Re: “Gould Council bans citizens group

Instead of assumming the council is a bunch of idiots why don't some of you use your time researching this issue. The FOI laws in Arkansas are very good. For instance, the Gould Mayor. Go throug the District Court system in Gould, Star City and Lincoln county, Dumas, McGhee and Deshea county, and FOI the Mayors records for citations. Find out who the people are who make up this Advisory Council and do the same. I bet several will come back with shady records. The council made a mistake, they know it and will recind these ordinances. Just don't assume the Mayor and his Advisory Council are right. They are using this mistake to take advantage of the situation and take the heat off them. Also keep in mind that many of the Advisory Coouncil members are NOT from Gould. What makes them so anxious to help Gould instead of their own towns? You have to understand that the Mayor will discuss things with the Advisory Council that he will not address with the other elected officials. Is this tryiing to cooperate? As this situation goes on I believe the truth will come out. The politics in Gould are complicated and go way back. Gould's debts are enormous for a town their size and they are broke. These huge debts didn't just pop up overnight and the Mayor was the previous Recorder/Treasurer. The Advisory Council says they hellp select and elect good candidates for office-obviously those who have been in office are the ones who llet this debt get out of hand. Not paying payroll taxes for years? That's basic bookeeping. Instead of finding QUALIFIED candidates they vote for your friends or relatives. No one is trying to take anyone's individual rights away. Oh by the way-did I mention that the Mayor is furnishing the Advisory Council free office space-supposedly for 50 years and at city expense? The city is broke, can barely make payroll and pay the taxes but they are giving free space away. Oh well, just remember, there are always two sides!!
