Mayor Stewart rose to his full glory as the king of Paonia when he ordered Chief Ferguson to evict former Trustee Watson from the last council meeting. Sadly, Chief Ferguson complied, choosing to serve the mayor's prejudice rather than the Constitution. The mayor invited her to the podium and then threw her out because he doesn't like her and didn't like what she had to say. Her crime was pointing out the mayor's double standard. After encouraging "his board" to spend $350,000 of the public's money without posting an agenda notice, moments later he declared they could not authorize a letter of support for a matter that was on the agenda.
A mayor who has and uses police power to silence his critics is a dangerous tyrant. If we are still America in more than name only he should be thrown out of office. Download an unedited clip of the incident: https://gofile.io/?c=3YsWrG.
