JIM-SKAINE-REMOVED

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KWWL) — A frequent speaker and recent mayoral candidate was ejected from Monday night’s city council meeting.

Jim Skaine was unwillingly escorted out of the chambers by authorities after being ruled out of order three times.

Skaine had to be physically removed from the podium by Public Safety Director, Jeff Olson and Assistant Police Chief Craig Berte.

During the meeting Skaine was protesting on a series of issues at the podium. This forced Mayor Jim Brown to call for a 15 minute recess.

When the meeting resumed, Brown explained, “I called a recess to avoid a public spectacle.”
