain in exposing a well known fact to city higher ups that volunteers were receiving free golf.

These sort of stories are made public to make someone look good while slandering and defaming others. The real facts to the story need to be rectified to the public.
