ETHICS: Boe stories bloated with false innuendo

Re: “Firm’s ties to Boe stronger than known” (TNT, 6-10).

Opening up the paper this morning I am surprised to see another headline with David Boe’s name, another story suggesting dishonesty. I am frankly bewildered.

As a friend of Boe’s for the past 17 years, I know him to be a person who speaks his mind and without mincing words. If he says the new Cheney Stadium plan looks like an office park with a ballfield attached to it, then that is exactly what he thinks. He is also an honest man with strong opinions and a strong sense of integrity.

To suggest that his ties to Wade Perrow Construction would cause him to act unethically is ridiculous. My guess is that the paper is struggling and needs to sell its wares. Those who agree to take leading roles in our community are easy targets who pay the price, with erroneous innuendo perpetrated by your enterprise.
