OPINION AND EDITORIAL

OPEN LETTER TO MONROE MAYOR ZIMMERMAN
March 28, 2012




Monroe resident Diane Elliott. Chronicle photo.
In my opinion it appears that Chad Minnick, who I have been told is your political consultant, has advised you, Mayor Zimmerman, to break the law.

By law, taxes can only be raised 1% a year without voter approval. I won’t vote to approve a tax increase. Will anyone else?

Mayor Zimmerman, you hired Jeff Sax as an economic development manager. It is time to let Jeff Sax do the job he was hired to do.

The North Kelsey property sale to Sabey/Walmart has not been finalized, no money has exchanged hands.

IT IS NOT A DONE DEAL.

The purchase and sale agreement will expire on June 30, 2012 (the date given by the city). Mayor Zimmerman, if you want Walmart here so badly, renegotiate the deal when the purchase and sale agreement expires, get back the two million dollars you gave away.

Tell Walmart to follow the laws and codes of North Kelsey. This time.

Don’t burden our chief of police with the task of negotiating a multi-million dollar deal. Get a Qualified Real Estate agent to represent the interests of the City of Monroe, not one working for Sabey/Walmart as you did the first time.

Mayor Zimmerman at last Tuesday’s council meeting, I pleaded that you become a hero to our community. A way to do this would be to give the families of Monroe a fun center/bowling alley that so many families, retirees and young people want. Something that has year round appeal.

How many developers would turn down a prospect that had an entire community behind it.

Mayor Zimmerman, bring us a Family Fun Center. Give our kids something to do besides hanging out in parking lots. Give our Senior Citizens a place to recreate. You have the time to put something together before the bonds are due. Be proactive.

Mayor Zimmerman, you can do it. Mayor Zimmerman, stop being such a disappointment to the people who elected you.
