It seems like the CC Town Council got a bit fed up with certain people always griping about the job they are doing. I know several of the council members and have talked in depth to 3 of them about certain people who follow them around, cruise by their homes with cameras flashing, come to council meetings and challenge nearly every decision they make. It seem that last month one of them got up, gave some false information on the waterline, then stood there,pointed her finger and said she was "ashemed of you all". Well, I agree the person has a right to disagree with decisions being made, but I disagree with making it a personal issue as she appearently did. I think rather than belittle people trying to make CC better, you offer your ideas, ask to join committees, or try to be a part of the solution not just another gripe*SS.
Back to what happened, as I hear it. The Vice Mayor called out the gripe*ass. Asked what she'd EVER done in Chase City to try and make it better. Told her that for nine years she, VM, had sat on committees, joined the Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce, been the employer of part time workers to assist in her business venture, been a member of several charity groups, and has been on the council for 9 years. She has tried her best to do what she felt was in the interest of this town. She said she knew some things didn't make all people happy but councils votes are not always going to make everybody happy, but that they try to make most people happy. Long story short. As Dale Earnhardt used to say.....lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way! Finally, the VM said as I understand it, "I've heard you say on more than one occassion you were going to move out of Chase City. I just want to know when you are going to start packing"! After the VM(Vice Mayor) finished a few more council people weighed in some as well.
I know the person the VM was talking to and about. Always seems bitter, abusive and unhappy. Maybe this will open her eyes to how she's seen and make her less of the adjectives I used to describe her. I hope so. In the mean time. Hooray for the TC for finally standing up.
