The Mayor is making a fool of the Overland residents. She is using her position to take over the business of the city. Her lies and personality is not what the people of Overland deserve or want. Overland, Missouri has been a quiet, peaceful, beautiful place for many years. Now because of one person the rest of the state is laughing at the community. If the Mayor had the town of Overland at heart and truly cared about the city and it's residents she would step down and stop the embarrassment she is causing.

Seems to me the four opposing Councilmen and the Attorney are creating the Circus that the rest of the area are laughing about. Anyone who watches it on TV can see she can hardly get a word out of her mouth without someone interrupting or criticizing. I have to question who is control ing the attorney and the four Councilmen who are always disrupting the meeting.

I must urge all that reside in overland to go to the police station and DEMAND an immediate tour of the jail.
It is your right to do so and you should see how your tax dollars are being use in such a horrid manner.
The whole area smells of vomit and feces, the prisoners all scratched and complained of lice
and at the time of my tour I witnessed 14 inmates (both male and female) get stuffed into a single 8x10 feeding cage so that the whole facility could be cleaned with bleach due to an earlier inmate having a contagious open wound skin rash.
I am no frequent visitor of jails, but I must assume that others are nowhere as bad as this place.
The inmates I saw are not hard corp criminals. Most had been incarcerated for simple traffic violations or Failure to appear etc...
All the officers seemed to tout the fact that they had just made the 78th arrest of the year.
73 arrests in the first 19 days of the year.
If they keep this rate up thats 3.5 a day or 1277 a year.
That is a minimum of 13% of overland citizens being place in the gulag.
DEMAND that the jails be clean and sterile and not a health risk to inmates.
DEMAND that they reserve jail housing for those whom are violent offenders and NOT to lock up every citizen whom is a simple none violent offender.
This current practice is a huge waste of taxpayer money and from what I saw in person is not seeing any use of the money we pay.

Mayor Ann Purzner is now going back to court. This time to try to prevent the Recall election from appearing on the April Ballot. For more info visit The Overland Examiner at: http://overlandexaminer.org

Actually, based on my own observations the ones doing the most interrupting (of the Mayor and everyone else) are Councilman Knode an Councilman Owensby.
