take exception to Anniston City Councilman Ben Little's statements that the city manager position was becoming the Anniston Idol contest.
It's apparent that Little does not know what it is like to have so many people hold him and his abilities in such high regard that they would write in or call on his behalf — not because they were asked to, but because they felt this was the best thing for Anniston.
As is usual in most local politics, we seem to have some elected officials who grandstand, trying to make their name known rather than improve the city they represent. When elected officials fail to live up to what their constituents want, they are usually reminded of this in the next election.
The councilmen may want to think about this before they vote their decision, which may be based on arbitrary criteria they had previously set for themselves, and fail to look at the character, integrity and innate qualities of an individual.
