Leave it to Taylor to come up with this. Maybe u people deserve this mayor.after all the others ones before. Is lamarand the worst mayor Taylor has had? Who was the best or was there ever one? Nothing ceases to amaze me from Taylor! Honestly. This whole city comes off as comical to me! What next? R there actually spoiled people in this city? Could be? I honestly don't know if this guy is so bad or just being depicted as such. That goofy recall failed.stay tuned folks!lol ?

Do u honestly think this rises to level of getting Wayne county prosecutors involved? What gives here? This mayor has a right to determine what is logical. Look at Wayne county govt. Who in this arena has never told a fib? Remember he was elected and he has mayoral job until next election. Hopefully prosecutor will throw outthis request by judge. Remember that most of property taxes go to county. They seem to spend it like Taylor does.who is monitoring city council in Taylor and others in leader roles in Taylor and other cities to make sure things r done properly? Is this mayor being constantly criticized when others should be too? Taylor has weathered this economic storm better than some cities.remember picketing last year? What other cities have u seen doing it for similar things?

Seems like the whole city is criticizing the mayor yes he was at fault but how about the rest of the city gov take the police for example seems like they like to take the law in their own hands and abuse their power and be over aggressive thats a good way to spend money lets get the city sued for police brutality or lets put up fancy lights all through the city and raise the ppl taxes thats why we have so many tax repossessed homes taylor has a lot more problems then just the mayor
