Not a smart career move to say the least …
Let this be a lesson to all those teenagers that think there are no consequences to the risqué pictures that put up on MySpace. Just ask former Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist. The key word in that sentence was “former”. Carmen Kontur-Gronquist recently came under fire when she posted pictures of herself in her underwear on a fire truck on her MySpace web page. Needless to say that caused quite a response from her constituents. In a recall vote, Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist lost her job 142–139.
According to the person who spearheaded the recall drive, Ron Miller, the vote was 142 in favor and 139 against the recall of Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist.
She came under fire after she posted photos of herself posed in lingerie on a fire truck on her MySpace page.
She told KATU News Tuesday that she had no regrets about posting the photo online, and she seemed to harbor no hard feelings about the recall.
“My reaction is that the democratic process took place, and that is a good process that we have in the United States, and it’s fair,” she said.
There are 366 registered voters in Arlington. Dozens of them held meetings and organized after the photo was publicized, and many participated in Monday night’s recall vote.
But the voters weren’t really just angry about the picture, some said.
