Ellisville under the big top
To the Editor:
The Ellisville City Council has turned into a circus and has its fair share of clowns.
Led by ringleader former Mayor Matt Pirrello and his misguided followers, the latest antics of this group are neither entertaining nor amusing.
The citizens of this community should be outraged and I hope that they are paying as much attention to the disruptive and distracting actions of this elected group as the city police does who regularly lurk in the shadows along Kiefer Creek, Old State and Clarkson roads looking for speeders.
When the next election occurs, the citizens should act appropriately and rid themselves of this divisive group once and for all. These officials remind me of the fat cat union leaders who attempt to use destructive strong armed tactics to further their own agenda rather than supporting the wishes of their constituents that they were elected to represent in a positive manner.
It is mind-boggling that with the issues facing this community, Pirrello has focused his efforts on doing everything possible to distract Mayor Paul from getting anything accomplished.
I commend the mayor for sticking it out while he is surrounded by such a group of morons. It must be terribly frustrating.
Clearly, the motives of Pirrello are political and not advantageous to the community. The irresponsibility that he exhibits while ignoring the popularity of this elected mayor and the outcry of the citizens who oppose the Walmart development is only hurting the community and its citizens.
While not a resident of Ellisville myself, I live just outside the city limits. Ellisville is the closest business community and one which I must travel through to get anywhere else, so the decisions of this Council affect me daily.
Other neighboring jurisdictions have their share of issues on the city councils, but fortunately not to the magnitude of Ellisville’s frivolity. What a disgraceful waste of energy, money and time unnecessarily. They should all be embarrassed.
I dread to see what will come next from under this big top. Something positive would be a refreshing change.
