  • Herbert Cohn
  • Tom Griscom
  • Mai Bell Hurley
  • Jim Kennedy III
  • Chrystal Partridge
  • Karen McMahon
  • Theresa Liedtka

Another one-sided, pro-Republican story from Cliff Hightower.

What is going to happen to the library branches in the county? Apparently, they will be abandoned and leaderless under this plan. Those employees deserve better. We notice that no critical questions about this serious and directly destructive event were asked by the reporter covering this disaster.

This is a major problem. Once again, your city reporter turns a blind eye to the horrifying and serious ramifications of another corrupt politicians self-serving lies. Get in there and report the full facts about what is going on.

How about some questions for the previous board on why none of the substantive organizational changes that were needed - and outlined in that 2009 consultants report taxpayers paid a mint for - were ever implemented? When will we start asking for some accountability and improvements? The library system is as awful as it was five years ago.
