Brent Greer, county mayor by election.
Sam Tharpe, city mayor, part time position, no real authority but lots of assumed authority. City Manager is the boss of the city.

City mayor is part time. Not really even that. He's the chairman of the city commission. Doesn't maintain an office, just joins the other commissioners. Really he is just a tie vote breaker. Except ours is EVERYTHING free or important.

The City Mayor is an elected commissioner... however, he is elected mayor by the other commissioners every two years when the commissioners are elected. It's a four year term with two commissioners elected and then three elected the next two years. That way there is always 2 or 3 in office at each election.

We have a City Manager form of government. But we also have five commissioner and one is mayor and yes he votes and if necessary he is the tie breaker.

Actually, I would almost prefer an elected Mayor with six elected commissioners... all well paid positions that way it would be worth running for office and might attract a better field of candidate's. The mayor and commissioners would make the laws and approve projects... there would be no city manager.

Brent Greer is the County Mayor and he is elected by the people as are the other county commissioners.

Should be the same for the city. But this would require a public vote and changing the city charter... which might even require approval from the state, but not sure about the state approval.

Just ideas for future thinking.

Sam Tharpe is a racist overbearing bully who has no business holding a position of power over our city nor our children. His idea of leadership is yelling and belittling students. He uses his pull in his part time positioin to advance his career in his full time position. Thank God our children are only under his "leadership" for one year. Maybe we need someone in these positions that puts the people of Paris and children of Grove foremost instead of what they can use to help themselves.

Have you ever had to deal with 400 9th. graders?

And as far as being Mayor... why don't you run for a seat on the city commission? Actually, the Mayor doesn't have that much power... it's the City Manage who runs the city. However, the Mayor does represent the city.

Do you even know Sam Tharpe?
