Dew urges Council to hold group accountable

Comments

Good job

I am amazed at how the Mayor barks at people and council members. what in the world is going on. I learned a long time ago when someone reacts like this, they must have some guilt on them.

The City Council looks bad for not standing up to a bossy Mayor. They can overrule his quick meeting adjourned, which seems to be his favorite thing. All they have to do is take a vote and so now. Why would councilman Johnson put up with being treated this way?

Good strategy

Challenging elected officials in public and on their nickel is a good move. Keep after them. They like being big cheeses - this issue could literally throw the bums out.

Aside from Dew, who else will be challenging these go-along council members next cycle?

People are talking about it now. There is a lot of interest and Many problems so there should be candidates.

Attending the meetings and holding our elected officials . . .

accountable is the key. The officials want to hold a meeting say and do what they want without any questions asked.

Mr. Dew you need to know your place, who gave you permission to attend their meetings and question them? They want to know just who do you think you are.

Well let me tell them, you are "the man." Continue to hold them accountable.
