What an embarrassment tonights Town Council Organizational Meeting was in White Springs. With 1 Council member absent, and the usual 2/2 split vote, a majority could not elect the new Mayor or Vice-Mayor. Well, apparently our Mayor thought that his and Tonja’s positions just automatically continued with a tie vote. Even after the Town Attorney advised him that based on the Town Charter (Chapter 2.2 section (c) and (d) the Mayor and Vice Mayor will be elected by “majority vote” of the Council) he still wanted to press the issue, refused to call a special meeting when all Council members could be present and then went off on a tirade attacking Councilwoman Miller. This after the Gang had in a kangaroo court removed Hellen Miller from her Council Seat and he has the stones to be irate. He even went after the new Council member Tom Moore, about 10 seconds after he was sworn in, chastising him for listening to the Town Attorney on this issue and demanding to know if in the future he would always follow the advice of the Town Attorney. Who does this arrogant prick think he is. What a freekin joke this guy is.
The Town Attorney was very clear when a new Council is elected a new Mayor and Vice-Mayor must be elected by a majority vote of the new Council and until then there is no Mayor or Vice-Mayor. Reminded me of a kid not wanting to be dragged out of the toy store.
Perhaps Teeko Graphics can remove the embroidered “Mayor” title off those snazzy red polo shirts he bought come next Thursday.
