Sometimes names can be deceptive. This appears to be one of those times.
It appears that there are people in Marshall still trying to derail the animal shelter. I recently learned that there is a “PETITION TO PLACE THE MARSHALL ANIMAL SHELTER AND INFRASTRUCTURE ON THE NOVEMBER 2018 BALLOT” being circulated by a group ironically calling itself Citizens for a Better Marshall.
I don’t know who is pushing the petition. Based on the documents I have, the only two names are “Eric J Neal” and “Leo Morris”.
The only Eric J Neal I know is a realtor and the ex-city commissioner that was defeated in his run for a second term for the city commission in 2017.
The Leo Morris I know ran for the city commission in 2017 and was defeated.
I have said that those trying to delay the animal shelter are trying to “Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory”. Just a guess but maybe these two gentlemen are trying to pull off another defeat.
