LETTER: Not everyone impressed with city delegation to Embetsu

To the Editor:

Once again it is spring in the land of Happily Ever After and the mayor’s thoughts have turned to travel.

Some time ago in his not so peaceful court he was rebuked for his travel plans to a far and distant kingdom. However, being the King of the land, he said to his court, nay I shall bring this back to court and I shall take even more of you on our journey. Now with the prospect of travel on their minds, who shall be the lucky ones to go on this great adventure?

The king thought long and hard, how shall I accomplish this. Ah,  I have an idea, I shall request my trusted advisor to come up with a plan to reintroduce this for a vote and wait until one of my opponents is missing and then I shall have my trip.

Once this is accomplished, whom shall I choose? In case of emergency, I shall take our fire specialist, you never know where or when his skills may be needed but whom else, ah, I have it, a scholarly person to help the king with the right words.

And there we have it, there will be peace in the kingdom or so the king thinks.  Methinks he has made a bad choice. The people of the realm are dissatisfied with his decision and will most certainly let him know.  All is not well in the land of happily ever after.

It is time the King looked after his kingdom, started playing  by the rules, start considering others in the land of Happily Ever After. You did not get elected to travel and skirt the rules of order. You lost the vote and you have brought the issue back against all rules of order. We have issues in the Kingdom,  Mr. Mayor. You should be looking after these and not travelling half way around the world to look at a fire hall.

Please reconsider your decision.
