Thanks for this.

Not surprisingly, Scott Mitchell says his "job is to protect Bob Young". I might question whether his pit bull tactics are in fact protecting Bob Young, or making his life and his reputation worse, but let's leave that aside for the moment.

Whose job is it to protect the citizens of Hamilton and their Future Fund? Politicians, of course. For me, that's why Fred Eisenberger stood his ground. He paid dearly for it, but he will always have both my gratitude and my respect for doing so, no matter the outcome of this debacle. Fred lives here. Fred was elected by the majority of citizens. He took his job just as seriously as Scott Mitchell does his. For me, the fact that Fred was looking out for the entire city and everybody in it is a lot easier to take than a guy who by his own admission has a singular, dare I say simplistic, focus to protect one guy - BY.

If "win at all cost" is the mantra of the President of the Tiger Cat organization, perhaps that explains, in part, why we're in such a mess?
