Don’t write off Mark Hall without allowing him to make his case to new commission PDF Print E-mail

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, Steve Brooks, Liberal

I appreciated and enjoyed the recent letter from Tabby Young to the editor. Besides being on point, it was short. When letters are a whole page long, I not only lose interest but I lose track. The attack on the city council, city manager and the people who work for the city was extremely bad for the City of Liberal.  

The reality of the sky is falling and the world has come to an end needs to quit. If I had a $100 million and was looking for a place to invest in, it would be not in a community that cannot get along. For all practical purposes, the ones screaming the loudest have won. There will no be no incumbents in this election. 

If they really want to get rid of Mark Hall, they would be in the position to do same with new commissioners. I am not really a Mark Hall fan, but I am not certain what the city manager is supposed to do. If we get a new one, will it be better or worse? The commissioners put in a minimum of 10 hours a weeks and earn a grand sum of $500 a month unless you are mayor, and then you get the really big bucks.  

Everyone who is running for commission should contact existing commissioners and ask for an hour or two of their time to talk individually. Maybe for coffee or better yet a beer. If they try to meet in a group, someone always takes over the group. If they meet individually, they will have their input and opinion. 

The new commissioners need to meet the commissioners on an individual basis. I think each candidate should spend an hour or two with Mr. Hall to see if what they are hearing is correct. Then they can make up their own minds. I am sure Mr. Hall will give them time. You might not like what Mr. Hall has to say, but, at least, you will hear his side. It is possible that the commissioners and Mr. Hall have made some mistakes. The interesting part is they made their mistakes with the intention of helping Liberal and not to line their own pockets. 

This really applies to all citizens of Liberal. They should know the facts before taking a side.
