Continuing to differentiate herself from the other traditional longtime media, Editor Vanessa Brashier should be complimented for covering the continued saga and downfall of longtime Democrat and former County Judge Phil Fitzgerald. It is not her job to prosecute him or to defend him (like the local radio station seems to think is there job), but the paper is fulfilling the role traditional media around here has been found lacking in heretofore.
To read her paper’s story on the most recent ruling in federal court please go to:
Liberty Dispatch is left wondering if stories about Fitzgerald and former Commissioner Lee Groce demanding that all of their attorneys’ fees be paid by the taxpayers of Liberty County had an influence on the feds handling of the most recent negotiations with the Fitzgerald. Whether it did or not, I hope some of our public officials are standing guard against further injury to the taxpayers in this case.
