To the Editor:

Being we seem to need to replace the mayor? I have a few questions.

1. Why is a mayor needed? Let the city manager finish out the mayor’s term, but with no increase in pay!

2. If the mayor needs to be in office why can’t we have a special election. Instead of having the hack city council appointing a mayor.

3. Why can’t the water pad be put on hold? Is it really needed? Seems to me a total waste of money and way too expensive and I doubt it will be used very much after the newness wears off!!

4. Why won’t the city give tax breaks to any larger company that wants to settle here. We need other jobs here besides the casinos.

Just wondering.
