Re: “An Arkansas legislative session full of misplaced priorities

The city of Gould doesn't need the help of law makers. They need to learn how to appreciate the leadership that is put into place by the people. As you may or may not know I served as mayor and brought the city out of bankruptcy, got old debits forgiven, got the IRS to forgive over $300,000.00 in back taxes, fix streets, that had not been fix in 40-50 years, new sewer system without any cost to the citizens, fema funding for the city and the citizens, repaired the fire and police department with the current leadership in place, restored the faith of state funders in the city, between taxes, grant funding, property donations and savings in the six years I served the citizens of Gould the city received over 2.5 million in funding. But now I have moved on to another level in another state, why did I leave Gould, no matter how much I gave to the community there were people like my recorder/treasure, fire chief, police chief, judges, prosecutors, country law enforcement, city council members along with other citizens working to force me out. How can you justify giving a police chief a $7000 raise within 3 months of working, giving other police officers a big raise, $3,000.0 raise recorder/treasure but you leave the mayor making $298.00 every two weeks and the council tells the mayor go get a real job. The city of Gould is on solid ground now not so much because of help from lawmakers but because as the leader of the community I took responsibility of the city's condition and sought out solutions to fix the conditions. I went to lawmakers with a plan. The city doesn't need a hand out from lawmakers they need to learn not to bite the hand that feeds you. Stand with Mayor Cabbleton, stop playing the victim, be strong and move forward.
