Anoka Councilman, Jeff Weaver says-it's-against-the-rules-that-govern-this-body, but let's do it anyway: Instructing staff to craft a letter of support for Anne Weyandt during Open Forum. (Weyandt being the beleagured president of Anoka Technical College/ ATC.)
Anoka Mayor Bjorn Skogquist, aka new ATC employee, Bjorn Skogquist, guides it through by asking; What exactly do you need Madame President aka my boss-in-trouble-trying-to-smooth-things-over-without-changing-your-ways?
There is to be no public or even city council discussion.
Casual Observer asks, "What about that recent 51-4 no-confidence-in-madame-president vote by the faculty union? The people in the know?"
So, a letter of endorsement and fiction is to be written.
Will Bjorn Skogquist, Mayor of Anoka, or will Bjorn Skogquist, Business & Education Solutions Manager, employee of ATC, write and/or sign the letter?
On May 27, 2008 these people (the mayor and his council) will be discussing some fine points of ethics and conflicts of interest.
