    Leave no stone unturned! We need to pray for the Sheriff, JPSO and deputies that are investigating this mess. Also, for Mr. Abbott, who is reporting these items to us. Please take a minute and say a quick prayer for them. Thank you!

    Stay strong investigators and attorneys. We need to get this deceptive person out of office. And, we really need to clean house. How can they be so stupid.

    well i hope they find out it was his money hungry wife doing the spending, also i hope they find out about all the times the iven smith furnature truck was at his house like three times a week for a whole month i bet the town paid for all that furnature they bought

    Bill:

    I agree with you. How can an Ivan Smith Furniture truck be at their house so many times a month. Must have come into a whole bunch of money. Wonder whose it was. Maybe that’s why he needs a 50% salary increase. What they (council) should have done is give him a 3-5 percent increase like everybody else gets. I do not know of a single person that gets a 50% salary increase except this incompetent person. Could the council be getting a little under the table for giving him what he asked for? Just thinking!

        Please,tell us something different. Because half of those people don’t have a clue what is going on.All they know are the lies they have been told.

    • Jason Says:

      A 50% increase would have been $52,500. His salary was doubled which is a 100% increase.

    How much is the monthly pay for the alderman?

    • Anonymous Says:

      I think it’s about 500 a month, Mr. Abbott can shed some light on this.

      • anonymous Says:

        how do they hope to pay themselves? The CD’s can only go so far and who knows if they even still exist? It never stops!
