Timothy Witherow: Embarrassing Atwater

April 25, 2013 

Strike one, Jeff, was your embarrassing antics as you screamed and stomped during a council meeting over "secret numbers." The mayor had to meet with you about your childish behavior.

Strike two, you shaved your head to protest the utility increase made necessary to offset the sanitation fund bleeding $60,000 a month, a condition you and your brother caused by failing to take action with smaller, responsible increases over the past 11 years. I repeat, you shaved your head!

Strike three, you accuse "someone" of stealing page four of minutes from a committee meeting that happened years ago and asked the chief of police that a felony investigation be launched.

Congratulations. Not only has your behavior embarrassed this town, but you've somehow managed to surpass your brother as the town fool.
