Mayor Jack Seiler’s most virulent critic, Charlie King, sent an e-mail out to dozens of bigwigs today to say he and some “rebels” were forming a group to oppose Seiler.
King (second from left) sent out this photo of his “rebels” (Earl Rynerson on left, Ray Dettman on right, and Vicki Eckels with caption added …. see below –
Ready to Roll:
Rebels of the regime are gathering to put their petty differences aside to take on the 3 man un-Holy Alliance of Seiler, Roberts and Rogers and their nonresident police and fire union henchmen. Don’t be surprised if you hear more from these coalescing Concerned Citizens Against Jack Seiler. Special thanks to Cal Deal for making us look so good despite the backlighting.
The e-mail drew a strong response from the picture taker King references – Cal Deal.
There you go again, Charlie.
When I want to make my opinions known, I’ll do so myself and, as always, I will sign my name to them. You should know better than to imply that I do or do not hold certain positions, that I do or do not like certain members of the City Commission, and that I do or do not like the state of our Police Department.
Further, I want to make it abundantly clear that there is no “coalescing Concerned Citizens Against Jack Seiler” or anything like it. There is no budding conspiracy, and those who ate and talked yesterday evening were people of differing views who were there to eat and talk. Period.
This is precisely why I have a filter on my email program that sends everything from you directly to my TRASH — unread. You don’t know when to shut up.
Dettman, on the other hand, said this about the group -
Intentions good government , No recall, and I Already told Charlie I would Vote for Him if He ran for Mayor.
While we are a group of concerned citizen activists, we have long convened to socialize over food and drink, converse about the local political and civic scene with a lovely diversity of opinion; we do not always agree but we certainly let opinions flow freely. We arrive as friends and leave as friends. Charles claims he was trying to be humorous, he does have a sense of humor though it wasn’t particualrly evident in his morning posting about forming an alliance to rebel against incumbents. No matter, I still like him.
