I believe that city council hopeful Cameron Stolz deserves another chance.
Too often, people are tried and convicted in the court of public opinion with no opportunity to make amends. One of the problems in our society is that people and elected officials aren’t given a second chance.
It is true that Cameron Stolz did not pay his property taxes three years in a row while serving on city council and as chair of the finance and audit committee. I realize that does not look very reassuring to the taxpayer when the council person overseeing some of the city’s finances isn’t paying their own property taxes.
No one is perfect. How many times do we hear about some politician getting into trouble for inappropriate things they have said or done? Donald Trump made several inappropriate remarks and mistruths during his presidency and still managed to get the second highest vote total in U.S. presidential election history.
If Donald Trump can get second chances, we can at least give Cameron Stolz a second chance.
