The following opinion was written and submitted by former Jasper City Councilwoman Hazel Johnson:

I don't know how many people read the opinion page but more citizens of Jasper should pay attention to those that have served as a Council member, fought the fight for what is fair and honest and failed. I agree with Felix Bundt who shared his thoughts on the duties and commitment as a Council member. You cannot be dedicated to your position you are sworn into by attending six meetings out of the year. It is my opinion that no member of City Council should be related.
