The Douglasville City Council cant make a decision to save their lifes. It appears that Larry Yockey and Mayor Pearson are in this for the money. They appear to be the only two wanting to get more money and be compensated for their time. If you wanted to make money go back to your full time jobs. The Mayor has been unable to make decisions since he took Office and Yockey has been nothing but a shadow of former Mayor Thompson. Douglasville needs help!

Please give us enough examples to support your assertion.

What is your basis for this assertion?

Wanting to be compensated for your time does not equate to "being in it only for the money". Can you substantiate this a bit?

Ah, all this nicely summed up with a "The sky is falling" statement.

Whoever you are, making baseless unsubstantiated claims is just a waste of everyones time and does nothing to prop up your claims. It all comes off as if you are just some ineffective sour-grapes person who couldn't quite make the grade. Now you've got some kind of axe to grind.

You really should work on your writing style if you've got something to say. Empty words aren't getting the job done.

I think the mayor, city council, and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners need to understand that we are all watching them and their actions and thoughts VERY CLOSELY.
The decisions they make will determine whether they gain more of our trust or lose our trust for good-(we are the citizens of Douglasville and Douglas County who you are supposedly representing).

Recently these "leaders" have been appearing to be quite self-serving. Do you leaders not realize that when the grand jury kicks the former mayor to the curb and tells you to pay back your meeting fees that were unlawful, that it is quite an insult for you to be considering publicly to give yourselves a "68 percent raise" etc.

We really are watching what you are doing and saying. At least two of you have a little common sense, since you did know what the job paid when you ran for it.

As for you commissioners, we really are watching how you are handling the "Animal Shelter Crisis" and the people who have been injured over it.

It isn't that we are threatening not to vote for you again, it's that we are watching every single detail of every single move and decision that you as leaders and individuals make. All future decisions that you make will be viewed through the filter of what you are doing right now.

Go ahead, piss off the animal caretakers and animal lovers, Commissioners. Ignore their rants.

Go ahead, mayor and city council, give yourselves big raises after being called out for this very thing.

Once you leaders prove that you are not acting in the best interest of the public but are acting in your own best interest, don't expect the public to support anything else that you come up with. You can do as you please but you will surely have to answer for it down the line.

You better be paying attention. We are.
