It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    No matter what idiot proposed the anti Bill of Rights rule? It still took the whole Council, Mayor & deputy to vote it in! And to think one of those idiots is running to be your Constitution speaker?!!

      You understand this cartoon is about the County Commission, and not City Council, right? And what is a “Constitution speaker”?

  2. Tracey DeBruhl duh huh

    My bad, your right. Brownie was the one that ran a double campaign with whatser face when me & Keith & Axia ran.. The City Council just voted to where you can’t public comment on issues! The City Manager played buddy buddy bringing in a white guy to cover her ass when people started calling her racist, now come to find out they were trying to help Chris Bailey get away with felonies! Who used to work with the black guy on her all ethnic selection board that wasn’t interviewing highly qualified look people & white people! But now he’s interim police chief! When we all ready had a interim chief thats questionable how he promoted thru a decade of corruption? How the hell did we trade down?!? I say we can the whole lot of em! Including Debra Campbell’s Racism & the we’re not dumb enough to buy your phoney crap!! We were doing better without you wasting our tax dollars!!

      Umm, I must have missed that when “City Council just voted to where you can’t public comment on issues”. Can you point me to any story where that was reported?

    LOL Brownie oh Brownie. The guy who got into politics to push his business, make millions, and become a little power hungry in the process. Along with many ethics violations that should be investigated, his ability to dictate public questioning of how their money is spent should be a wake up call. Especially after the Green fiasco.
