My Point Of View

Earlier this week, as a registered voter of Cordell, I signed the petition being circulated that calls for the resignation of Cordell Mayor Bob Plummer. I did not take that action hastily or without giving the matter a great deal of thought. It is no small thing to request an elected official to resign, but I feel it is necessary for Plummer to step down from the mayor’s office. Over the last many months, we have seen confidence in Plummer drop to near zero as he has mishandled situations with the fire department, ambulance service, code enforcement, and the police department, while at the same time appearing to micro-manage daily City activities up to and including deciding he should be the one to mark the graves at Lawnview Cemetery.
