Take Action for Responsible and Accountable Government in Mount Pleasant, Tennessee!

This petition had 101 supporters

The residents of Mt. Pleasant have for too long put up with an unresponsive and unaccountable City Commission. Over the past few years, we the residents have had to pay for the $6 million debt caused by the city’s botched water lagoon project – through a back-door tax on our utility bills. Time and again, the hard working people of Mt. Pleasant have had to pay for the mistakes of the few. And most recently, Mayor Shackelford and his allies have shamefully attacked other city officials. As a result of this behavior, our city has suffered economic damage and media embarrassment. We believe that we need a fresh start in order to move our city forward. We are therefore calling for new City Commission leadership.

We, the undersigned, call for the resignation of Mayor Bob Shackelford, Vice Mayor George Vestal, and Commissioner Mike Davis - and for immediate special elections to fill their seats.
