Woolston in KOAM interview: I didn't do anything wrong
That is not the approach being taken by Former Joplin City Councilman Mike Woolston who began his rehabilitation tour with an exclusive one-on-one interview with KOAM's Jordan Aubey.
In the first segment, which was broadcast moments ago, Woolston said he wanted to tell his story in the hearing, but was unable to do so.
"It got to be for me a decision of cost. I had hired two attorneys out of Kansas City and they had been working on it pretty steadily from the time that the hearing motion was made and I began to realize that it would probably turn out that I might have some support, but I would not have enough support to remain on council."
That was the only part of the interview that was broadcast during the 5 p.m. newscast, but more is coming up at 6 p.m. According to Aubey, Woolston denies all charges against him and says he had the okay from the city attorney at that time, Brian Head, to do the things that he did.
It is curious why Woolston thinks he needs to do this, when the City Council just agreed to a joint statement that says he did not do anything wrong.
