Congratulations, Tribune, on well-deserved and aimed brickbats to Debbie Peterson.
I think she personifies exactly what is wrong in our economic, environmental and political system today: She took it upon herself to act on behalf of the entire council but failed to first understand their wishes or thinking.
As mayor, she should represent the entire city and council, not just her own opinions.
I honestly believe she should be replaced on the Air Pollution Control District board. Councils work best as a team, and they should always work to protect the local resources and residents they represent.
It seems Mayor Peterson forgot the duties of her position.
