you guys need to look up "the sunshine law" maybe it can help. I rember Gene Mullins and some other county commis, tried the behind closed doors stuff and this was presented and helped with that issue.they are public servants, they work for you! if need be get a lawyer, sue them, and remind them of who they work for. exercise your right to vote and get good officials in there. the polls will be opening before too long.

People have presented the "Sunshine Act" to them before. It worked for about 2 months then they went back to their old ways. Change will never happen in this town until we get good leadership on the council. Small town politics is the same no matter where you go.

He's still running it...He's the one that ran Eldridge out.(Lol) He did it through his buddy Hugh, who brought Caroline and Jennifer Green along to vote on having him fired by the city mgr. They would have done it at the meeting when Eldrigde pitched his fit but they found out it had to go through city mgr. to be legal.
Eldridge was discovered to be feathering his own nest. Stock piling ammunition, fudging his hours, working dual clocks.
You will never hear all the ugly going on up there from that Ding Bat COWARD of an editor at H/C . He would rather print a lies and blow sunshine up everyones bum than print something bad on his buddies but...Now you know!

Thank you my friend, obviously you are In the know. Maybe you should start a newspaper and give Buddy a little competition. It seems they all are "feathering their nest".

There will be an election in August. It is up to the voters to decide if they desire change.

If you keep on doing what you've always done, you will keep on getting what you've always got.
Not good grammar, but a very true statement.
