    We just knew this was going to happen. They spend money like it was made on trees on that downtown. If we did that they would throw us in jail. When do we hold them accountable???

    Mason City has elected people to office that have no idea how to represent the citizens. They only represent the downtown elite mob and their followers who don’t have a clue either.

    Add the Globe Gazettes biased reporting meant to dumb down the voters and voila, you have a circus for a City Government.

    So the city has overdrafted 13m …but still building. If you did that you’d be arrested.
