If protection service was a priority this would be true. Unfortunately that's a facade, if something goes wrong he will make excuses and stare at the floor, I've seen it. He will grow the Government, and make a building his legacy. Not necessarily a bad guy, but make no mistake, the general public comes secondary to the Department. Not the best choice, but not the worst, he's been a good front man for a notoriously shady Department. This not an opinion.

You are right it will not, Aguirre should be under the jail for the crimes he's helped covered up, but Tupelo has a history of coverups that promote, now doesn't it?

Record Breaking

Highest turnover, labor department investigation costing another $1million in wages, mold ingested and causing health hazards for detectives due to leak in office roof. record setting crimes and murder rate, youngest patrolmen in history of department due to high turnover rate, and the highest cost of legal representation due to lawsuits and court cases even though the city has an in house full time attorney. What will the next 5 years be like with Aguirre accumulating his retirement?

Tupeloís political chronyism is running off the middle class, and destroying the quality of life for those who stay.
Maybe we should move to Saltillo, retire off the taxpayers, and buy a new Harley.

Downtown main street needs more alcohol to be sold by the city wanting s few shoppers downtown Tupelo. The association downtown has failed to revive the dead downtown after 27 years of wasting millions of dollars a three block area downtown. Downtown main street is drunk as a bicycle. The voters will take care of the problem with Nettie and Jason and their drinking habits.
Who Cares

The chief lives in Saltillo and could care less that his boss and his mayor in charge of vice Nettie does in their to go cups downtown main street. The alcohol district overlays the church district downtown on main street. The mayor, his Nettie and the main street director make alcoholics welcome to downtown main street. The city issues to go cups for the alcohol. The mayor decided that the city could make more money selling alcohol than issuing citations to all the public drunks downtown on main street. After getting drunk down on main how do you find your car to drive home intoxicated without killing someone with your full Tupelo issued to go cup? The city of Tupelo encourages driving with a to go cup. Who will enforce the stupid codes about the to go cups? NO ONE. It is all bull$hit coming from the mayor and his boss the main street director of alcohol sales.

The daily journal is researching the names of the next mayor and chief and developmental services director. Getting caught is bad for business and Danny Hugh Freeze will testify to that.
Police Cups

The police will ok the drinking of alcohol while driving if the container is a main street issued to go cup. The main street staff will be responsible for sweeping up the empty cups in their reserved parking spaces near the directors office. Hiccup.

Shelton will resign and a special election will clean out city hall and downtown main street and the chief of police job and who knows how many friends of the mayor are on the payroll but do nothing. Sweeping change is coming to Tupelo.
Oversight Committee

Tupelo, MS

#17 Wednesday Apr 18
The police chief now has 12 bosses plus his friend the mayor on his oversight committee. The police department now caters free meals for the committee and serves alcohol in to go cups. Tupelo is a festival town with fake Elvis's riding in the taxpayer funded golf carts and mocking a dyed black side burned hair do as a hunka hunka drug addict hound dog blue swede shoes with jump suits for everyone,

The mayor has appointed another boss for his chief of police. The daily Tupelo paper is quick to publish their photograph of another boss for the chief of police. The last thing that Tupelo does is enforce the law. How many millions of dollars in fines and parking tickets are on the books in Tupelo and never paid? The city does not attempt to collect fines and fees knowing well that the entitled are the majority in Tupelo and never pay fines and never feed their own children. The Tupelo corporations and business deduct the cost of feeding the unplanned and unwanted children from the workers pay checks every payday and the daily paper publish the amount from each company. Tupelo is a socialistic and communistic little town.
Retirement Pay

Tupelo, MS

Bart has got his 4 highest paid years in his retirement calculation but owes Jason Shelton too much of the increase monthly to retire and go home. The new Tupelo mayor will be an adult and will be responsible for managing the city and will close down all the committees that are blamed for the failures in Tupelo. The redevelopment committee has done nothing but pay a downtown Mabus for signs and rebranding and the police oversight committee has done nothing but eat the free food and the downtown main street is now the biggest buyer of alcohol in Tupelo and funded by the taxpayers for the benefit of a the real estate owned by the mayors past and present downtown and the airport is now run by a owner out of the Nashville area and Elvis owns Fairpark. Dontyouknow.

The crime rate in Tupelo has risen every year Aguirre has been Chief, but the statistics donít show it because his new software program doesnít work. Yea right!
As we all expected the Chief was promoted to gain the highest retirement pay and promoted for protecting the town not its people.
He should be forced to live in Tupeloís crime ridden town and do it without a badge.
The Mayor will be lucky no one steals the silver spoon out of his mouth with his chiice of Chief.
