we noticed that a gannett/town talk story/forum commenter who goes by the alias of eddiemonster has been going around spamming various threads about an upcoming civil service board hearing. apparently, the hearing is over actions allegedly taken by a city of alexandria, louisiana employee in the recent alexandria district 3, city council election and a lawsuit that stemmed from it:

There is a hearing scheduled this Wed Oct.29th before the Civil Service Board on Mr. Marcotte. Your paper quoted him as an expert witness and water dept. employee. This city employee is about to lose his job. He is expected to testify that Mayor Roy and City Attorney Chuck Johnson DIRECTED him to go into the personal records of Mr. Goins and get private information which he testified to at the trial of SMITH V. GOINS
[T]his guy invaded the privacy of Goins while he was on the city clock after being directed by the city attorney and the mayor. That is what the civil service hearing is all about. KALB will have a reporter at the hearing. The attorney generals office and the bar association will also have a representative.
WHERE: CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS
WHEN: 4PM OCT. 29, 2008
THE HEARING IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
"Swent said the utility records presented by expert witness Michael P. Marcotte, city superintendent of the electric distribution department, were compelling in showing that neither Goins nor his mother Barbara Stewart-Howard live there all the time." ~ link to the google cache of the article or click here to download a .pdf of ms. donica's complete article.so, since this hearing will be held in the city council chambers will it be broadcast live over public access channel 4?
