MASON CITY – Janice Easley of Mason City – known for her dedication, hard work and volunteerism over the last two decades – gave Mason City Mayor Eric Bookmeyer a piece of her mind Tuesday evening at the city council meeting.

Immediately following the agenda portion of the meeting was the 82 year-old Easley, sitting next to At-Large Council member Alex Kuhn having a pleasant conversation, when she was approached by Bookmeyer, who has previously stated that he favors “young people” with “fresh ideas.”

After Bookmeyer interjected himself into their conversation, Easley told Bookmeyer that he is a “snake in the grass.”

The incident was mostly recorded by NIT cameras until Globe Gazette reporter John Skipper intentionally stood directly in front of the NIT camera.

“You’re a dirty snake in the grass,” Easley re-iterated to Bookmeyer, pointing her finger at the mayor for emphasis.

“Go away,” Janice told Bookmeyer.

Bookeyer then sauntered off to another conversation.

To find out why Janice was so upset with the mayor, tune in later Wednesday for a one-on-one interview.
