Citizens of Muscatine, IA demand that the City Administrator be terminated

This petition had 449 supporters

We, the residents of the City of Muscatine demand that the Muscatine City Council terminate the City Administrator effective immediately for his actions that were not in the best interest of the residents of the City of Muscatine. He has wasted time and resources that can never be reclaimed at our expense. He has been quoted as saying, "I run this city."  That means that the chaotic state of our city government and the poor choices that have been made need to rest at his feet. This man is employed by the citizens of Muscatine and we would like to see him gone so that we can choose someone who will act in the best interest of the citizens of Muscatine. 

Was a driving force behind impeaching the mayor. Fought transparency releasing details of expenses related to impeachment to WQAD. WQAD reports that when they did receive documents the details were redacted. What are they hiding? Does this violate Iowa open records laws?

Fought transparency in releasing 2015 budget and details of China trip. When audit came out refused to acknowledge the results or make changes to acknowledge the recommendations of the auditor. This audit was also one of the reasons used to impeach the mayor and the results supported the mayor asking for the audit. 

Was responsible for recordings of closed session city council meetings. His office lost one and did not make sure there was an audible recording of another. We have to ask if he participated in violating open meeting laws. 

These are just a portion of issues that have obstructed transparency in our city government. Please feel free to mention any other issues you have had with his performance in the comments.
