Other ways to offset mayor, will of people

March 25, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Everyone knows I have been vocal with Mayor Kintigh on some of his ideas on how to run Roswell. I can do that because I voted for him. Seems like some of our city councilors think they know better than the voters. For any councilor to propose an ordinance to...

In viewing the March 23 ‘nuclear option’ article in the RDR, I say, I hope City Councilor Natasha Mackey and the citizens are successful in dethroning “king” Kintigh. He said “the mayor is responsible for the success of the city.” Well sir, it’s...
