Cora In Charge: Lord Help Us ALL
Before the meeting, Kent Crider was explaining how he already contacted the Attorney General about his plan to run for the position of mayor. Unfortunately, he is not required to resign in order to run for mayor. Basically, he can run for mayor, failed to get elected as mayor and still have a position on the board. Bummer. I think Cora Rogers is also planning on putting her hat in the ring because she really, really, really wants to be mayor. Well, I say they both should go for it. Let’s see how much confidence the citizens of Lumberton have in individuals that have failed to call for accountability and integrity since becoming elected officials. I guess Crider is working on getting his share of the spotlight because he’s trying to convince the two time thief, Hugh James McGraw aka Jay McGraw, to resign in order to save the city some money. Personally, I think McGraw has some mental issues and I don’t think he has any plans of resigning.
Since Crider wanted some extra time to speak with McGraw, there will be another special call meeting next Tuesday to set a date for the special election. I hope Kent Crider and Cora Rogers decide to run for the office of mayor because it would give someone like me an opportunity to also join the race. I think if I won the position of mayor, all of Lumberton’s department heads would quit the day I’m sworn in. Just getting elected as mayor, I would single handedly clean up city hall. Wouldn’t it be ironic that I would get elected as mayor and Ben Winston started blogging about me. I don’t know who would write the blog for him since he barely speaks intelligibly but the thought of our roles reversing has me cracking up. On a serious note, I hope the person that’s seeking election realize they’re going into a hornet’s nest and will probably get stung a few times. But on the brighter side, they only have to endure the remaining two years. Just something to think about.
