    He’s here to see what can be done to accommodate Prestage, and find out if Bookmeyer’s apointment to replace Kuhn will play ball to his mansion directives. Death vacancies are golden opportunities for politicians.

      Wrong on both counts Peter. Prestage is history and there will be no appointment made by Bookmeyer. Having a “bad day”?

        “Bookmeyers Appointment”? that’s funny. So if he could get people to quit (instead of what happened to Kuhn) you think he could just appoint people? You think that is how government works? I am RELIVED you were not elected. There should have been a test to run for Clear Lake council but you would have quit half way through or failed it and declared it (like many other things) bullcr@p.

      The Prestage deal is dead here in Mason City. Let it die.
