That’s an Alderman’s Job

11 Jan

At the Pevely board of Aldermen meeting at which Terry Thomas was reinstated as city administrator, alderman Marlin Hahn, who flipped his vote to side with Thomas, had this to say:

Hahn said Thomas needs to watch spending and be evaluated every six months.

“We need to keep track of what he’s doing,” he said. “This has been an eye-opener for all of us.”

He has to watch spending? Marlin, you’re on the board. You vote on the budget and on every expenditure. While it is true that spending needs to be controlled in Pevely, it’s YOUR job to control it.
