Our community is upset, and for good reason

Our community is very upset and rightfully so. Some members of the Lebanon City Council are proposing to eliminate the citys fulltime mayor position.

This proposal represents a significant change in the structure of city government.

It may be a change that is needed, but what bothers many is whether or not the change is being proposed for all the right reasons. Are those suggesting the change doing so with a pure heart?

Are they doing it because they genuinely want a better Lebanon or are they just trying to even a political score?

Is this an issue about what will make Lebanon better? Or is it an issue about petty politics?

This town doesnt need a city manager. The truth be known, it may have too many city managers now.

What this town needs is harmony.

It needs, as one person suggested earlier this week, a few good statesmen who want to serve Lebanon in Lebanons best interest and not for their own personal agendas.
