Politics, even on the local level, can be a rough experience.
Crump Mayor Phyllis James and Alderman Judy Hollin, who also serves as the vice mayor, are learning that first-hand lately.
The atmosphere at Crump City Hall is tense following the resignation of former Crump chief of police Tracey Grisham in December, subsequent layoffs and a significant overall cutback in city employee benefits.
Citing inadequate bookkeeping, the vice mayor has taken to spending numerous hours at City Hall, working to revamp the records process.
In turn, Hollin has been accused in the community of trying to undermine longtime City Recorder Pam Hardy, who was stripped of her title of city administrator.
Hollin, who is currently unemployed, hotly denies any intention of trying to gain a paying position at the city, and says she is simply using her bookkeeping experience to help Crump get better control of its finances.
Amidst whispers that city offices might have been equipped with secret listening devices, some employees fear for their jobs and even worry that Crump might unincorporate.
At a city planning meeting last week, James appeared both angry and close to tears.
“It seems like the harder you work, the more you get kicked down,” she said, tossing a handful of what was described as “hate mail” directed to the mayor and Hollin on the table.“We do this job for free.”
James in particular has been the target of anonymous Internet bloggers.
“These people, they’re not really worth being concerned about if they won’t post their names,” Alderman Glen Spencer counseled.
But James indicated she intends to defend her reputation and is contacting an attorney. The Topix website will “give me the names of the people doing this,” she said.

paperman, can you find out why Ms. Hollin is unemployed. I mean if she has such great bookkeeping skills, why can she not find a job. Don't tell me because of the economy either, there are adds in the newspapers everyday wanting bookkeepers. Also, why was she laid off if she's such a great bookkeeper?

Does anybody remember when you sign-up on here that when it asks for your email addy it clearly states this info. will NEVER be given out & if it was proven that they (topix)did give email addy or personal info. out then they would be liable for breaching advertised privacy !
& It would have to be a life/death issue for the FBI to hack anybodys IP addresses.
and I personally don't see the FBI deeming a tattle tail issue as worth their time.

I think considering that mess that she fell into as mayor, that she hasnt had much to work with and considering the people employed by the city that keeps fighting her every step of the way and all the others that just dont care, I think she has survived it pretty well. It could be alot worse and we could have Obama as mayor. Phyllis just keep your chin up and hopefull your days in Hell will be over soon. I would want you in my corner anytime fighting for me.

With the Leaders in Charge at Crump now, I just bet you wish everyday that Mayor James was still there. The mayor today is just a mess, then people wonder why Crump is crumbling around them.
