Sorry To See Barriger Go

Editor:

I am truly sorry to read about George Barriger's resignation.

He and Dick Reese were the only two council members I felt truly had Payson's interest at heart. George was the calming member of the council who really studied the issues. He will be missed by the people of Payson.

I am disturbed that the Chief of Police has chosen to enter into the Payson politics. I have met Bob Edwards and even when I asked about other candidates, he never had a negative word to say about any of them and I did ask about all of the council members and those running.

I think this could and should have been handled in a private meeting with Mr. Edwards, or was this published in the newspaper for another reason?

This is not the first time this rumor has been heard.

Annice M. Colbertson, Payson
