The arrest warrant issued for City Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie was recalled Tuesday after she appeared before a judge to discuss money she owes to her former campaign manager. Gillespie did not have time to comment on the matter before Tuesday night's City Council meeting, but she did say her 1988 Ford Bronco had been repossessed earlier that day in connection with the legal dispute.

Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie has paid off a $15,000 debt to her former campaign manager, one month after her car was impounded for auction. On Friday, Gillespie's attorney delivered a cashier's check to Harvey Englander, who managed her successful 1988 council campaign, ending a two-year legal battle over how much money Gillespie owed Englander for his services. The check covered the original debt, plus interest and legal fees.

A former campaign manager for Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie said Wednesday that he will ask a court to rule her in contempt for missing a recent debtor's hearing to discuss her delinquent $10,000 campaign debt from 1988. "She has never paid one dime of her debt," said Harvey Englander, who managed Gillespie's successful 1988 campaign and alleges that she is using illness as an excuse to dodge court appearances.

Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie, whose term of office was extended from two years to four, Wednesday described as "sour grapes" a lawsuit that was filed trying to block the extension. Gillespie, 34, said the lawsuit filed by defeated 1988 council candidate Margie L. Rice and resident Grace Epperson has no merit and is merely a personal attack on her. The suit named Gillespie and three other members of the council.
