Allegations, health insurance benefit questions preceded Loughry's firing

There is nothing in the news report indicating criminal activity on the part of the City Administrator. There is a process for properly removing someone from their job, office, etc. Do it correctly. Not like some mean spirited child who kicks someone in the behind when their back is turned.

What's your reaction to the firing of Basehor city administrator Mark Loughry?

If there was no discussion outside of executive session or regular meetings, then why were two council members unaware of the matter and why was it done when the City Administrator was unable to attend? I think if you had information to support your allegations, presented it in a proper manner with good communication you would have had overwhelming public support. Instead it appears the three of you conspired behind the scenes to oust this guy for whatever personal agenda you all have.

If there was a theft then by all means, prosecute away! However, the manner in which this was handled shows the immaturity and backroom small-town politics that are currently in place with the Basehor City Council. If there were improper acts occurring, follow the proper channels, address it per the contract, inform the public and handle it appropriately. Do not violate the open meetings act. If this was done with the best interest of the town in mind, then do it correctly, with integrity, not with the good 'ol boy system and save the City the costs associated with defending a lawsuit.

Mertz was shady and manipulative before he took an unopposed seat and further proves it. Now he and his cohorts are going to cost the City of Basehor much money to defend this lawsuit or pay a settlement. Way to go! Small town minds, small town good 'ol boy actions. Where is the recall petition?
