I am shocked and appalled by Ron Jackson's personal indictment accusing Chester Kavanaugh of being an unethical public servant. He further contends that Kavanaugh is nothing more than a crony for the mayor. To put it mildly and hopefully so that we won't have to take this to another level, Jackson's allegations are simply not true.
In a recent letter to the editor, Jackson tells us, as if we didn't already know, that the mayor and Commissioner Ryan Owens have been reprimanded by the Ethics Commission. He takes pride that his organization, the Danville-Boyle Citizens for Good Government, was responsible for filing the complaints that resulted in the reprimands.
We all know, as citizens of this community, that Chester Kavanaugh has not been reprimanded by the Ethics Commission or otherwise. In fact, to my knowledge, no complaints have been lodged against him. No complaints by Jackson or his organization. However, in spite of this fact, Jackson states that our community has suffered by a "current string of ethical challenges to government in Danville brought by a threesome intent on ruining the reputation of our city." To insinuate and imply that Kavanaugh is one of the "threesome" responsible for any "ethical challenges to government" is not only wrongful, but also shameful. It also may be legally actionable.
