The following was written and submitted by Mike Gaviotis, Rock Springs, in response to an opinion piece by Joe Barbuto, Rock Springs, in response to an opinion piece by Mike Gaviotis

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.
