"The city council never gives any answers. I think the decision is wrong. Our mayor should be DeDe. She's here to help us and they are here to defeat us," said Tanya Isham, another Winona resident at the meeting.
Stroud spoke out Wednesday about confrontations in city hall that led to her resignation earlier this week.
Stroud said the trouble in Winona started shortly after coming into office a few months ago. She claims confrontations with city employees and actions by the city council made her job irrelevant
"There are a lot of issues going on and the wrong people are in charge," Stroud said.
Stroud says she was elected to bring change to a city with problems, but claims the city council had other plans.
"Instead, the council put all day-to-day authority on to the chief of police, Bryan Richards," Stroud said, "I knew it was going to be hard, I knew there were a lot of issues I was going to have to focus on, but I never expected the fight, the day-to-day battle inside the city hall."
Stroud says the city council has stripped power away from her since becoming mayor.
Mayor Pro Tem Earl Brown says he will fill in as Winona's mayor until a new mayor is elected.
