Freeport has five new council members and on Monday night they got beat down by the Mayor and Alderman Klemm. Only Andrew Chesney understood the real issue facing the Council. It was a question of power, and the Mayor and Klemm said to them – To Hell with you. Klemm lectured the new alderman in condescending manner. Basically, Klemm told them – you are stupid – you just don’t understand. Alderman McClanathan responded and capitulated. We need leaders and Andrew Chesney cannot do it alone. Someone should tell Klemm that he should worry a little less about training kitchens downtown, and start addressing the deteriorating conditions in his own 1st Ward. Oh well, I guess that is too much to expect from the man who thinks he is Mayor.
