Speed Bump #1: The Not So Public Records
Here's the problem. I'm accused of lying in my blog posts and the person claiming that I'm lying has part of the evidence under lock and key. How convenient! (In my Dana Carvey as The Church Lady voice) At this point, I don't know what to call it. I dont know if it's racism or placism. After sitting at city hall for over 30 minutes, I was told that it would take some time to get the records ready and they would call me back later in the day to let me know when I can view the public records. Say it with me, "Now what now?" What do you mean you need time to get records ready that are already supposed to be in the minute books? OAN: Keenon Johnson was rather polite. As a matter of fact, I didn't need to record our interaction. While in the midst of blogging this post, I received a called from Johnson explaining that they are busy processing the bills for the month and advised me that I can view the minute books on Monday, May 4, 2015 after lunch. Again, if the public records room was actually open to the public, I wouldn't need them to go get the books, I could get them myself. Only in Lumberton!
