Thanks for asking Jered,
It is my opinion that the King IS the Circus.
As the video rolls at the end of the last council meeting, there is even a citizen bouncing down the isle actually SINGING Circus Music! Therefore, I would have to believe that I am not unique in that opinion.
Regarding the "Victim". The Victim was the victim of a REAL crime that REALLY took place in Miles City. I certainly will not ask that person to speak up. Many may already know of whom I speak, but you will not hear their name from me - as the Victim of the crime deserves the right to anonymity. Exposure of that victim would be the reference to the re-victimization.
Regarding a Recal Petition...
A recall is a process by which the voters can remove an elected official due to ineffectiveness or abuse. This differs from an Impeachment in that it is a voter driven event whereas the impeachment process is from within the council itself. Either is an option, but a recall is the prefered democratic procedure since it involves the vote of the public. Impeachment is more like a legal proceding. For a Recall, a petition must be sined by people willing to have their name listed on a public document. Most active people will decline to sign because it automatically "blackballs" them. This is unfortunate. A recall does in no way preclude the Mayor from running in the recall election, and does not prevent him from winning. One might sign a recall petition simply because they want the issue to go to vote and prove their person right. It is unfortunate that people are "afraid" to stand up and sign for fear of retribution. That is tragically the normal course of abuse - it lays silent.
The people I feel the most pity for are those who voted for Butch Grenz in good faith that he would be a good leader. Surely they must be horrified. I pity them, and I forgive them. Now is the time to take action. Stop the cycle of abuse and start Miles City on the road to recovery. We cannot change the past - but we can improve the future. It's not too late!
RECALL MAYOR BUTCH GRENZ!
