The Letter to the Editor by Laura Ferguson on Jan. 20 is the most self-serving communication I have ever read.

It is apparent that this councilmember should not be sitting on the City Council, as she is the most divisive member to have ever been elected. Just watching the council meetings is painful when Ferguson rarely agrees with the majority and votes, 4-1, on many reasonable topics.

While I am not a lawyer and do not purport to know all the ins and outs of her City Council censure, the city certainly needed legal advice during this process.

Instead of writing about all the many issues facing this city, Ferguson seems very self-centered and only caring about her own reputation.

I can hardly wait for the City Council election this November.
