The Drama in West Bend Continues

Link to April 22 GM Today article, "Four tossed off West Bend Library Board".

Excerpt: The West Bend Common Council, upset over the handling of a citizen call to restrict sexually-explicit books in the listing recommended for teen-age readers, rejected reappointing four members of the city’s Library Board Tuesday night.

"They’re all good people," said Alderman Terry Vrana, who voted against the four reappointments. "I disagree with them."

He said the appointees were not serving the interests of the community "with their ideology."

Vrana said he wanted people on the Library Board "who think and use a little common sense. I’m concerned about the morality of this city."

Note that in this article, the items in question aren't so-called sexually-explicit books.

The 5-3 vote comes as no surprise to those following West Bend local politics.
