Selah mayor to man at meeting, 'Get a job'

SELAH, Wash. (AP) -- Selah Mayor Bob Jones says he's not politically correct and has no regrets about telling a man at a council meeting to get a job and a haircut.

KIMA reports (http://is.gd/Gw7xRh ) Jones had Wayne Patterson escorted from last week's meeting after Patterson was not allowed to speak because he does not live within city limits.

Patterson says he attends Selah council meetings anyway because he doesn't agree with the mayor's conservative politics.

On Patterson's way out, the mayor told him, "Go get a job and a haircut and come back and see me when you do."
