No more Tantrums and Disrespect
Voters, now is our chance to remove the two rude, mean-spirited Council members and get five professionals to represent us.
Imagine council meetings where Dave Atkinson doesn’t storm off the dais using curse words when he doesn’t get his way. Or a meeting where Marie Fellhauer and Dave don’t roll their eyes and tell speakers they are wrong, or liars, during public comments. Seriously, would you let your kids behave that way?
Let’s not forget the time Dave and Marie ambushed Mike Dugan during his campaign event at the Moose Lodge two years ago. This behavior wouldn’t be accepted at El Segundo Middle School.
Time to be an example and tell our children why candidates’ character counts.
I know who I won’t be voting for.
