Can't we all just get along?
I have been hearing that from some
candidates in the current election cycle as well as the previous where
the seat was filled for vacating councilor Roop. Iíve been hearing "I
want to work with the council" or "I'm tired of the division", but what
does that mean? And which side of the council are you siding with?
(even though we really know the answer to that one).
The truth in these comments from the likes of Martinson, is they want to put the council back as a rubber stamp for the mayor, the midtowners, and the old money.
As far as I can tell David Patrick did nothing for his own district and was there just to side with the cockroaches, and since Roscoe Turner has been involved the cockroaches seem to be running for cover when the light is shined upon their deeds.
Jack Henderson now sits in the seat that Joe Williams once sat at, you remember Joe, the guy who gave a ride to a woman who was not his wife, then called the police out, claiming she stole his wallet, which was found in the backseat of his own car (I wonder how it ended up there?) He then proceeded to call the police department racist...
Those are just two examples of former councilors who "worked with the council", now look at those remaining, Sullivan (who doesnt live in his district, is rude, and acted like a 13 year old at the previous city council meeting), Neal (does she have an opinion of her own?), and Christiansen (The Poster Child for the appearance of impropriety)... are these the people they want to work with?
