  1. Can’t blame him for leaving with the Mayor always going to his own attorney because he doesn’t trust anyone in the city.

    City Manager fired
    Police Chief retires
    City Attorney resigns

    Who is next?

  2. What exactly did he do for the last 36 years I’ve lived and played in ANTIOCH I’ve seen no improvement to my town so what does it matter if he goes they will just appoint some other person not from ANTIOCH to take his place

  4. Cleaning house is good in my book. It’s the first step to changing a culture.

    What else can Antioch lose? Action and change is what we need. But you better believe the new mayor will be watched like a hawk with his actions next.

  5. Good luck in your future endeavors somehow I feel your services will be greatly missed a voice needs to be Beyond the council

  6. Has anyone been down to the new launch ramp that place is a dive ANTIOCH has turned a blind eye to the free ramp and to the old Rogers point that place would make a great park and there’s already a good little restaurant and the local hang arounds are mostly hard working or retired who don’t stand for the junkies and thieves that go to dumphreys
