Close most of Cobb's library branches?
Them's fightin' words, you worthless polecat,?(Commission Chairman) Tim Lee. You pretend to have the county's best interests at heart but what you urge is totally the opposite.
OK, folks - here's what we gotta do: Form up a verbal posse and track down this lyin' critter in his posh office and haul him off to the Court of Common Sense.
Multiple charges could be held against him - reckless endangerment of the common good would be one of them. Failure to consider the consequences of his proposals would be another.
Has he ever been inside a Cobb library branch and observed how it is so helpful to so many different kinds of people? Even the smallest one, like the Gritters branch, is always busy. Mothers, or their helpers, are there, helping little ones find books or having them enjoy story times. Teenagers are doing research; people like me are searching for things of interest to read - for ourselves or others who are bedridden and can't come on their own? People who are lonely and just come to read and enjoy a peaceful environment around others.
His proposal, along with his ideas about cutting fire and police protection, is insane. The impact of instituting his measures will be catastrophic. Perhaps he should consider taking a pay cut, ordering his pork barrel buddies do the same, giving up superfluous perks, and re-examine his strange notions about what Cobb really needs. Or maybe the ulterior motive is to bully us in to accepting another tax hike without being too angry?
He might get off Scot free in the Court of Common Sense, but there are a bunch of us armed with our votes to demand his recall or at least vote him and the rest of those scoundrels out ASAP!
