To the editor:
We the voters of Oconto are disheartened. Meeting after meeting, news article after news article, the behavior of the city council - the disrespect, vindictiveness shown toward the Mayor - is unbelievable. If the council would get off their power trips with the good old boys, maybe just maybe something would be accomplished. Better yet, if the council's whims were of such great interest to them, why didn't more of them run for Mayor?
There is a reason why the majority of voters elected this Mayor. It's time for a big change. No longer can one group of "good old boys" lead us down their trail. It's time for their ousting. The citizens voted for that change and her work has been proven to us. She has upheld her promise to all, but the council has come back with a vengeance, not to help and uphold what is the best interest of us, but to take away that which would work. It's only their whims they uphold.
A good example is the council gave the right to then-Mayor Fulton to appoint a city attorney. Now they want that choice, because it's not of their best interest. Wonder why that is? Our Mayor has proven time and again the right, honest and lawful way of the office is the best interest and needs of we the people.
As small as Oconto is, every friend and neighbor should live together in harmony and trust. We should know the people who speak and act for our better good, not to gain for themselves or to please their whims. April is the month to vote for your choice. Get out and just do it. Enough is enough.
