Looks like things go pretty smooth when Jones is absent. That should tell us something.

Things also went smooth before Purcell was elected.

What did Gerald jones do retire already?And will he still get paidfor missing all of these meetings?Almost sounds like some of the city council members they are hardly show up for council meetings.

Will they be using gravel from Larry Bock's quarry business? Follow the money, people.

Jones was probally out striaghtening up some mess the yo yo jay made.

When Jay leaves is when we will see smooth. That's going to be too long for most of us. When the new commissioner gets in place I predict it won't be too long before Jay will be stirring on something.
