Myers Decision Document

The Board of Elections has posted the decision document for Myers.  It appears that Myers filed for bankruptcy prior to filing his nomination papers.  Mr. Myers was in arrears to the city on a water bill issued subsequent to the bankruptcy filing and that is what disqualified him.  The Board also noted that merely filing for bankruptcy does not result in the taxpayer no longer being responsible for his debts.  It merely stays collection action on those debts.  At the time Myers filed he was apparently in court on the bankruptcy, the discharge had not occurred.  I have to wonder what else he owed the city that is still pending action in the bankruptcy court, or has been discharged.
