Your View: Show them the door

JOPLIN, Mo. — I have loved the Globe’s editorial pages with letters in support of Mark Rohr, Joplin’s city manager.

I have lived in Joplin since I was a small child, and I have been proud of how Joplin has come back from the devastating tornado and of the comments I continually read and hear from volunteers and others who heap praise on our great city.

Rohr has been responsible for much of the good we see here. Before the tornado, I saw how our downtown was coming back and continues to flourish with his leadership. It’s too bad our city council is blind to what others see every day. I don’t think that some of the council members represent us, and we should show them the door.

 Thank you, Mark Rohr, for all you have done and what you will do for us in the future.
