Letter: What former Willmar mayors do?

I bet that the past mayors, Ray Pederson, Jack Lynch, Bill Ferguson and Ole Reynolds, are looking down on a town that they ran as mayors and are just shaking their heads, along with the two past mayors that are still with us, Richard Hoglund and Les Heitke.

Does anyone believe that any one of our past mayors’ objective was to have our city called dysfunctional? I cannot recall any of these great men ever refuse to sign a budget that ran our city.

Wake up, Willmar City Council members. This city does not belong to any one of you. You have become an embarrassment to this whole region, not just Willmar.

So please do us a favor and check your egos at the door. Let’s make Willmar a great city like it was when these great men ran Willmar.
