I couldn't help but read the Advocate Friday when council members Vernon and Zeller said it was time for people to have straight answers. This would be a first for a city that finds itself in a financial hardship.
I, Donnie Goode, took office and have missed two regular meetings since taking office. Those absences were for personal reasons. But when you are a council member like myself, who has not made this seat a career as Vernon and Zeller have, you are going to tackle the issues head-on.
I have said from day one the people of Junction City have been severely misled. Zeller and Vernon have said they will not seek reelection. To them, that is a council member without self-interest. If you don't want to run again, then you have no self-interest. Since it is a career for them, this is how it is.
