She started off as a political watch dog, but now the tables have turned on Tifney Terry.

Terry's now under the magnifying lens while serving as treasurer for the city of Nitro.

If what goes around comes around, for Tifney Terry it's coming back with full force.

“I chose not to party myself with that and step down as head of the organization and have been for the last two years doing what I can to make things right here in the city of Nitro,” Terry said.

But now, she's the one being watched.

“I did work with Tifney Terry when she was investigating the city of Nitro as a partner for it. As for being a member or being paid by them, no,” former co-worker Karen Fritz said.

Fritz filed a lawsuit to have Terry removed from office because she didn't have an assurety bond within sixty days of becoming treasurer.

“The individuals behind this lawsuit aren't concerned about how government is running in the city of Nitro. It's purely personal,” Tifney Terry said.

Fritz, however, said it's all about the law.

“I would stop at nothing to get anyone removed from office that in a position that is abusing the office. It's just not her,” Karen Fritz said.

Ironically, it is the same kind of battle Tifney Terry once brought on, but now this time, she's the target.

Fritz said she plans to run for city council in the next election in 2008. Fritz is a member of Nitro Citizens Action Group.
