Was the budget director and city manager set up and took the bait, will the public ever know?

Was the City Manager offered to resign or be fired before he resigned? Will there now be a full State Audit of all City Departments at once called for? Will the Mayor, Davis, Otie and Minor call EF out of retirement?

Had RM if he wants that job better get busy see that the records and papers are secure for will there be a full State Audit of all City Departments required and called for before another City Manager is hired into what some might see as such a mess?

15 days? can lots happen in 15 days and nights?
leave the mayor alone

Everyone that was involved in the raise scandle is now gone or will be by the 15th. As far as securing the files, I was told be a city employee that minor already has copies of the charts, e-mails, and forms that he was going to use against them if he had to. If you don't believe it ask any of the people that work at city hall and see what they tell you. Have been told he did give copies to all the councilmen two weeks ago, as well as, the lawyers, mayor and auditors from columbia and that is the main reason it took so long before these people chose to step down. Looks like he had to make sure he had everything covered and it looks like he did. As far as the mayor resigning, that is justt plain stupid, she didn't do anything wrong and she was not involved in giving out these raises and didn't even know about it.

Was the raise scandel just part of the much bigger problems such as nepotism, hiring practices, postings of all public jobs, have there been contracts changed, surplus or scrap sales without public notice or proper bids, sales to insiders? What else was about to come out, will that or will those involved expect it to just go away with the City Manager Resigning? Will there be a call for a full City Department State Audit?
Should the Mayor have known for is that not her job to know and keep the City Council well informed, will the Mayor soon resign?

Get real how many of the people that still work at city hall or for the city know more than they are saying or would tell if asked and how many more sons, daughters or any real close family members have still got jobs or major raises remain with the city is that not called Nepotism?
Will all those raises be taken back and all family nepotism employees now resignor or be let go?
If there were 2 sets of books like some said was being keep did Minor get both sets of books?
Did does the Mayor know and will she soon be resigning or involved?

Do you think it might be a crime if it was any place but the City of Lewisburg who is the Mayor and on the City Council, Department Managers or certain employees but can some get by with most anything others might would be put in the jail for who knows?
Just by offering to retire or resign does the Mayor and City Council think everything will be just fine now without a full City State Audit of all City Department books, who would take the job of city manager without a complete outside Audit being done, all if any nepotism problems exposed, solved and corrected?
Are there more scandals mismanagements in other City Departments just waiting to be uncovered, exposed will there soon be more costs over runs, over budgets or shortages reported in other city departments?

Need to have the T.B.I. conduct an investigation and audit the finances of the city. Was there a criminal act committed? Did someone violate their oath of office? Do we need to prosecute certain people?

On an off Topix memory, my daddy had a State job and some employees took off early on Fridays to go to their family camp. None were fired! ZERO were fired! Getting paid to be at work and those you kiss my butt I kiss your butt personalities got away with it. I don't live like that. PARENTS BETTER WATCH WHAT THEY ARE TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN.
A childs personality is pretty much set by age 5 and yes you are off topic again :( Shame on you. Mae if your going to post on threads please keep your posts to the topic at hand. If you want to go off topic, start a new thread please.

do you people not understand???it was the council
that uncovered what was going on...the mayor was contacted and she did as the council asked and went to the treasure and city manager and confronted them on what was found and let them know she was asked by the council to resign or be fired....yes...they resigned and now trying to say it was other reasons for resigning...because they are not wanting every one know what took place...
it should be turned over and let it be an investigation.....and if any wrong was done then so be it....if they have to wear the orange shirts and black and white pants that will be what it is..hell they may look good in them...yes,robin minor has all the evidence and he should turn them over and let all the truth out and then every one will know the truth and see the mayor done the right thing as asked from the council.....
every one needs to call council minor and ask him to do the right thing and have it all investigated...then it may bring an end to it all...ROBIN MINOR DO THE RIGHT THING....PLEASE CITIZENS OF LEWISBURG GIVE COUNCIL MINOR A CALL AND ASK HIM TO DO THE RIGHT THING....THANK YOU....

Would you not think the State of Tennessee, TBI and the Attorney General would get involved to investigate after just hearing, watching, reading the news reports of the problems Lewisburg City governemnt is has, Audit those books and see if any laws were, are being broken, protecting the public taxpayer's interest without even being called or asked into investigate?

Would you not think the local police and Sheriff both also would be investigating or call the TBI and Attorney General?
Was the one Budget Directer they fired, keep on the city payroll for the past 2 or 3 months and used to train the new Budget director? Does that make the public wonder what kind of training the now New Budget Director has gotten got?
What kind of shape is the Lewisburg City Books really in? Why did the City Council and Mayor not know what was goings on before now?

Will there be other City Departments found to be over budgets, fund shortages, more nepotisum and scandles to come?

How much has been cover up?

Was the Mayor sent or did she go on her own to warn those involved that Minor was not going to back down and they had better resign to keep down a full investigation?

Are they going to allow till April 15 for the city manager to continue working as city manager?
Why he was not terminated at once for what if in that position with the keys to the city could records and papers evidence be disposed of, distroyed or changed?

As I have been told, Minor did turn all the evidence over to the Mayor, all four City Councilmen, the City Attorney, the CPA's from Columbia, and to the State Lawyer for the City of Lewisburg. If all these people have the evidence I believe Councilman Minor has done his job. The people responsible for the raises are NO LONGER WORKING FOR THE CITY. I would think it is in the hands of the lawyers and auditors now if they chose to take action. I believe what was done with the raises probably was not criminal because none of the people that gave the raises got any money themselves. It was underhanded and unapproved to the knowledge of the council and that makes it unethical at best. Leave the mayor and minor alone. They did their job and without them c.e. & d.o. would still be in office and no one would have found out about these raises.

Does the DA not weigh in here.TBI must be called in by Chief or Sheriff ,is that not right?It needs to be put before the taxpayers to see eeryone's role.
MR.MINOR, please do the right thing for the taxpayers.
There was no problem in moving ahead in COrnersville with the scandal.
Might as well get this can of worms all out too. Done and over and move on.
It has cost the city manager his job,others may need to do some soul searching too.
Maybe it will all come to a new day for LEWISBURG.

The gauntlets are never removed. The sly three will be urged to follow the vain. All will be shown to the denying crowd. Many will weep but great good will come of drizzle days.

I am defending the mayor...as I said the mayor did as the council asked of her...and she did let the ones involved know how she felt and that they did wrong...I praise the mayor and that is what I am trying to get the people to see...the mayor did the right thing....
