I have been following the news on city council actions with great interest.

    I have been following the news on city council actions with great interest.

    We are so lucky to have a councilman who is courageous enough to risk speaking out on a touchy issue. We need more community citizens like Bobby Baird. Let’s not try to hush up anyone who dares to give their opinion or bring to light any situation which we all should be concerned about.

    On the “closed meeting” issue, we should be very careful on this issue. We have had “closed City Council meetings” here in Crookston in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I was a regular attendee at City Council meetings at that time. City government can get pretty ugly behind closed doors.

    A word to the Mayor, even at the risk that you will use the “fricking” word on me… you are going to have to learn to take some real or imagined criticism without losing your cool.

    I hope more of our councilmen and Crookston citizens will get involved and take the risk of speaking out when something doesn’t seem right and that goes for me too.

    I would like to have a call in opinion show on our radio station late night too. A good way to air issues also.
