He said he consulted with law enforcement as well as a senior auditor in the state Auditor General’s Office before he decided.

Nicholson said his attendance would be a waste of his time and the committee’s.

"I think they pretty well know what happened and how it happened, and hopefully they’ll come up with some solutions to make sure it doesn’t happen again," he said.

Some TDC members say they are frustrated that the Auditing Committee hasn’t specified whether they will be asked to speak. Hardiman and Nabors said they are willing to attend but were trying to find out if they will be called to speak.

"I may not go if their intent is for me to just be present and listen," Hardiman said.

Nabors, who owns Liquid Surf & Sail, said it's a burden to have to leave his shop for an entire day.

"I still work for a living," he said. "These other county officials are getting paid."
