Mayor Cy Sun was a guest on the Bob Rivers radio show on 97.5 FM this morning (link to the podcast here - go to part 3 for July 25th). Is he a crotchety old man? Yes, even likable in some ways. Is he sincere? Perhaps. Is he embarrassing? To many, yes. But none of those reasons amount to a recall. A recall must be based on facts, not emotion or the mayor's motives. If he truly wants to "clean up corruption at city hall" as he claims, he must do so legally and without malice.
The reason we MUST recall Mayor Sun now is his repeated disregard for the laws that govern his role as mayor. He refuses to follow the law and promises to continue to do so. The city, along with Mayor Sun, are liable for his actions. There is too much at stake, both financially and to our sense of community, to allow him to continue.
This blog will detail Mayor Sun's repeated abuse of power, strong-arm tactics and reckless disregard for the law in the coming days. Stay tuned for the other side of story.
