When City Councilman Bernie Herpin joked Wednesday that Richard Skorman’s ashes could be spread at the coal-fired power plant downtown when he died, some people laughed.
Others thought it was in poor taste.
So, what did Skorman think?
Skorman said Friday that he thought Herpin’s remark was funny.
“I didn’t take it seriously. I knew he was doing it in jest,” Skorman said.
“I didn’t laugh because I was too involved in what I was talking about, but I thought it was a pretty good joke,” he added.
