Hedquist attorney Michael Lansing decried the lack of procedure for an informal hearing, saying it would devolve into a lynch mob.
If your comment was not approved, perhaps.
good what? you did not just say that right? you think 55k is bad you should see what the county wasted on jones. try 200k plus. are ya tired yet boys and girls? and the paper still gets the story wrong. but then again the city and county are really its only money source. does anyone really bother buying the paper when you can get it free, does anyone really spend money for ads when there are so many new sources out there that are free. do you take a paper that buys its ink by the barrel serious? do us all a favor vote for no one who is in office or was in office in the last 4 years. lets just out of trust see whats happens? and by the way the confused, just forgets these guys. they have no more insight then a magician.
Ken Ball, who publicly clashed with Patterson last month over a perceived insult, joined Lansing in pointing to the city manager as the source of the protracted, contentious dispute.
The Casper City Council voted 6 2 Tuesday to drop its ethics violation case against the council member and instead pursue an informal hearing on the matter April 29. Only council members Keith Goodenough and Daniel Sandoval voted against the decision.
Councilman Craig Hedquist isn't going anywhere.
"I understand many of you are anxious to hear how we got to this point," Lansing said. "That will happen under pending federal litigation."
Bertoglio said civility on the council is the worst he's ever seen it in 16 years.
Two separate, city launched investigations found Hedquist committed workplace violence and violated conflict of interest laws in his dual role as councilman and the city's top contractor. Hedquist denied all wrongdoing in a December press conference.

Lansing lambasted city officials for speaking to the press despite an apparent "gag order" agreed upon by everybody involved. Sandoval called the accusation disingenuous.
"The idea that City Council is being led by the nose by Mr. Patterson is quite ludicrous," Vice Mayor Charlie Powell said. "I'm quite tired of having those statements made."
Several council members vehemently disagreed.

The hearing officer hired by the City Council to oversee the contested case hearing said last month that city codes prohibit removal of the councilman from office unless he's convicted of violating ethics laws. Hedquist has not been convicted of anything.
"Communication is accomplished in a great many ways, and a lawsuit with hundreds of allegations is Air Max 90 Superfly On Foot
of my city this is getting in the gutter now," said Councilman Paul Bertoglio. "This could and should have been handled in August. Hedquist should have voluntarily resigned. If we don't get to the bottom of this, it's going to keep eating at us like a cancer."
Craig Hedquist to stay on Casper City Council
Several council members pointed out their desire to let Hedquist have his say.
Goodenough said both council and Patterson were ill equipped to handle Hedquist's "frisky attitude" and even though the problem was apparent early on, it wasn't addressed.
"I don't think an informal hearing is going to get to the root of (the) problem, either," Goodenough said at the council's Tuesday meeting. "So much time has gone by we probably can't ever say what happened."
"(Hedquist's attorneys say) there is a side we haven't heard. We're all very interested in that," Vice Mayor Charlie Powell said. "We want a very public discussion of what happened here."
Powell said the council has voted together every step of the way, from hiring Kathleen Dixon to investigate whether Hedquist committed workplace violence during an Aug. 28 argument with City Engineer Andrew Beamer, to crafting the resolution to pursue the informal hearing.
a form of communication," Sandoval said. "It's public and you know it's going to make the paper."
Sandoval wondered out loud whether both sides could drop the issue and walk away having learned a few lessons, but Lansing seemed to make it clear the federal lawsuit will stand.
Hedquist will not face removal from the council through the informal hearing, which was a possibility under the more formal contested case proceeding. Examples of possible consequences included a public reprimand or a request for Hedquist's resignation. It was unclear whether the City Council could take constructive steps to eliminate the appearance of or actual conflicts of interest under the informal hearing.
Hedquist has filed a federal lawsuit claiming civil rights violations and demanding a stop to the contested case hearing. Hedquist accuses City Manager John Patterson of trying to foil his campaign, spy on him and remove him from council. Patterson has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
So the Casper City Council just wants to move on! From What? Moving from messing up to covering up? If you cannot admit that you let the City Manager lead you down this rat hole you will spend the next 2 years trying dig your way Air Max 90 Br Ultra out. You will spend a fortune on legal fees, translated as taxpayer dollars and for what? At the end to it you will blame Patterson who managed you into this mess. And honestly, what good is a City Council that is tone deaf and "tired of hearing" what it does to want to hear from the voters that elected them?We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day.
