Council members deserve support

By Staff | Nov 2, 2009

To the Editor:

I would like to make a plea to the citizens of Winnebago to get some sanity. The issue concerning our city council, administrator and employees has gone beyond the realm of reality; it’s like a fire out of control. Allegations can be made by anyone, but that doesn’t really make it true.

Any entity, private or public, should endeavor to work together to create harmony and success, not take shots at each other in public. The members of our city council are local business people who are serving you, with many issues from budget to someone’s cat in a neighbor’s tree. It is a thankless job with little public support. This is the best city council we have had for many years. They are law abiding, honest and hard working, with no personal agenda and a sincere desire to carry out the business of our local government for your benefit. We should be thankful we have people like this to serve our community. Are you so smart that you can be judge and jury without facts? Who among you is that wise? It is easy to criticize.

Look in the mirror, you should be ashamed of yourself.

C.W. Burkett, Winnebago
