Amazed... there was a previous study done on this which indicated significant cost savings by eliminating duplicated services. However, the City chose to ignore their own vote of approval to move forward with it.
The problem I see with doing this now, is that we still have a majority of City and County Commissioners who are too shallow-minded to know how to do this kind of project. They have also demonstrated their lack of intelligence to make good cost reduction decisions.
Carlton incorrectly writes about the purpose of the study...."if it should do away with its county-funded police department ($15,000)".
This is not what the study is looking at. The study is to determine if there are potential cost saving alternatives for combining the DoCo Police with the Sheriff's division.
As for Commissioner's Gaines, Hudgins and Stone, they are being irresponsible representatives for this county by not wanting to understand the FACTS, and by not wanting to consider cost saving alternatives. Congratulations to Commissioner Lyle for standing up to the nay sayers!
Walt... it is indeed unfortunate that there are still too many who are too narrow minded, and who are too narrowly focused on past injustices to see that these groups only help perpetuate a continuence of racist attitudes. There is no need, and no place anymore for racially titled groups or schools, if we are to achieve an improved society.
Thanks Sis... I just considered it another racist viewpoint from one of the "dumb masses".
Ihope... does your shallow-minded rant mean we should let the black racists have their black only groups so that they can show how "atrocities against humanity" used to be?
Carlton, congrats for starting the thought process in the right direction!
However, even though your article was just on these specific committee groups, your scope in your next article could also focus on the Commissioners being elected.
Every bullet point in your article could also be applied to the commissioners. I have also witnessed a City Commissioner (Postell) coming in late to a meeting, plopping his hat on the table, and then rudely walking over to get a cup of coffee during another public figure's deliver of information. His racist quota comments have also been heard. County Commissioners Jack Stone and Lamar Hudgins have also been hostile toward the public's views. It is time to hold these reps accountable!
"This group is about working together," Hubbard said. It's about bringing everybody in and having everybody work together."
Just one simple question, but I am sure it will be hard for someone to honestly answer, why is it called "The Georgia Conference of Black Mayors"???????
Straightface - this type of "shaking up" is needed for both the city and county. From what I have seen and heard, it seems Taylor has the right ideas and approach. However, he seems to be up against a very shallow-minded and inept Board of Commissioners who keep overriding his suggestions.
Keep it going Mr. Mosley!!!
Sending these disciplinary messages will help change the mindset for those who think they will be able to continue down the path of "that's the way we have always done it".
The next step will be to start strong disciplinary actions for the disruptive and disrespectful students who rob the valuable learning time from the students who really want to learn. This will help change the mindset for the parents and community that we are on the road to recovery from the past poor leadership. It also sets an example to see what actions lead to success.
The issue Jimboob seems to be with where to draw the line with helping the "truly needy", versus continually giving to those who only seem to want a handout. There is no commandment or directive that says help others "without condition", as you have stated.
For example, if you were totally committed to helping and serving the needy, then why do you have a computer to access this site? Should you give up all that you work for to help others (who do not want to work)to have just as much as you? As info, these questions are meant to bring pause for thought and not a direct slam on you. Helping those who are truly on hard times is one thing. Helping those who can help themselves to be self-sufficient is another. Even Christ told the farmers to leave the outer layers of their crops for the poor to COME to harvest. He did not say take these portions to the poor.
