Yes it's real sad. And I wonder how the City Clerk feels about this matter. After all she is why the Police Department was broke. It seems none of the money was getting where it was suppose to get.

Hobson City suffers from lack of leadership. They have had some of the worst Mayor's and poor city officials I have ever seen. The bottom line, the community is in ruins. I say lets fire everyone of them especially the City Clerk who is also a crook and take back our community.
Most of the leadership in Hobson City are not educated. Look at Oxford and other community's in the surrounding area they are leaving Hobson City behind. I would love to see Oxford come in and take over Hobson City that might save it. Woods is an uneducated idiot.
