At the last city council meeting three of our city council members almost drove the city of Elizabeth City off a cliff. Out of the blue and without any warning, one of them made a motion at the end of the meeting to immediately terminate our city manager, Rich Olson. They tried to ram a vote through when longtime City Councilwoman Anita Hummer was not there. Lucky for us, the motion did not pass and most importantly the swing vote was Councilor Kem Spence. Only God knows what pressure he has undergone, but he showed courage and character. Everyone in Elizabeth City should thank him.
