Your View: Pity for Joplin

JOPLIN, Mo. — To the esteemed mayor and those City Council members who voted City Manager Mark Rohr out of office: Shame! Shame! Shame!

What is the problem with all of you? Are you jealous of Rohr because he can do a better job for Joplin than any of you can?

Which one of you could have stepped up to the plate and faced, like Rohr did, the biggest challenge Joplin ever had after the tornado? None of you could have, unless there was back-stabbing involved. Then all of you could have done the job very well.

Who is on your “get rid of” list now?

It’s such a pity Joplin has to have a City Council and mayor as we do. It’s a shame one or two of our councilmen have to put up with the rest of them.

It is time for new city leaders.

I applaud all of you who have written letters to The Joplin Globe. Maybe our esteemed city leaders will see them.
