Tupelo Think Tank

Just a thought. We have about 5 or 6 individuals  that think clearly and see things from a myriad of perspectives. Would any of you be willing to meet on a monthly basis and talk about Tupelo problems and possible solutions? We as a city are  in trouble and I mean bigtime. Tuesday’s morning the DJ published a picture of the apartments on Jackson and reported them as the “DeShong” Apartments. The problem is Judy sold those apartments in the mid or late 90s. The rest of the story is she went ot the DJ and complained. Vigorously and with indignation. After investigation it was uncovered an agreement by the Mayor’s office and promulgated by the City Council not  to reveal the owners name as a condition of sale so the last owners name was used. Ms. DeShong, a Tupelo resident, property owner, taxpayer and business owner was thrown under the bus to save the name of a out of town slumlord. If you don’t believe, when was the last time you saw a correction on the front page of the DJ and the named of the slum lord. And now the Airport’s day in court will finally come. If I understood what I heard yesterday Terry Anderson will finally get his day in court, If the wheels of justice move any slower the present Director will be on his next job. Back to TTT. Could be fun and after the first or second meeting we could invite the press. What fun.
