The mayor of Parkin Arkansas is a sorry piece of s*it. He fires good officer just cause they know right from wrong and refuse to play his money making game. He is a crook and need to be put under the jail. The Police Dept. has a New Chief
I hope he will be able to do his job to the letter of the law, which is what the town needs.
just wondering

Disgruntle Cop tell us something elese that we dont already know, seems like when we get a officer that we can trust and depend on the next thing you know that officer seems to be gone for one reason or another.Hang in their Chief Davidson your gonna need it.

Just Wondering: Do you know why you cant keep good cops? CAUSE OF THE MAYOR!!! He wants the cops on Hwy 64 writing tickets so he can get more money for the city and in turn take the money and put it in his own pocket, and the good officers know this and refuse to be caught up in it. I know from personal expearance that this is what the mayor does. Thats why good officers leave. Chief Davidson has his work cut out for him and I hope things can change for the better, so the people of Parkin can win for a change.

Disgruntle Cop you are right again the mayor wants all of the officers to work 64 hwy so that the money stays in town and his pocket,and the officers don`t want tangled up in this trap that`s exactly why parkin has the speed trap name.If and I say if the mayor would let the Cheif do his job it want be like that anymore!But the Cheif can only do what the mayor will allow him to do and you know that. Parkin deserves a good Cheif and we have one now so MAYOR BACH OFF AND LEAVE THE CHEIF ALONE!!

I think alot of the people that voted for patterson are sorry they did now. hopefully these people will wake up when election time comes around and get him out. he has done enough damage to our town. I have lived here for 46 years and the town has hit rock bottom we need him out of office.. Idont know how much more the town can take being robbed of its money.

Is there anyone compotent enough to run for mayor against Patterson?

I think Floyd Waymire would do a good job, I havent dealt with him in years, but always thought he was a good guy. Whether or not he is willing to do it is the question.

Eddie Shaw is another good candidate although a bit older, but he is well known by all and could quite possibly bring the town together.

Whomever is elected should address the overall poor shape the town is in.

It wont be long and all the buildings downtown will need to be condemned. There are also quite a few burned-out or otherwise delapidated houses throughout the town.

You'd figure the city council could force owners to clean them up or the city could condemn them and clean them up and then sieze the property in lieu of a lien against the deed. Most owners are from out of town and seem to have no interest in some of the buildings.

I understand demolition & clean up takes money, but I'd bet there are some folks that would demo some places ust to get old fixtures, copper, doors, wood, etc.

I'm sure some labor could be done by work-release inmates - final clean up and lot mowing - to save some money.

----------

As far as owing the Feds a chunk of money, maybe Parkn should ust surrender their charter as a first-class city and throw in the towel. Defer al law enforcement to the Cross County SO.

Mr. Shaw is up in his years but i'm sure he would appreciate you thinging of him. I would be afraid Waymire would be a push over for people b/c of his store but I still would possibly consider him depending on candidates. Mrs. Lee seems to be someone i like. Her opions are down to hearth common sense she sees the problems from the right perspective. Letting the state take over maybe the best if there is no change! Of course I wish the state would have set up the park differntly but it is the nicest thing we have.

I dont mean any disrespect but instead of trying to find the right person to run...you run.You sound like you have some good ideas there so why not?The problem is we do not stand together and try we want things to change but we want someone else to make it happen.The mayor may not be doing things the way we would and he may be a little crooked,but it may be that he does not know how to run the city,but at least he is trying in his own way to help parkin.the worse problem we have is we cannot get over the race thing.whites want whites to win blacks want blacks to win and we all lose in the long run because we did not work together and stand as one to help our little cities,we let the drug pushers,peddlers and drug heads win because deep inside and only each of us knows what go on in our own head,still have racial issues.Sir or mamdam i do not know you but we all need to start doing our part for our cities or you see what happens.

Come on now SHIRLEY and get a f'ing clue!!

Patterson is a crook. Pretty much everyone in city hall are his cronies and are crooked as well.

Parkin is bankrupt fiscally and politically and is desperately in need of new leadership.
