Letter to the editor

Dear editor,

Last Thursday night I was out of town and was not able to attend the called session of the City Council meeting.

I understand, from talking to people, that it was another nearly four hour pony show that the mayor put in place.

I understand that over three hours of this meeting was in executive session.

If the Mayor and City Administrator would look in the TML rule book I truly believe that the things going on behind closed doors are against the rules.

I really don’t feel like they ever look in the book.

I wished that the Mayor would take in consideration the people who are connected to our City.

I have noticed in the long meetings that it appears to me that the 88-year-old City Councilman is worn out.

I can see the fatigue on his face.

What I have to say to the Mayor is shame...shame..shame on you.

Remaining clerks to be trained for Nov. elections

Despite being short two employees, recently re-elected County Clerk Linda Jarvis is confident about the upcoming May runoff election. Jarvis said Chief Deputy Dianne Manning and Elections Clerk Crystal Rossiaky are no longer with her office, but the remaining employees will be trained – and cross trained – in the elections process and other office procedures. Previously, Jarvis handled the elections until turning it over to Rossiaky and Manning. Jarvis said all clerks in her office will learn the election process and one will be named elections clerk. Jarvis and that clerk will also attend Elections School this summer, a state-mandated course. Commissioner's recently approved an order of poll books for the November election and the entire staff will be trained in their usage. The runoff election is slated for May 22 for the following candidates:
