Like most 23-year-old college graduates, Montravias King says he’s doing “a lot of reflecting” as he assesses his future options.

Mr. King promised during his campaign that he would stay in the area to complete his term if elected. He has proven to be a man of his word. I have witnessed - and commented upon - some of his immature behavior/decisions on Council - the most egregious being this motion to fire City Manager Rich Olson WITHOUT CAUSE. A HUGE error, that Councilman Spence, fortunately, defeated. Having said that (which was, again a HUGE ERROR), Mr. King on Council can be very positive for our City. He brings a new, younger perspective, that blended with the knowledge & experience of some other members is needed. He can also serve as a tremendous role model for local young black men & women. He is a hard working college grad, trying to improve his community. Congratulations to Mr. King for obtaining his college degree, and remaining in EC to complete his 1st term on Council. I continue to expect good things from the young Councilman! Bill Hiemer

What a pity

That's just too bad.
