He has done more as mayor than any previous mayors.
In all fairness, he has worked hard. Very hard. But he has accomplished next to nothing. Seriously. He fixed the pool, bought two garbage trucks, and built a one-lane bridge to let two rich couples drive to their island homes. Am I missing anything?

Oh, yes. He forced a poor church to sell its sanctuary, and divided the town several times by trying to ram controversial decisions down our throats without any effort at consensus-building.

Anything else?

If he stays in office and continues to fight with the citizens of Little Falls and the Common Council, then I would expect some serious turnover in City Hall in the election this Fall. We have the Treasurer and the Clerk running for their jobs, and I cannot think they want to have an angry electorate going to the voting booths ...
The city treasurer and clerk are both part of the problems. They both need someone electable to run against them.

I just heard from a trusted source at City Hall that Robert Peters has resigned from his position as Little Falls Mayor as of Monday morning. Is this true?
If I were you I'd find a new trusted source. Peters remains.

That's too bad. But look at the bright side: Topix would be boring without Bobby to discuss.

I must say that I feel really bad for the Treasurer and the Clerk, because Bobby is going to be a giant albatross around their necks going into the election this year.

They both are inept for the job they have. That has nothing to do with the mayor.

I agree. But there is someone in the city who wants her job, so she will not run uncontested. Normally an off-year election doesn't turn out much vote. But if there are 1000+ angry citizens who show up at the polls to cast their vote to punish the Peters administration, that does not bode well for any incumbent in the city. A true gentleman would not drag down his friends and co-workers in an act of stubborn defiance.
Hell to pay

She volunteered for Peters' re-election campaign, and carried around petitions for him.

That means she's a goon, and has got to go.

Ask the council and the city lawyer about how many mistakes she makes.
What about the city website? it took her over a year to get info on the site.
What about coming to work late everyday then leaving with the treasurer to go out to breakfast and then leaving early. Spending the day figuring what she's going to eat for lunch. Have you ever read the minutes, she has more misspelled works than most can count.
Don't we have any professionals that would like a nice job.
