Though national and state politics captures the lion share of people’s thoughts, local politics are closer to home and far more personal. Carolina Beach erupted this week!
(PortCityDaily.com) Tim Owens, who had served as the Carolina Beach town manager since 2006, tendered his resignation at the Carolina Beach Town Council’s Tuesday night meeting in what then-mayor Ray Rothrock protested was a move “compelled” by Shuttleworth and council members Bob Lewis and Sarah Friede. Rothrock resigned right after, as did council member Lonnie Lashley, leaving a three-member board now in search of new recruits.
City manager, Mayor and a council member, gone in an instant. Regardless of their political leanings, simply walking away from the obligation to serve that you promised folks isn’t good form. Having been on the losing side of many 6-1 votes, this comes across as childish.
