Sounds to me like Amory has a good Chief who doesn't kiss the boards butt. Normally when you have a chief who the people elect he can do the job without interference from the mayor and board. That means the board can't pressure the department to get their "good ol boys" out of Dui's and such, sounds to me like mayor Boozer and the board want to be control freak's so they can do illegal acts suck as interfere with they daily operations of the police department. How can a towns mayor refuse on the live news to acknowledge the voters option. i dont wanna talk about that was his answer. someone will be watching you Mayor Boozer and board. The campaign to UNelect the Mayor has been started today. You and your croneys will not control Amory law enforcement
