MASON CITY – Max Weaver called for the immediate resignation of council person Janet Solberg after the Globe Gazette revealed no evidence supported her claims of racism from citizens opposed to a failed pork plant.

Mr. Weaver, a Mason City citizen and city council candidate, thanked the Globe Gazette for its investigative work in pouring through hundreds of emails connected to Janet Solberg and the failed Prestage pork plant. Using the state’s largest newspaper, she made outrageous claims that citizens who did not agree with her on the pork plant (she strongly supported it) were to some degree, racist. She supported claims from Dr. Ron Prestage, who also used the media to lash out at Mason City and North Iowans who opposed his plant, calling them “kooks and racists”.

“Janet Solberg should resign effective immediately,” Mr. Weaver said.  “She should tender her formal resignation to Brent Trout and step down from our city council.  She should do this for herself and for the people of Mason City.”

As Mr. Weaver made his way to the podium to speak, Janet Solberg left the room, got in her vehicle and drove away.

“And by her leaving that chair tonight… that tells me a lot.”

Watch the video:

Janet Solberg, Mason City councilwoman, who agreed with a pork industry executive that "racists and kooks" helped thwart a hog kill plant. The Globe Gazette proved no evidence exists to support her claims.
