At the Council meeting February 4th, 2008, council voted 6-0 in favor of having the County Lawyer represent Councilor Buck Sloat. Councilor Sloat appeared in the Cayuga Courthouse Wednesday February 6th, 2008, with the County Lawyer and Councilor Grice at his side.
I don’t really have a problem with a member of council being represented by the county lawyer if in fact the problem is of an “official” Haldimand County Matter. But when a council member is charged under the Criminal Code, that is a whole new ball game!
