There are a few recall signs up, but nevertheless the recall is on the ballot and we must not forget the real reason. Thad Taylor and his family are gone from Alpena now, although they were real assets. That's over and done with. The big reason for the recall is the unethical, non-transparent way of operating in the city Council. A long, sizzling, jealous dislike for Mayor Shafto began fading when she retired, but that left Mr. Taylor, well-respected and highly ethical person, similarly feared and disliked. Acting against public interest, and entirely behind the scenes in a non-transparent manner, Karschnik, Nunnelly, and Waligora pursued their agenda. They should not be tolerated by us. Let's keep our council clean of those willing to play games in this clearly unacceptable manner.
