For the record, cause some of you are probably wondering: I did not write them nor do I know who wrote or sent these letters to the DAR.
Two letters from an anonymous person have been sent to the Daily American Republic this week requesting the paper investigate and inform their readers of City Council’s soon-to-be-selection of engineering company for the first project by the Poplar Bluff TDD (a city corporation handling and funding the development of area transportation projects using a 1% sales tax).
According to each of the letters, Carbon copies were also forwarded to Doug Libla, Todd Richardson, PB Mayor and all city council members, Ed Strefel, and Steve Halter. The second letter also included the SEMO Times.
SEMO.net obtained copies of each of the letters and have posted & linked them below for your viewing.
After graduating from Mizzou with Computer and Electrical Engineering degrees in 1985, Brian Becker spent a decade singing Christian Rock and being a labeled artist with Benson Music Group of Nashville. In 1995, he and several investors started the area's first Internet Service called PBMO.net and by 2000 the company was serviing Internet access in over 50 communities throughout Southeast Missouri as SEMO.net. In July 2014, Becker again made a major pivot and became Publisher of the SEMO TIMES: a weekly print and daily online news and entertainment source for the region.
