Do you think Shawnee taxpayer dollars should be used to pay for the city's first-ever public information officer?

"Yes, a professional communicator is essential to provide information about city services as well as to solicit important feedback from Shawnee residents."

“Public Information Officer? Let’s call it like it is – 'Publicity Agent,' and he ain’t ever going to tell you anything bad about the city."

"Heck no. With a city manager, a deputy city manager and an assistant to the city manager, they should be able to handle it. Use the money to bring back our July 4th celebration."

Technology has made "public information officers" a bit outdated. Information about city services can be consolidated on a website, and "important feedback from Shawnee residents" can be solicited on the same website. Presumably, the City of Shawnee still maintains phone numbers that can be called by residents unable to access or use the technology.

What no branch of government needs is one more forked tongue to consolidate lies.
