Medical update from your mayor


At a recent annual physical, it has been determined that I do not have leprosy or any other contagious diseases. So now, anyone, even city employees can feel free to talk with me at any time, and at any place, about anything that is troubling you. It is no secret, if Cedar Springs is going to be what it once was, it will take everyone working together. City planners, city council, city employees and all you good tax payers who pay the bills. I will have office hours at City Hall each Monday from 2-5pm. Stop in and see me!

 

Your mayor for an all new Cedar Springs. 

Thank you for your prayers and support, 

Bob Truesdale

Bob Truesdale is new city mayor


Bob Truesdale

In a strange turn of events, a newly elected member of City Council was voted in as mayor Monday evening.

“Amish” Bob Truesdale was voted in by the Cedar Springs City Council as the new mayor of Cedar Springs by a 4-2 vote. The City Councilors voted six times on two different candidates before they finally got the needed 4-2 majority vote.

Pam Conley was nominated by newcomer Patricia Troost, but could not get enough votes. Each vote ended in a 3-3 tie, with Troost, Conley and Truesdale voting for Conley, and Charlie Watson, Ken Benham and Ashley Bremmer voting no. Former Mayor Watson was nominated by Benham but refused the nomination so it did not come to a vote.

Watson nominated Truesdale, who said he thought Conley should be mayor, because when the City Council voted on the Red Flannel issue, she was the lone dissenting vote and seemed to feel an agreement could still be reached. He also noted that he had no experience.

Watson then explained why he nominated him. “With all due respect, you stated in open forum that you think the people should vote for mayor. If that’s the case, why would you not accept a vote of the people? I think you need to sit up here so that you can realize how much power you don’t have,” he said.

Truesdale then said that he did not want the position but would accept it if they voted him in, which they did, when Conley changed her vote.

“I will accept humbly and do the best I can,” said Truesdale.

Watson said that he would help him.

A mayor pro-tem will be selected in December.
