Squawk of the day - May 16, 2012

" How in the world can Velvet Riggins vote to dismiss the lunchroom director when she is under indictment for school lunch fraud? Even if the governor will not get her off the board, if she had any ethics, she would choose not to vote in school lunch matters."

Since when does an innocent until proven guilty liar and thief have ethics?

How does "ethics" enter into the routine in Albany & Dougherty County? The more unethical they are, the more qualified they are to serve in that cesspool.

Does Riggins' vote create a loophole in Hayes' dismissal?

Didn't Goseer do the same thing? He stole money intended for educating the children, only he didn't lie about it - he thinks the legality of his action is up for debate. It isnt'!!!

EVERYONE NEEDS TO LOOK BEYOND THE TREES. LET OL'VELVET CONTINUE TO REMAIN OBLIVIOUS AND KEEP ON SHOOTING HERSELF IN THE FOOT. VELVET IS ON HER WAY OUT AND GOING DOWN IN FLAMES. SHE DISPLAYS NOT ONE SHRED OF ETHICS AND APPARENTLY HAS NO CONCEPT OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. THIS IS ONE WAY TO GET RID OF HER.

The proper thing for her should have been to abstain in voting on that particular matter. But we know there isn't a proper thought going on in the "failed four's" heads.

Oh and what about Williams-Brown not even showing up for the meeting at all? She announced her candidacy and then doesn't show up for a meeting a couple of days later. Yeah, it shows how serious she is about being re-elected. Vote for Dr. Price! Since she is retired I am sure she will show up to meetings and vote responsibly.
