My My, The Belleville Mayor and the Mayor of Pontoon Beach should get together and share the king's crown, they seem to be from the same barrel. Notice to both areas at election time VOTE OUT your present mayor. My prayers are with Jon, and my prayers are with Jon's family and friends also. It is a SHAME that when a person tries to do their job RIGHT, the Mayor decides they should be fired.But politics is like that it is The Mayors Way or The Highway. Rub was well respected here in Granite City, the police officers HATED to see him go. Belleville's gain was our loss. Just because Rub would not cater to POLITICS, and because he cared for the residents and the police officers of Belleville, he's fired. The Mayor must NOT have a good reason for firing Rub since he will NOT tell us why.
