Dear Brooklyn Park Mayor and Council Members:

On Monday July 24th 2017, you agreed on a motion to accept the resignation agreement of our fire chief Ken Prilliman. His decision to resign was because of various incidents and actions of council member Mark Mata. The mayor and a council member have made a public request for council member Mark Mata to resign from the council effective immediately. As of now, council member Mark Mata has not resigned as suggested by the mayor and the council member.

Council member Mark Mata has brought a “culture of hostility” towards our fire chief and the whole department. He has a personal agenda and has not accepted to resign from his paid-on call position as a fireman even when this is ethically wrong. He has also used his position to bully staff and make frivolous allegations against staff and a council member. The recent resignation of the fire chief will cost the city approximately $120,000 as reported by the media.

Council member Mark Mata has a history of hostilities towards staff especially from the fire department. He was also involved in the resignation of the previous fire chief when he was a council member then. It has also recently come to the attention of the mayor that council member Mark Mata was looking at a way to deny the deputy fire chief from taking over as the new fire chief.

We the residents of Brooklyn Park are very concerned that council member Mark Mata’s behaviors and actions if not stopped, will cause irreparable damage to our city and thus effect our livability.

Council member Mark Mata has proven to be too expensive to let him make decisions or interact on our behalf.

We residents of Brooklyn Park are asking you as our council and mayor to vote and censure council member Mark Mata.
