In the past for Town Managers we have an alleged pedophile who was arrested and went to “Kiddie School”, a Chief of police who was a US Traitor, Stith and Greene and their illicit sexual affairs at the old fire station etc etc and what is funny, and really very sad is the fact that attorneys and outsiders can see it but people such as yourself cannot see what is happening. And who complained about Ms. Tebo and what was happening to White Springs? We compiled information given to us and fought for the firefighters on their behalf. We would not have had the facts which we presented to the commission without the assistance of the White Springs officials who do not wish to be named but who wanted someone to handle the dirty work. But what we have heard of late is that Jennings and Jasper now wish to be like White Springs…corrupt. How exciting is that? Now we have no law abiding towns.
As a woman starting a career in the 60’s when all things were not equal, I would not have had the opportunities for success in my life if I did not have work ethics which would be separated from my personal feelings. Yes I was outspoken if I needed to be because something was wrong but the people I worked for were not as corrupt as the Town of White Springs and respected me.
I even volunteered for special events and was denied since I was the pre-parade coordinator and chairman of various events of the Minneapolis Aquatennial for ten years and I started Oxcart Days for the small town of Crookston, implementing everything from parades, to various events and theatrical events. Everything I did was placed in writing so people could continue without me. I feel our events are boring and need new events but in order to have a great event one needs to work a year in advance. We do things at last minute.
If you are happy with the way the Town is operating, and you apparently are, may God bless you. Obviously you do not recognize the many things which are wrong and do not feel they need to be corrected.

PS Joe and I were not the only ones thrown out of town meetings. And that would include someone close to you who we respect and believe in. And why, because we wished to provide an attorney general’s opinion to the council.
