Indian Trail to mayor: Shut it

Posted By on Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 11:34 AM

Apparently, the small-town mayor misheard the old adage about honey versus vinegar.

Indian Trail's Town Council voted to prohibit Mayor John Quinn from talking to town employees. Quinn is not to enter work areas at Town Hall without first getting approval from the town manager.

Councilmember Dan Schallenkamp accuses the mayor of harassing people when he doesn't get his way at Town Hall.

"If you disagree with him, you may be branded by him as a liar," Schallenkamp said. "I've personally experienced that."

Quinn calls himself a watchdog, trying to reform government waste.

"My positions have rubbed some people the wrong way," said Quinn.

"The understatement of year, yes," responded Schallenkamp.
