The city of Ludington’s most vocal opponent has sent a complaint to city manager John Shay. Tom Rotta is cancelling a planned rally on September 29th at the Stearns Park beach. Rotta claims that he submitted a written request on August 12th to hold a camp fire event in September. He further asserts that it was left off the commission meeting agenda last week. The "Rotta for Third Ward Councilor Committee" set the deadline of August 30th for a meeting with the city and no action was taken to allow the bon fire to occur. Rotta sent the letter late last night withdrawing the request to hold the bonfire. Rotta has made numerous F-O-I-A requests and has engaged the city in several lawsuits. Councilor Les Johnson spoke out against him at last week’s council meeting. Rotta is challenging Johnson for his seat on the council in the upcoming general election.
