Babysitting, Mr. Mayor?

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I find it interesting the Mayor of Mammoth feels he has been babysitting Councilman Joe Brewer for the past two years. I have attended town council meetings in Mammoth for two years now and have along with most other residents lost interest in what this council stands for. I have not seen in two years a single motion presented to the floor from any council person. Not a single idea from a council person for the betterment of the town of Mammoth. Since I have not seen a motion presented I will give an example:

Councilperson So and So Wants a new Teen Center for our young adults and has been asked by many concerned Towns people and has formed a committee for the same.

Councilperson So and So asks the Mayor for the floor. Councilman So and So has done research and has found a grant along the lines of a CDBG grant. The Mayor gives him the floor and a motion is presented. A second is acknowledged and the motion is voted on.

First the Mayor needs to give the floor under new business to the Councilperson. Second he needs to ask for a second. Third he must ask for a vote. Yes or no the motion is voted on.

What I hear and see is the floor is never given to Councilman Brewer. Last month I had a Complaint against the Town Clerk printed in The Miner last week. I had given this complaint to Councilman Brewer for all Council persons to review. The floor was denied to Councilman Brewer and two complaints were not presented. Thanks to a good Newspaper all the people of Mammoth are able to review the complaints and get more information than they can at a town meeting.

The Mayor will never answer a question from Mr Brewer. As I see it, if a person will never answer a question he might be hiding something! Just give a answer Mr Mayor and go on with the shortest Town Meetings in the state of AZ. 35 minutes was the fastest one.

The Mayor is famous for tabling a motion until the next meeting but the issue is never heard from again. The Mayor has got attendance down to four or five persons a meeting. The Mayor never asks for a report from department heads. The Mayor never gives a financial statement. The best reports I have witnessed are from the acting Librarian.

Mmmm makes a guy kinda think! Maybe the Mayor should quit and take up babysitting full time!
