We've started a trend: Pekin man tried to shame mayor

Pekinite* Randy Price is trying the send a message to Pekin's mayor::

"The old City Hall is telling (Mayor Lyn Howard) that we want him out," said Price, who is vice president of Enviro-Safe Refrigerants Inc., 400 Margaret St. The building was the home of City Hall from 1951 to 2002. "Pekin has taken a black eye and everyone is fed up."

The signs appeared in front of the business Wednesday and were becoming a hit by Thursday.

With messages such as "We Accept City Credit Cards," "Mr. Howard, Do the right thing for our city - resign," and "Mr. Mayor, Shame on You," the signs have been catching people's attention.

* I don't usually blog about Pekin, but until someone steps forward to be Pekin Pundit, I'll try to pick up the slack, occasionally.

And besides, it's always fun to see Pekin following the lead of Peoria.
