It has been several years since we spoke and commerizorated re David Kelly. I reached out to you because I knew he despised you. So, I figured that you must be doing something right! 😊
As I shared back then, I am David’s next door neighbor and once considered him one of my very closest and most trusted friends. My kids were always running over to see Debbie, or hanging out with Chad (who was like an older brother to them all).
I was close to David too. As close if not closer than any of his other friends (there weren’t many). At least I thought we were close! I supported him in all his political endeavors (although often disagreeing with him), I was loyal to a fault. I even vigorously took his side as a board member of the Saddlebrook HOA when the HOA sued him over his decision to put a roof on that was not compliant with our bylaws. Which hind-sight being 20/20 now appears intentional and manipulative, as he selfishly used others to fight his battles for him.
As we previously discussed, our friendship was destroyed when the week before Debbie died, my wife of 25 years filed for divorce (out of the blue). I was caught off guard and at a complete loss to understand what had happened. Because of Debbie’s death, and the impact it had on our children, I asked my ex to postpone it for six months to give them a little time to heal after the loss. She adamantly refused, which at the time I didn’t understand.
Only later did I discover that she and David Kelly had been having an adulterous affair, while we were married. The whole time I thought she was cheating on me, I never in a million years would have suspected it was with him! Which sort of puts the pieces together, now that Debbie was out of the way they would be free to pursue their relationship together.
Strangely, the minute she filed for divorce, David began showing up and attending all my children’s events at school. I even found that my ex had removed from the primary parent contact list and had David Kelly listed instead. Crazy right!
This is how my friendship, loyalty, trust, and support was paid back by my friend David Kelly!
For one reason or another their budding relationship failed. Karma has a way of working that way! I too have moved on and am happier than EVER! (honestly)
You know, betrayal is an odd thing. You never really get over it. Five years since, and he still avoids me. He’s never been man enough to apologize or ask for forgiveness. Apparently he is incapable of admitting when he is wrong. I am sure that in his mind, he was a victim! I true narcissistic sociopath if there ever was one!
But, I still live next to that piece of garbage, and know the REAL David Kelly, and want to do everything I can to stop him from holding public office ever again!
As I told Bobby Lindamood, if he would screw over one of his best friend for his own personal interest, you know he will screw over all of Colleyville and not think twice!!
I’ve supported Lindamood’s campaign and put large signs in my yard, front and back along Cheek-Sparger. There has not be more and I think Local News Only is the key to stopping him!
Please let me know how I can help in our efforts to save the citizens of Colleyville!
Look forward to hearing from you!
