The Appeal of Steve Stanton

WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

On Friday the appeal of former Largo City Manager Steve Stanton was ended. And so was his employment with the city of Largo. Although the night ended with the same 5 to 2 vote as on February 27th, many that were present at Stanton's dismissal say that Friday had a different feeling. Brandon Martin reports.

Many said that the tone of Friday night's meeting was lighter and more positive. There were also many more non-Largo residents than at the previous meeting.
