I’m so glad the city had the mayoral debate on television. I was very impressed with Alderwoman Deborah Fenske and her knowledge of city government.
More importantly, I was delighted she spoke out about the way the Jim Ash embezzlement case was handled last year. I did not know Mayor Brian Smith and City Administrator Henry Veleker offered Jim the opportunity to resign in good standing, with full benefits, even though he admitted to violating workplace rules.
Fenske also stated the City Council never got a chance to vote on that decision.
It’s time someone spoke up for the Waupaca citizens. Good luck, Deb Fenske.
You’ll have my vote.
