Re: “Fayetteville mayor decries wage theft

@eLwood - wow! you really don't have a clue, do you? The Today in America program was fully vetted and is very legitimate. The communication director (which was not the only applicant to donate to the mayor's campaign BTW) among other staff investigated thoroughly and negotiated the contract to allow for the City to choose the markets AND get FULL rights to the program - unheard of for $20,000. Paid parking on Dickson was required because the UA refused to provide parking for their students and staff so they were taking 25-50% of WAC and other Dickson area parking away from paying customers. The City should find a way to bill the UA but unfortunately they don't have to answer to anyone but the Feds and state. The paid parking will provide much more affordable parking in the area and grow the customer base. That's just part of being an attraction center for the region. No aptitude for the job - how about the best mayor Fayetteville has seen in decades! No results from the economic development plan - BS -I personally know of dozens of people and businesses that have benfitted financially either through new jobs, job growth, business growth, or other improvements.
Block street was in desperate need of improvements and these improvements are safer and most businesses on the street LOVE it and have seen increased customers.
A mayor who puts others first - always - gives to others, and refused to take a higher income before his staff could. He's cut his office expenses way beyond the past egomaniac and greedy mayors. He cares about the people first. His proclamation and effort on wage theft is one small example. Someone needed to take a stand and he'll be the first nearly every time.
Spin is one thing, out right lies are another. Shame on you!

I wish some people would check their facts before posting these comments.
