GUILTY. GUILTY. GUILTY. I can't wait until the Feds get him for tax evasion among other things. Bubba is going down too!

Both of them are thieves also. They stold thousands of dollars through the shamrock where Taylor's kin folks worked, from bogus gas reciepts and bogus auto repair reciepts from the auto repair shop west of the light on 85. I have been telling people they were crooks for years. It don't take a rocket scientist to figure out that you cant keep buying things and building without a permanent paying job and they don't have one.

I dont know why my post shows humble, but i'm right here in Seven Points

The problem is proving that. I know they did it as well. But, proving it is the problem. Gerald has said he was going to run for office again. How about that?

As soon as you folks tell me when the next public, regular, quorum-attended city council is, I will be there with a video camera so that we can capture these Seven Points council representatives on YouTube.

Something that might work good is to video there properties. None of them live according to city codes. Most of them live like pack rats. Gerald Taylor built a 8' wooden fence to hide his junk without a permit and a 6' fence is the max height for residentiel. Bubba Powell built a new house out of old pallets which will not meet anyones code and also without a permit. No one seems to know where Laywell lives, but looking like a hippi, he probly lives just like the others. You cant get anyone to do anything. Just look at the Tool mayor--3 DWI'S and still mayor. Did i forget, he is also good friends with this dirty group.

Government can't function unless all those running the government function. Chew on that one for awhile.

In response to Had Enough---- Want to know where Hank Laywell lives. Ok Go past Bubbas house to the stop sign, turn right , just keep going past the two streets on the left. On The corner of the second street you will see a 2 story house. That is Hank Laywells house, all grown up with brush and weeds. Looks like more trash. And directly across the street from his house is a small single wide mobile home, white trimed in yellow. Wanda Nichols owns that, and that is one of her rental properties.More trash. I think some needs to contact the fire marshall about all their places.

Hello Lady Bird, I,m so sorry to see that with your name you didn,t get an education. What do I mean? The language you have used on here is down right offensive, there are teens that get on this site. We are suppose to be adults. You have been reported.Now your mouth may have gotten you in trouble. As for your ramblings about Gerald Taylors place and Bubba Powells . Yes I have been to Mr.Gerald Taylors house. Beer cans all over the place, trash . looks almost as bad as Bubba,s place. Now the poolbehind the fence isn,t the permanet type pool.The fence is illeagal.No fence can be over 3ft. tall on the sides of the front. Can,t block access to public service vehicles.Firework stands , all the excess vehicles and who knows what else.Now Mr. Bubba Powell, he knows what he has done is not legal. no permits, wouldn,t pass a fire inspection. Now don,t get on your soap box and tell me what a great guy he is. He is Gerald Taylors puppet, and the sooner he wakes up and see whats going on the better off he will be. Now just where has Bubba Powell got money to build a new house when the courts had to appoint him and attorney? Maybe they need to take another look at his finances again.Like everyone has said crooks, crooks.And it looks like maybe you might be as fine a citizen as they are.

Ya know, it makes no difference to me what the Mayor's private life is about. I know him on a first name basis & I have nothing bad to say about the way he runs the mayors office. Whereas, when we first moved here, I was told the mayor (GT) ran city hall like he wanted to. I bumped into him a couple of times & he struck me as he was "above everyone" else. Was not very friendly and could care less what anyone had to say. I'm glad he got caught doing what he did. Our little town didn't need a thief for a mayor. I proudly support Mayor Dobbs & applaude his efforts. Now we have a great Mayor & a great group of upcoming City Council members. Now maybe something positive will happen on Seven Points. TY to the people of Seven Points for their confidence of our new city government !

All I have is 1 ? for each; Has/was Mayor Dobbs, arrested for any wrongdoings while in office ? NO
Has/was ex-Mayor Taylor arrested for any wrongdoings while in office ? YES to quote from a tv Judge, "Ya bleedin from a self-inflicted wound."
