LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Readers dismayed at aldermenâ€™s vote on Spruill
Wanda and Mike Thorne
I am writing as a citizen of Starkville to express my disapproval of and disappointment with the Board of Aldermenâ€™s decision with regards to Lynn Spruillâ€™s employment in the July 2 BOA meeting. I strongly disagree with the decision itself. I can see no reason why Ms. Spruillâ€™s employment should be terminated. Further, I opppose the way the decision was made, without even the most superficial gesture towards providing justification or the most hollow sign of respect for Ms. Spruillâ€™s eight years of service to the community. I applaud and strongly support Mayor Wisemanâ€™s veto and the positions of Aldermen Walker and Maynard in voting against the motion. I urge the board to reconsider the situation and allow the veto to stand.
