Last night the Ocean City Council met and at the 11th hour Mr. Hall proposed the City pony up the more than $6,000.00 for the surgery on former/retired K-9 Charlie.
Under nation wide review the City felt the wrath of the media outreach and finally decided to do what I feel is the right thing, own up to their responsibility.
Of course the Main Stream Media never made any mention of all the money Charlie had brought into the Town of Ocean City in drug busts but thank God one of the Council Members read our message and chose to do the right thing.
It was voted upon and approved last night, so Earl should be getting a call soon. In an early morning conversation with Earl Campbell I strongly urged him to accept the money. By now, we all know Earl did this to help Charlie. However, we have provided pictures of the Campbell Family posing with Charlie and the Family comes first. He's got a period ahead of him in which he'll be looking for a job. He's got children who will be heading off to college. He did the right and honorable thing, hopefully Earl accepts the City's offer for his Family's sake.
I want to personally thank the Ocean City Council. It has been mentioned by Earl several times, this had NOTHING to do with the City Council. Yet the City Council stepped up to the plate and overruled the OCPD by proposing to take care of those expenses.
With any luck Earl will accept their offer. More importantly, after speaking to Earl this morning we will continue to fight to insure the rights of a K-9. New legislation needs to be proposed to protect these animals during and after their career on the Force.
I just love it when a plan comes together. I love it even more when a group of politicians come together and make the right choices.
