A conflict for Dixon’s mayor

Published: Saturday, July 20, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

Following the Rita Crundwell mess, many people asked Jim Burke to step down from his position of mayor. This has not happened, and never will as long as he gets commissions selling properties to businesses who want to locate in Dixon.

I think Jim Burke being mayor and owning Burke Realty is a conflict of interest.
