Just fix the streets and the problem goes away. How simple is that? But no, The city administration is like a dog chasing it's tail and biting at the wind until the stupid dog runs smack into a tree and knocks itself cold. What a waste of time and good will. And band-aid patching the streets with gravel will not make the problem go away either. It's got to be done right. Don't have the money? Well then, Resign and let someone else take over. But it's easier to start a race war, civil war, community war or any kind of war than to voluntarily give up POWER.

The new group is getting a good old curb stomping from these 2,I for one am glad that a$$craft and homeboy hole are doing this you guys get them blood sucking leeches out of office as soon as you guys can.
A change is coming real soon,so Hightower you and your water guy just set back and do nothing and watch your jobs be gone , you better start fighting back real soon.
I am just saying , Hightower a$$craft is sewing up the votes in the lower housing area , so set in the office and do nothing and your a$$ is gone you get some help on your side soon.
Hello shit for brains. I have a dilemma. Being the astute MORON that you are, I'm sure you can help me sort it out.
The outside temp today is 99 with a heat factor of 105. Here is my dilemma: Should I jump in my new Expedition, turn on the air, and cruise down south to the casino, or should I jump on my new, fully dressed, FLHRCI Harley Davidson and enjoy a cool breeze?
BTW, Curb stomping you Gallaweiners isn't all that difficult. Most of you don't have the couth to rinse out the sink after you pee in it, bathe after you dismount your sisters, or the brains to walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

Well a statement worth nothing ,a phrase worth nothing , joust at Gallaway worth nothing , I am wondering why you Mr. Hole are always down on almost everyone in G- Town . So you have a bike , so you have many junk cars by your trailer, try to be nice sometimes , you will be judged not by me or anybody on earth but a true higher power .
So I am sure you will blast me but that is great I expect it , I'm sure I spelled some words wrong or left out a word or to so hit me back and let the good times roll.
Quit hiding behind your computer and come out on the front porch Jeff South. You are the coward who tasered a man who was already face down on the ground and cuffed. You're the little piglet who handed out tinted window tickets like they were going out of style. You're the punk who lied to the POST Commission.
Spare me the religious bullshit Jeff South. You ass kissing hypocrite. You're instigating little fat ass has been on Topix bashing a LOT of people. Most of the time your little fat ass hasn't a clue what day of the week it is.
You're the undermining little fat ass who undermined and played both ends up against the middle believing that you were going to become the Police Chief. Your illiterate little fat ass makes the same spelling errors here that you made on those false TIBRS reports you filed.
The good new is I'm not here to run a popularity contest, and if there is going to be ass kissing I'm providing the ass, so I truly don't give a flying fuck who likes me and who doesn't. I've got the balls to hold my own ground.
One of the best things I ever did for Gallaway was get your sorry, illiterate, little roly poly fat ass out of here.

The only way Gallaway will ever be a new town and see a new day is if people wake up and smell the coffee.
Admit it: Watson and his politician crime partner NEVER did anything for the town unless they profited along with it.
Ask yourself a few simple questions: 1. How many of the promises made have actually been kept; 2. How many of the employees hired by Pat Brown and/or Tammie Hightower were actually qualified for the position they were GIVEN; 3. Why is it the Board NEVER exercises any oversight over the City Manager; 4. How much money has the City spent to date defending Dennis Timbes $600,000.00 self-inflicted sexual harassment lawsuit; 5. If it took the City over a year to pave the small area over the bridge on Old Brownsville, how many YEARS will it take to pave the rest of the city; 6. Can any of you remember the GRANT story we were told by Pat Brown and Dennis Timbes? Well! Where is it. That was TWO YEARS AGO.
Well I'm sorry, but it's pretty obvious to me that there aren't three people in this entire City who are qualified to govern it. So why vote in ANOTHER NIMROD.
It is time to circulate a petition: TCA 6-18-108 (b) After the expiration of the four (4) year period and upon the filing of a petition in the same manner as provided for the adoption of chapters 18 through 23 [that is the City Manager Charter], inclusive, of this title, containing the signatures of the same number of registered voters and praying for a surrender of such charter, an election shall be held to determine whether or not the same shall be surrendered.
Until the Gallaway Housing Authority stepped in and FORCED the City into doing something, the City NEVER did the first damn thing about the streets. NEVER!
Watson controlled the black vote (and consequently the election) by installing his wife, the City Recorder, as Executive Director over the HA. When his wife got tired, he installed Linda Tucker who ran it according to his will WITHOUT A BOARD.
That also answers the question regarding the PILOT payments. If the PILOT payments were not made, go ask the City Mayor why his wife never made them, and why HE never asked for them. That is not my personal opinion, that is bona fide FACT that can be supported with public records (if Hightower or Angela can find them).
In what way has any private citizen in this town benefited from
the City Government? You pay the highest rate in the NATION for your gas, you drive on the WORST STREETS IN THE COUNTY, police protection is a popularity contest, you aren't going to get a straight answer to a straight question, and many of you have sewers backing up into your yard.
The County may not do any better, but they sure as hell can't possibly do any worse. How could they?
Again, there aren't three people in this entire City who are qualified to run it. The horrid truth of the matter is that your current Board doesn't have a clue about how this City runs.
The current Board has thrown THOUSANDS of DOLLARS of YOUR money hiding behind MTAS, the TML, and their over dressed pimp of a lawyer strictly for the sake of covering their own ass. And you haven't had enough yet?
Center Point wants out of this farce for a City government, and it won't be that hard to convince those blacks you tried to throw out in the streets that the time has come to tell ALL OF YOU good bye, and good riddance. I'll take my chances with the County.

Come to think of it, how can they justify all this money? Braswell was offered chump change, car taken away, and told he could only have 1 officer and 2 reserves because the city couldn't afford it. So how come Public Works and others are driving PD vehicles, city hall is making new hires, Hogwood was offered over $10,000 more a year, more fulltime officers hired, Tasers bought....I would really like to hear what has changed....

Less people should really know how you are. Are you off your meds again? As a schitrofenic you really should stay on them. Most people don't know you have shit on all who have tried to help you. I hear you got a good settlement from your bogus settlement on your poor back ache from your alleded injury while goofing off at pre cast concrete. So you bought an old truck and a new motor cycle that you call your son. I hear the mayor told you he didn't care about you or your bike good for him how juvenile you are. I thought the mayor was pertty inteligent but after he appointed you to the board I wonder about him. Did you ever repay Dean for the truck he bought you? Did you ever repay Billy for dragging your sorry ass from being homeless living under a bridge? We all know the answer to those questions. You are no friend to anyone in this city but are only out for your self. How much did you get for the plywood you stole from the Gallaway Housing Athourty? Did you pawn the faucets? Do you have the balls to tell the people that if the city losses its charger that no one will sponser the project and that it will go away? You put out a lot of bull shit but you are like a bogus rancher all hat and no cattle, or in your case you have not a house, or a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. Why don't you shut your bogus ass up or leave town most of us are tied of your selfrightious shit. I hope the mayor gets the balls to do the right thing and put you off the housing authority board so someone honest and with a positive attitude can take your place. What happens in the dark will always come to light. You think you are so intellegent and the rest of are so stupid. Most of us own propery and pay taxes, you are a looser with not much hope so you try to tear down anything that is positive. For myself I will pray for your sorry misguidded ass.
Leave town.

Is that the angle you MORONS are trying to sell? That if the City goes under, the Housing Authority goes under with it? You can probably sell that INCORRECT notion to someone who, just as you, doesn't have a clue about how things work.
You can beat, bang, and bash on me all you like. I've been dodging bullets from SELF SERVING PRICKS like you for 5 long years. Now I'm tired of your shit. And your political agendas.
You're absolutely right! I am out for myself. Just like everybody else. The big difference being that I don't fleece the City Government to survive.
You say you want me to be positive? But I am positive. I'm just not positive about what YOU want me to be positive about. Unlike YOU and the faction you represent, I'm not a feeble minded puppet and I can think for myself. I can also cipher between fact and bullshit.
After all the sticks, stones, and bullshit that have been heaved my way, my Timex is still ticking and I'm standing on my own two feet WITHOUT YOU.
What I believe you are most tired of is someone who is capable of standing up for himself and seeing through all the bullshit put out by you uninformed, small town, rednecked, wannabe politicians.
Last but not least, my ass is still here and there isn't a damn thing YOU or ANYONE else is going to do about it. Put that in your corncob pipe and smoke it.
If you go back and read your post you will note that you told me quite a bit about yourself and who you are. Schizophrenic I may be, but I can still see through your deliberate typos.
It's also pretty obvious to me that you're promoting the Mayor's agenda and I'm alright with that. As indicated by the fact that the Mayor and the Board sent their lawyer to HUD to TRY and knock down the HA, don't spew me with your feigned concern about the welfare of the HA. You rednecks are most concerned about keeping hose gravy train jobs and those big fancy titles, not the City.

I am pleased to hear that you and the Mayor have such a cozy relationship. As per usual, I enjoyed reading your slurs and innuendo. I am also amused that you should resort to the use of such tactics to promote the Mayor's agenda through the use of slurs and scare tactics. That is a common Gallaway staple. Slander, gossip, innuendo, ambush, and other such quaint devices. I have survived tham all.
So you say if the Charter is surrendered that is the end of the Housing Authority? That is purely BULLSHIT and SCARE TALK designed to curry favor with the black population. You DIRTY BASTARDS voted to have your over dresed pimp of a lawyer go to HUD with intentions of demolishing the Housing Authority because you don't want to fix your streets. That little plan backfired in your weasly little faces. How STUPID are you people?
I bet you would like me to move. I've not seen anyone else in this cracker barrel, one-horse town with the balls to stand up to you arrogant, stuffed shirt, SELF-SERVING PRICKS. I hope like hell it flames your ass, as it obviously does.
I have 15 months to collect 50 signatures on a petition for a referendum to surrender the Charter. More than enough time given the fact that I've already got 25 of them.
If the Charter is surrendered the HA will become part of a regional HA and will continue to exist as it always has, business as usual. Realistically, HUD IS NOT going to put 65 families and 300 people out on the streets. That is the BULLSHIT you REDNECKS want to promote in order to keep your big fancy titles and your gravy train jobs. I have always alleged that you're a bunch of MORONS and you're proving it.
Ambush, crush, and destroy anyone who won't go along with all your BULLSHIT. That is how you do business. Well this time it backfired.
As for you, it won't matter who is here, you are not coming back no mattrer how far you stick your nose up the Mayor's ass. Be gone peasant.

Peasant I may be but a fellon I have never been. I also don't have a string of misdemeanors as you do such as drunken arrest in Tunica or stalking and trespassing which you recently pled guilty to right here in Gallaway. You think you are the white knight, friend of the downtrodden but you are only a STINKING slime ball looking to fleece someone. While you were pilfering the maintenance shop at the housing project why didn't you steal some soap. How many friends do you think you have in this county? Billy found you homeless under a bridge, Dean bought you a truck you never paid him back for and Bud Hollingsworth put up bail in your stalking case which you never paid for. He did come to his sences and try to revoke the bail unlike our slow moving mayor who should never given you a second chance to do something positive by appointing you to the housing authourty board. Wake up mayor and remove this cancer from the board before he does more damage to the City. When you approach people with your partition to destroy the city do you tell them that with no city there will be no sponcer for the project and it cannot operate without one. You are a stinking piece of shit that has proven to be a liar, thief and cheat how many people do you think will believe anything you say? LEAVE TOWN EVIL ONE!
