    - Town of Indian Trail
    Indian Trail Councilman David Waddell





    An Indian Trail councilman decided to boldly go where no politician has gone before – and tendered his resignation this week in the Klingon language.
    Apparently David Waddell no longer wanted to live long and prosper on the board.
    In an interview Thursday, Waddell said his resignation letter to Mayor Michael Alvarez was written in Klingon, the language of a proud warrior race in the “Star Trek†TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. But in case the mayor wasn’t up to speed with his Klingon, Waddell included a translation using Bing.com.
    “Folks don’t know what to think of me half the time,†said Waddell, so “I might as well have one last laugh†on the board.
    Alvarez called the letter childish and unprofessional. “It’s an embarrassment for Indian Trail, and it’s an embarrassment for North Carolina,†he said.
    Waddell said he is resigning as of Jan. 31. He is in his first term on the board, and the four-year seat expires in December 2015.
    In a letter to the community that was written in English, Waddell elaborated on his reasons for leaving.

    He expressed frustration with what he saw as runaway development in the town as well as concerns with how requests for public information were being handled. In November, the council tabled a plan to establish more fees for some public records and add more restrictions on how records could be viewed.
    Waddell, a plumber, said he thought he would be more effective by coming to board meetings as a citizen and speaking out on issues. He said he also needed to devote time to mount a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party’s platform for Kay Hagan’s U.S. Senate seat.
    Town Manager Joe Fivas said the council will determine the replacement process for Waddell later this month or in early February. The fast-growing town in western Union County has a population of about 35,000.
    Waddell ended his four-sentence resignation letter by paraphrasing a Klingon proverb: “Perhaps oday is a good day (to) resign.â€

    If you know the Klingon language, you have far too much free time. Get out of the house and do something with your time.

    Everyone knows that the Romulan's were the pimp's and bitch slappers on both sides of the neutral zone.......I've never understood this fascination with Klingon's.......I've always hated how the writers on everything after the original gave the Klingon's ships the distinction "Bird of Prey"/"Warbird" When it's what the Federation called the Romulan ships in the original......And it was the Romulans that came up with the "Cloaking Device" Not the Klingon's.....
    The original Romulan Bird of Prey from the Shatner TV series........

    Plurals do not require an apostrophe.

    The "s" does the job.
