Valley City Mayor Bob Werkhoven responds to the grievances against him filed by city officials last week. In his column, Musings from the Mayor, Werkhoven calls for more transparency in government. He also states that the way the grievances were handled "smacks of petty politics."

"And I'll admit I'm no good at that," he said.

Werkhoven says that he should have found out about the toy gun incident from City Administrator David Schelkoph, not from a distraught citizen, six days after.
