I agree with Mr. Barbuto that the City Councilors are elected to provide a check and balance for city government. The thing I am concerned with, is that they are going too far in their zealous rhetoric. It is starting to look like a “sour grapes” campaign against Tim Kaumo because their candidate lost and Tim won.
Some of these councilors seem to have perceived they were the Mayor. We don’t have 6-7 mayors in Rock Springs. We have one, who was fairly elected.
As I said, I think it would be better for all concerned if the councilors can find a way to get together with Tim and move the City forward in a progressive way. The good citizens of our fine community deserve nothing less.
