Mayor Hays follows Stodola's lead - but where is the leader for the people?

Mayor Hays follows Stodola's lead - but where is the leader for the people?

Friday, Mayor Hayes of North Little Rock called for a special meeting of city council.  Why the early morning meeting or where the money will go is an even bigger mystery.  It seems as if it is in an effort to avoid the population that would pay the taxes levied for.

According to my paycheck, I pay 16% taxes and then I went to Office Depot on McCain Blvd in North Little Rock and paid 8% taxes for various office supplies.  That’s a total of 24% taxes. Another half percent?

While submarines, trolleys and tugboats are great for a sustainable population, the homeless and jobless folks that I meet late night in Argenta as well as the schools, need to keep what money they have.

There are roughly 10,000 kids within five miles of city hall who live at the poverty line or below. What about them?
