The council tried to slip mayor charles into the position November 30. Since only 3 trustees showed up that night they couldn't pull it off - the agenda called for her to resign as mayor then for the rest of the trustees to go into executive session to hire an administrator. If she resigned there would be no quorum for the executive session. I have personally heard the tape recording of the meeting and Mayor Charles says "there is no need for executive session, i can't be hired until I resign" After this failed first attempt the town clerk was asked why the job had not been advertised for. So the trustees have been dancing around trying to figure out how to pull it off and look innocent. Yeah they placed an ad BUT those other people who applied have no chance of being hired. If you know any of those people named as applicants call them and tell them to get an attorney!

forgot to mention that Inola does not have the proper resolution in place stating how much the position of town administrator pays, you can't legally vote on a resolution that benefits yourself - so in order for Mayor Cheryl Charles to be the administrator she would have to resign, let the trustess pass the required resolution setting the pay for this position - then the trustees can hire her. Gee will that look suspicious to anyone? Hope the other applicants (two of which I know to be very well qualified through their resumes but dont know them personally) will make themselves familiar with wrongful failure to hire lawsuits! The Inola Board of Trustees is doing exactly what Webbers Falls trustess all just got indicted for.

as soon as the Inola Trustees go ahead and hire Mayor Cheryl Charles at the next meeting January 25 2010 this is what they will be facing - yes it is called embezzlement when you spend taxpayers money without the proper ordinance/resolution in place
