“I’m afraid you’re stirring up sentiment that shouldn’t be stirred up with people,”he said,
“And you’re getting people against the rest of these council members, because of some of these things you’ve said.”During his turn, Jarrett accused Edwards of gossiping and the other three council members of voting together, which, he said, was why he felt he had to post his comments on the internet. Council Member Jonathan Bishop, however said in his time at the podium that of the 26 motions Jarrett has brought before council, Bishop voted against Jarrett only three times, Mrs. Tipton twice and Mr. Cronic once.
“We have voted with you (Jarrett),”Bishop said,
“23 times.”He went on to list the accomplishments of the council, which included “fixing” the budget by not spending $70,000 dollars more than the city received; replacing county vehicles, and promoting City Clerk Brandy Edwards to the city manger position, which Bishop said will improve city operations.
