I found myself laughing after reading Manning Asks Action On Gobble Contract At Next East Ridge City Council Meeting.
People complained about the Good Ole Boys in East Ridge politics and could not wait to vote them out. What changed after the election? A few new faces, but it is still Good Ole Boys politics.
A year ago everyone loved Mr. Gobble (including Manning) and now everyone is against him because he hurt someone's feelings and now Mr.Gobble has to go. You have to crack a few eggs to make an omelet and from what I see Mr.
Gobble is a good cook. Mr. Manning is a good man and easily mislead by the new faces in East Ridge politics. Denny, wake up and stand for what you believe and not what you are told to believe.
The new faces are even trying to push around Chief Phillips. Rumor is that they want to split up the Public Safety Department, remove Chief Phillips and hire someone's family member to be police chief and hire someone to be fire chief. My question is why, if it is not broke don't try to fix it. Two chiefs instead on one - twice the payroll, twice the benefits package and twice the take home cars, training and so on.
I hope Manning is not part of this too, but I will say we all know how rumors get twisted around and some are not even true.
