The good ole girl network

Posted By on Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 4:54 PM

Remember "Republican" Jill Dabbs, the mayor of Bryant, and Bryant clerk "Republican" Heather Kizer? The Saline County GOP sent out an email this afternoon asking for Republicans to come to tonight's city council meeting to show support the "Republicans." From county party Chairman Brett Hooton:

As you know Bryant City Clerk Heather Kizer and Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs, both members of our Republican Committee, recently shook up the "good ole boy" network in Bryant. Jill and Heather were not card holding members of the Bryant establishment. Instead they were two conservative citizens who recognized that the government of the city of Bryant needed to change. In their short time in office they've found ways to drastically cut spending and improve transparency; two things the "good ole boys" don't like. In retaliation Jill and Heather have been the targets of countless attacks.

Tonight some of this may be discussed and Republicans Jill and Heather need our support. Please plan to attend the Bryant City Council meeting tonight at 7pm. Get there early and get a seat. We want the courtroom packed with supporters.

It must be nice to live in a world where giving yourself a raise without city council approval is considered cutting spending and improving transparency. Hooton's email did not hint at what might be happening at tonight's meeting. Here's the agenda, courtesy of eLwood.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
