Dear Editor,

I note with confusion the brouhaha over the corruption in the Lee’s Summit City Council. It seems that Councilmember Diane Forte got caught with her hand in the taxpayer’s cookie jar. I thought the Council members were expected to serve the residents of the city, not to enrich themselves at the public trough.

Not to worry. Mayor Rhoads is admonishing the Council. Not for the corruption, but because “people are watching and are asking what is going on.”
