Uncle Alan - In the Spotlight - Again

Remember Alan (former mayor Jeff Meyers' uncle by marriage) Willoughby?
Remember how his appointment to fill an open seat on the city council ended up with a KOMA investigation and the JoCo DA issuing a letter of rebuke?
Remember how he wound up back on the Planning Commission?  How his nephew(by marriage) broke a tie vote to appoint him to that position.

Well, it looks like Uncle Alan found a way to get back in the spotlight.  And, IMHO, not in a good way.  Remember, he is a sitting member of the Shawnee Planning Commission.  What did he do?  He sat on the dais, at the PC meeting on Monday 5/6/19 wearing a "Vote Yes" t-shirt in support of the proposed community center ballot initiative.

This is so wrong.  If he wants to wear that t-shirt outside of city hall fine.  If he wants to wear it while grocery shopping or elbow bending at a local pub that is fine.  But to wear it while performing his duties as a PC member is out of line.    I am calling for either his resignation or his removal by the city council.

Now for those who may doubt that it happened here is a picture of it.  Click to view a larger version.
