Branson's budget will be ushered through this evening. A full report will be posted later this evening. For those citizens interested in attending this open meeting; dinner will be served at 5:30 at city hall. The meeting will begin at 6:00
Accompanying documentation for a 2008 line item allocating 4,000,000 to Mayor Presley and the Board of Alderman was requested Tuesday night and a response is due shortly. It is also my personal belief that the citizens deserve to know why and where $1.2 million dollars in legal expenses are being spent.
It is understood that the Mayor has requested city's legal counsel to refrain from distributing this vital financial information to the public. Please pray for our leaders that they may receive increased moral fortitude and for my personal protection and safety as I engage public inquiry to serve you.
