Wanda and Mike Thorne
I am writing as a citizen of Starkville to express my disapproval of and disappointment with the Board of Aldermen’s decision with regards to Lynn Spruill’s employment in the July 2 BOA meeting. I strongly disagree with the decision itself. I can see no reason why Ms. Spruill’s employment should be terminated. Further, I opppose the way the decision was made, without even the most superficial gesture towards providing justification or the most hollow sign of respect for Ms. Spruill’s eight years of service to the community. I applaud and strongly support Mayor Wiseman’s veto and the positions of Aldermen Walker and Maynard in voting against the motion. I urge the board to reconsider the situation and allow the veto to stand.
