One of the television stations lead with a story about an upcoming fight at the regular Tuesday city council meeting in Owasso.  It seems that our local tea-baggist, Patrick Ross (aka Moe), has his heart set on ousting Rodney Ray from behind the city manager's desk.  Ray's contract expires at the end of November.  Ross doesn't want to renew it.

Normally, two councilors are the 'no' votes, Patrick Ross and Charlie Brown.  They're outnumbered three to two, something that perpetually irks Ross.  I guess that whole 'majority rules' thing isn't supposed to apply, but what do I know.

Ross makes vague accusations about alleged corruption, collusion, conspiracy, and those black helicopters hovering overhead.  I've challenged him to back up those allegations in comments on his blog, but he never allows the comments to appear. 

I'm planning to attend the council meeting on Tuesday with a camera and a recorder.  Chances are the news media will be there too.

Ed,
Sorry, but if Owasso keeps electing 'mouth breather' like that Ross guy to office, then I would submit they deserve whatever they are gonna get.  I wouldn't let that guy walk behind and pick up after my dog.  If I had a dog.

I knew I didn't want to move up there now for a reason.

Ross is a teabaggist, with extreme views on the proper role of government.  You should see his personal blog.  It's instructive regarding his character. The guy was against spending public money on a sewer lift station that was causing raw sewage to back up into homes.

But even here his views are a minority opinion.  He's making lots of noise as a freshman councilor.  I think it's doubtful he'll see another term after next year's election.

The attempt to oust Rodney Ray from the city manager job lost four to one in last night's meeting, with Mr. Ross casting that single vote.

We need a responsible person to run against this clown next year.

Going by your high school picture, even if you have aged badly, you gotta look better than that guy.  Instant head start!

I'll admit that I've thought about it.
