Letter from Baxter Springs Mayor Jenifer Bingham

TYPED VERBATIM FROM A FAX RECEIVED NOVEMBER 1, 2012 AT 3:14PM CST.

Attn: Jordan Aubey, KOAM News
Statement from Jenifer Bingham, Mayor, City of Baxter Springs

I was elected to improve the city Government in Baxter Springs.  Some progress has been made but there is still work to be done.

A group of interested citizens has filed a successful petition to have a recall election.  If the councilmen are recalled, we will be able to make important improvements to city government.

Personally, I hope the recall is successful but will leave that to the good residents of Baxter Springs.

I believe there were violations of the Kansas Open Meetings Act by certain councilmen.  I have given all evidence, including photos, to law enforcement and I understand it is being investigated by the Attorney General.

I believe all allegations against me by Galena Attorney Kevin Cure are unfounded.  He continues to threaten legal action.  I will, of course defend any such action.

I continue to believe that it is not appropriate for certain councilmen to hire attorney Kevin Cure at the City's expense.  We have a very capable city attorney - appointed in accordance with Kansas statutes.  The good citizens of Baxter Springs will deal with this in the recall on Thursday.

Jenifer Bingham, Mayor
City of Baxter Springs
