Support for Marjorie King

May 3, 2012 by Editor

There is only one qualified candidate in the tax assessor-collector’s race and she will get my vote.

Thank you, Marjorie King, for bringing integrity back to the office. Does Mr. Lippincott think the voters have forgotten about his lawsuit?

He demanded to know who his employees voted for and when they wouldn’t tell him, they were fired. Don’t we still live in America?

Two of the employees sued him for 1.5 million dollars. The Hardy lawsuit was dismissed but he was found guilty of violating the other employee’s First Amendment rights.
(Click Read More below)

The case settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money. There were over two years of attorney fees, court costs and the settlement amount. The taxpayers paid the bill.

Mr. Lippincott ran for county clerk and lost. His wife ran for county treasurer and lost and then ran for JP #2 and lost. Do they just want on the county payroll?

You had your chance, Larry and blew it. No, thanks. We have had enough of you.

This letter is an absolute lie. I never asked any employee who they voted for. I would not have to ask them. The all joyfully claimed they voted for me without any prompting from me. The lawsuit was not a trial, I was not found guilty of anything. In fact the dismissal of this case exonerated me of all allegations. And I never settled with anyone. This letter is slander and it is a shame that any elected official would stoop to such low standards as having their supportors make such ridiculous claims just so she could keep her job. Ms. King has never campaigned on anything but attacking her opponent. It is the politics of personal destruction and people are tired of it. People are also tired of elected officials abusing the generous pension benefit programs the way Ms. Kings is doing. The taxpayers are paying her a salary and a retirement check for the same job. And Ms. King is accruing additional pension benefits with her current salary and benefits package. It is time for a change. Please join me in making a positive change for Parker County. Vote for Larry Lippincott for tax assessor-collector.

Mr. Moon is mistaken. This was a frivolous law suit. It was politically motivated lawsuit. All claims were dismissed and I never settled with anyone. This is basically all lies designed to help Ms. King keep her job. She has held that office for sixteen years. She collects both a retirement check and a salary check for same job. She is asking the voters to re- elect her to a 5th term and pay her double for 4 more years. She needs to retire(again).

Suit dismissed

This is the same old lies over and over again. I was exonerated when that law suit was dismissed. No employees were ever fired for any political reasons. It is clear that Ms. King's supporters will say anything to get her re-elected. She has held that job for 16 years and is drawing both salary and retirement pay for the same job. She has no vision for the future. It is time for her to retire (again).
