I do not know, but i do know that if it is true, that this is not the type man that we need in charge of our city. But then again maybe trying to deal with our city board, drove him to it.. With the board meetings that i been to sometimes makes me want to drink

The mayor did not get drunk and have a wreck. He hit the curb in front of the city museum and blew out a tire. This occured on Tuesday, March 3rd at 5:30pm. He was coming down Main St on his way to City Hall to the bimonthly board meeting. I wouldn't blame him for being drunk with all he has to deal with, but he wasn't. Just a careless driving error. If he had been drunk, everyone there, including the news media would have been aware. Just another lie from people who have nothing better to do..

The reason Mayor Strahan called in the State and the FBI was that the town's government and police department were totally corrupt. Crimes were covered up,money was embezzeled, nepotism, drug-dealing and favoritism were rife. Crimes were not prosecuted and the guilty ran the government. Strahan just had the state auditors examine the books (They had to torch open the police chief's safe!) and stopped aldermen from writing checks on their own without approval. He didn't have to tell the FBI to go after specific individuals; their investigations and info from the sheriff's and narcotics forces direceted the investigators to those who had been getting off scott free. If you feel your favorites were targeted, I suggest you find some idols that arn't corrupt. So far we have a new police chief that has an excellent reputation that the alderman didn't want(Wonder why?)and the old cops that did nothing about crime and drugs have moved on up the road. Unfortunately it looks as though the reform vote will be divided in this election allowing the old corruption back into power.

Larry Strahan was drunk. Thankfully, he has the new chief in his pocket and can get away with committing a crime. It takes more than careless driving to ride on the curb and flatten two tires. How ironic? A drunken mayor is going to Jackson to sign for a DUI grant. I guess he's all for it since he know who to call to get out of being charged with a DUI himself.

dajackattack, why don't you come out publicly and accuse the mayor of being drunk? I can tell you why...because you know it's a lie. Our town is very small and he lives on Main Street, so it would be difficult to conceal the drunkenness you are referring to. Also, he went straight to the Board Meeting...you were there and so was the media. You and your very tiny group of negative citizens can find no attack except LIES. All you can do is hide behind the anonomity of the internet or whine to the NAACP. You are the problem in our city. Your lame criticism of the mayor is proof that you can find no real complaint against him. He is doing an excellent job and will be re-elected. So, Jonathan, why don't you start looking for another low income apartment in, say, Alaska or somewhere else far away.

Now we are calling for a stop to the mud slinging; it is bringing the city of Lumberton down. The City of Lumberton has been going down hill since Otis took office as mayor.(Some of you might not be old enough to remember The Andy Griffith Show so I’ll call the mayor by his government name-Larry.) Just as Shelly and o yeah (aka Liz) stated, this madness needs to stop, but why are we concerned now? This has been going on for such a long time. For the past three years, there have been posts about the board embezzling money from the city and various other crimes. If that were true wouldn’t there be enough evidence to convict them of such crimes, especially since the city has been audited four times since they took office. People like to post on these websites because it gives them the freedom to say what they want because they can hide behind a screen name; they can smile in your face, and then tear you down over the internet. We all know that Jack has been using the screen name “daknowledge” because he found out that Jonathan was posting under the screen name “the knowledge” and he hoped people wouldn’t pay enough attention to know the difference and think that his posts were coming from Jonathan. Just like we know Nell has been posting under the screen name “educator4life” to make people think that the post were being made by Miriam. The only thing these posts have proven is that Lumberton is a city of cowards. I have no problem with ending the post I make on line, but all parties must make an effort to bring this mess to an end. The city has a mayor that is on the news three or more times a week, tearing down this city. None of the mayor’s in surrounding cities have ever gotten on television and berated their city. There have been some serious issues of division in the City of Hattiesburg, but their mayor did not use the news to degrade the other elected officials. Larry is governing the same way he campaigned. He uses dirty politics to get what he wants. While campaigning, he was telling everyone that Jonathan was under indictment and that he was going to be arrested, and that Maurice was concealing Jonathan’s criminal record. Sadly, his tactics worked. He and the bedbug he calls a wife, are getting uncomfortable because he don’t want to reap the seeds of discord that he has sown. TTYL; bitches!

You might need to seek some guidance, you seem to be a very angry, misguided person. You need Jesus.

Nothing but lies and more lies. You are so far off on your presumptions. Under other circumstances, I would find that funny. You have surpassed even my low opinion of you. I don't have the stomach for this type of slander. You started it, You can have it. I will stand behind the truth. It seems you have begun to believe your own lies. There in lies the problem. Really sad, really sad.
