Brookshire Has A Tantrum
|All that was missing was stomping his feet and
holding his breath. Showing everyone yet again why he has appropriately
earned the title, "Matt The Brat" Lenoir City Mayor Matt Brookshire took
out his ire on Councilman and Vice Mayor Buddy Hines. Apparently Mr.
Hines didn't get the memo that no one is suppose to question the mayor.
In what could only be considered a bizarre item on Monday's city council agenda, Brookshire presented a plan to put City Hall up for sale and to take proposals from interested buyers. According to Brookshire, there is a buyer interested in purchasing the building. Unfortunately, the city is at least five to ten years away from building a new City hall. Councilman and Vice Mayor Buddy Hines made the mistake of asking a couple of questions like "if we sell the building where will we go?" "How much will it cost the city to relocate city hall?" That was all it took. Brookshire popped his cork.
There was an illegal meeting of city council last Tuesday where apparently there was a lot of discussion about Brookshire's intention to put city hall up for sale. The meeting had only one day's notice in the Daily Digest which is a violation of the public notice laws requiring adequate notice of public meetings. According to Brookshire, only four councilmen were at the meeting. Hines was out of town.
Brookshire did make a feeble attempt to apologize for his rude and childish actions but even that turned into more of a hate filled statement for any who would dare to challenge him.
Brookshire's actions at Monday's council meeting once
again show so clearly what a spoiled, arrogant contemptible, smart-aleck
little man he really is. His tirade at councilman Hines was
entirely uncalled for. Mr. Hines asked simple, logical questions of the
mayor expecting answers. All he got from Brookshire was a boat load of
disrespect and contempt. Brookshire made it clear that voting "NO" on
something he wants is unacceptable. As a far leftwing liberal,
Brookshire labors under the illusion that he knows what's best for
