Not sure if I like the sound of a Marti "party"
Yes, of course, the big local news today is that Councilwoman Marti Rutherford has resigned her seat.
She did the right thing, but was it for the right reasons? The community is buzzing tonight with stories involving sightings of Rutherford stalking Brainerd streets, flipping papers in her hand as she drives by slowly — multiple times. She is, apparently, checking addresses, perhaps of those who signed the citizen complaint that launched the formal residency investigation.
This comes after Rutherford reportedly told her detractors, in a public statement, to "watch out."
Maybe Ms. Rutherford was obtaining addresses in order to send invitations to party with her. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. After all, a District 6 couple told me just today that, even though they felt that Marti was in the wrong, and are glad that she resigned, they would have her over for tea anytime.
