well, well, well.... looks like trouble is right around the corner... miss high and mighty Betsy Gregson is doing what the mayor said she is not allowed to do AND the council is letting her. Don't you think it's about time that the citizens of Huntington DO SOMETHING about all this??? I have to agree with My Name Is... I now wonder what else she does without "authority". And wazzzzup... did you find out who got fired?? I heard that there is a new secretary working there now... which one left???

Find out why Besty is being allowed to fire people and hire people because I heard that the lady who is now a secretary is her best friend (don't know why or how anyone could be friends with her but anyway) and that the lady is on SS and can only make so much a year without affecting her government check. Does that mean that we have more under-the-table business happening???
So what't going on Monday at 5:30 at city hall??? another of those special meetings they don't like to let anyone know about???

If the lady is on ss that tells me she is probably a mature lady, and will make a good secretary. Why does everything have to be :under the table: I can understand affairs between chief and secretary being under the table!

Apple Computer you must not know Betsy Gregson very well because she is a very coniving, self centered,obnoxious,rude,and so called christian I have ever seen!!!!I know we are not supposed to judge but her actions speak VERY loud! She definately calls the shots at city hall and makes it look like the so called city manager does it all. He doesn't have enough common sense to be able to run a city the way it should be! It's my opinion the state should come in a do an investigation. You called the one secretary a hooch...well she did not have an affair by herself. And by the way....did you witness the so called affair? NO ONE knows the true facts but God, Sifford and the secretary!

apple computer, sounds like you do not know betsy, I agree with happy heifer's description of her and she is "a mature" person (I won't call her a lady, she has not earned it) and see how she acts. and it seems like everything is under the table because so much is being hid!! why else does the city council bow down to the city manager and secretary??? and if they don't have anything to hide why are the calling the city attorney whenever any little thing is attempted to be brought to the public's attention?? It is things that the citizens deserve and have a right to know, yet the city upper management are trying to keep it all hidden.... what is wrong with that picture???

I haven't said one word bout Betsy, just mentioned that if a new secretary is on SS, then she must be mature and would probably make a good secretary. I notice you have said two things that make me think you have inside knowledge of the city workings: You brought the "under the table" into the forum, and you also said you heard the girl who had the ties to the chief was not there. You are right- the citizens need to know everything about their city government.

I know you did not say a thing about Betsy, you made reference to maturity makig for a good secretary. I know Betsy enough to know what kind of person she really is - and maturity has not improved her at all. "Under the table" is a well known expression,(I am using it in reference to shady dealings), and if you ask around the city you will hear many people say that the girl who had the ties to the chief was not there - that is how I got that information. Just talking to a few people I have found out a wealth of information, but I will have to put in requests for different records to get the facts on the information I've been given.

I think Nothing But the Truth is the one with the city ties.... already knew about a meeting that is happening this evening - if I had inside ties I would have known about it, but I didn't.

Nothing but the truth, you need to find the truth to spread it... I have NEVER worked at city hall so that means you don't know the truth about who I am... which is ok, I find it humorous that your ignorance shines so well :).... as far as the meeting being posted at the post offce, I don't have my mail delivered there so I am not in the habit of going there, which means I would not see the posting. So, since you know so much, go to the meeting and share your version of their story with us when you get back online.

Bump ******
I ran a Topix "Huntington Texas" Search and found this tittilating thread that quotes BM as saying BG does not have authority to fire anyone.
