No excuse for Seminole City Council’s antics

Editor:
The Seminole City Council is a nonpartisan legislative group placed into office by the electors of the city of Seminole. It appears since 2007 that some of the council members are having difficulty understanding the definition of “nonpartisan.” With so many issues being decided by a 6-1 vote, one may be asking if a council’s member’s political preference is interfering with their decision.

If partisan politics are involved it would explain why some issues are being questioned – a practice which may not have occurred in the past. Ignoring or evading the questions only creates more questions. Seminole residents resent the constant bickering taking place at city hall. They are exposed to the antics of our congressional leaders on a daily basis in Washington, D.C., so there is no excuse for the same actions taking place in the local community.

Censure is a political action usually employed on the national level. For a member to initiate such an action on the local level may indicate a lack of legislative experience and ability to solve problems. In addition, it puts the other members in the uncomfortable position of voting on a motion, which should not have been made. Maybe it would better serve the public if the councilor responsible for the censure motion would focus more attention on their unmet campaign promises.
