The Letter of the Day
After the incumbent shenanigans at Tuesday's Council meeting, Quartzsite citizen's have been asking how our new mayor is doing in the face of so much hostility. Well, he seems pleased with the fact that he has acquired a new set of stationary, complete with Quartzsite Town letterhead. And he's using it to send Alex a letter a day...
One letter may have asked why certain Town employees were asked to sign confidentiality agreements, and could Taft please give back the contracts, with a letter of apology. Another letter may have inquired as to what documents Al Johnson the building official was witnessed removing by the arm load from Town Hall the other day. (I speculate that shredding them in the office wasn't authorized.)
Mayor Foster is enjoying the prospect of finally getting to the bottom of all those unanswered questions. He feels that there's so many questions that he's instituting a "Letter of the Day" policy in order to live up to Taft's March 23rd statement that "oversight and transparent actions are important to achieve fair and equitable treatment". Maybe Town Hall will become as transparent as Taft's motives in placing those items restricting the powers of the mayor on the agenda...emergency response my ass!
Do you have a question for the Town mismanager? Please feel free to post it here in the comment section. Maybe Mayor Foster will ask Taft to answer it!
