Editorial: Village attorney opinion to pay council members... |

This is from Wellington where two people, who were private citizens at the time, had to pay legal fees to contest the results of an election which was ultimately reversed. And the plain and simple answer is that, since they weren't working in an official capacity at the time, they can't. In this case, it is too bad and seems unfair due to the electoral mix-up in the first place. However, let's not open the door to pay legal fees of people who are not public officials. It is rumored that some people who aren't public officials in Lake Worth would like their costs reimbursed associated with their mediations and other legal challenges. That just can't be allowed to happen.
