Let Mayor Sun do his job
July 25, 2012 · Updated 5:04 PM
It's very disturbing how the members of the Pacific City Council have been mistreating Mayor Cy Sun.
Since upon assuming office, the City Council have been hostile to him.
Where is the so-called "honeymoon period" that's usually accorded newly elected public officials upon assuming office?
I have a strong suspicion that the members of this council are the "good old boys" of the former mayor and of the City of Pacific, and the presence of an outsider is anathema to them. Or perhaps it could be that the mayor's name is Cy Sun and his ethnicity is Asian? Well, I hope not. But it seems, from my point of view, that those could be the reasons.
Also, if the former administration officials of this city were really a fantastic team, as they claimed to be, how come they were voted out by the people of Pacific, and Cy Sun won the position? In fact, he even won it as a write-in candidate.
From what I heard there were rampant corruptions, inefficiencies, and that a "good old boy" system prevailed in the former administration. And those were the reasons the people of Pacific needed to change their mayor.
Yet, they questioned Mayor Sun's credentials and war medals he had won in the Korean War upon assuming his office. And rudely and offensively, too.
The people of Pacific City have spoken: they elected Cy Sun as mayor. Let him do his job. The City Council should give its all-out support and cooperation to the mayor. That's the way it should be and that's the way it had been in every city all over America.
