BEAVER — A municipal judge has tossed out a disturbing the peace charge lodged against a 57-year-old grandmother ticketed for telling Beaver town trustees they better watch their backs after the close of a lengthy board meeting.
“There's a big uproar here,” said the woman, Linda Fisher, who ran unsuccessfully for a trustee position in 2011. “Nobody in this town likes the way they're conducting business.”
Fisher cited the recent resignation of town Treasurer April Jamison and a residents' petition calling for a state audit as additional evidence of turmoil that has gripped this Oklahoma Panhandle town of about 1,500.
Recalling events that led up to her being ticketed last August, Fisher told The Oklahoman she was frustrated with Mayor Denise Janko and the other four trustees because of their spending practices and because they refused to recognize her to speak at their August board meeting.
