Re: November 22, 2018, article about Seminole Councilor Bob Matthews


In my opinion, Councilor Bob Matthews owes Seminole City Council, the presiding officer and city staff an apology for his disrespect and surly attitude regarding council process and procedures. He chooses to occasionally veer his focus away from issues of importance to the citizens of Seminole, and instead resorts to name calling and dredging up old gripes from years past.

I believe we should expect better of the senior member of our council.

The citizens of Seminole can be assured that I do not focus on the anger and negativity of others. My focus, as mayor, is to preside over the people’s business as efficiently and effectively as possible and to help provide leadership toward moving our city forward.
