My challenges to the city of Mt. Vernon City Council members and mayor are first, stand up and show some backbone by uniting together and terminate the city manager’s contract. Fire him!
Second, allow the Fire and Police Commission to go forward and appoint Chris Deichman as the police chief for the city of Mt. Vernon. He has earned it!
It is increasingly frustrating seeing our city being controlled by one council person, the city manager and the mayor, all with their unrealistic agendas. I am asking anyone who loves Mt. Vernon and considers it their hometown to give consideration to running for city council or mayor in the next city elections.
