Letter: Stop bashing mayor, council
As a lifelong resident of Willmar, I know the former and present mayor and City Council members. It is very frustrating to read the West Central Tribune’s continual public bashing of individuals who are credible and dedicated public servants. We, the voters, elected them because they have built decades of trust and respect in our community.
Therefore, if the Tribune’s report of disharmony exists between our elected officials and the recently hired city administrator, I am led to question the latter as these longtime citizens’ honorable motivation is recognized and appreciated as is their community involvement.
Our city’s progress to constructively move forward will only be accomplished if we remove the good ole boy/girl mentality from City Hall and stop the West Central Tribune’s mischaracterizations of our elected officials.
