Call for Resignations
We, the Citizens for Representative Government of Mclendon-Chisholm, believe that Mayor Gary Moody, Councilmen Steve Hatfield, Jack Pullen, and Patrick Short are HONORABLE men of INTEGRITY and HIGH CHARACTER. It was for these reasons that we put our faith in them to represent us.
It is why we now express our disappointment & outrage over the actions of these fine men who have barred us from voting on momentous decisions that have resulted in the depletion of our city's capital reserves, put us into long-term debt for the first time in history for $1.5M, increased that debt just months later by $600K without any notification, and are now proposing extraordinary spending increases that will raise 2016 taxes by 228%!
Even more egregious, in a July 30, 2015-dated letter these fine men distorted the facts about the proposed 228% tax increase by deceptively presenting half-truths that demonstrates a calculating attempt to mislead the public.The lack of integrity exhibited in the letter is indefensible.
Our trust has been shattered; our faith, betrayed.
We can therefore no longer put our trust in these men to lead by the conviction of their character.We can no longer have faith in their ability to present all of the facts necessary to make an informed and thoughtful decision as to whether or not to support their proposed budget.
We believe that these men want first what is best for the people of McLendon-Chisholm, as no man is to be greater than the office. It is therefore incumbent on these fine men to demonstrate the true conviction of their character & step down from the privilege of office to restore integrity to the City Council.
He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise. He who neglects discipline despises himself, but he who listens to reproof acquires understanding. The fear of the LORD is the instruction for wisdom, And before honor comes humility. -Proverbs 15:31-33
