Your View: Deplorable tactics

JOPLIN, Mo. — Five members of the Joplin City Council have an agenda to get rid of the city manager. Their tactics are deplorable and should be resisted by all in Joplin because they are off-base. The city manager has done an outstanding job for Joplin, and the actions of some disgruntled workers should not result in Mark Rohr leaving.

Remember how they voted, including our photogenic mayor, and remove said members at the earliest opportunity.  Joplin needs a City Council that is willing to work for all, not for the political advantage of a few.
