Scearce: Don't sign the petition to recall City Councilman Phil Stinnett
My Fellow Citizens:
Having spent 16 years as a Joplin City Councilperson, I know how hard it is to be a Councilperson. You make decisions every meeting that affect peoples lives.
Councilperson Phil Stinnett, a former Councilperson and Mayor is a voice of reason and logic on the present City Council.
I find the statement by those circulating the recall petition, “People are afraid to leave their homes because there are not enough Public Safety Employees to take care of and protect them”, to be false and misleading.
lf a person approaches you and asks you to sign the recall petition, simply refuse and be on your way.
If you have signed a petition, contact the circulator and ask to be removed by crossing off your name, address and precinct with a line drawn through them. If you do not know the circulator, you can contact the City Clerk at City Hall, 602 Main Street and in writing give her your signature, name, address and precinct, and give her a notarized statement that you want to be removed from the recall petition, if and when she begins the certification process.
Allow Phil Stinnett the use his leadership skills and municipal government knowledge to navigate Joplin through these troubled times.
