Chattanooga city attorney found against Templeton

by Cliff Hightower

An investigation by the Chattanooga city attorney found that City Services Director Jimmy Templeton violated city code by not disclosing that some of his family members had jobs with a city contractor.

But City Attorney Mike McMahan wrote that the violations were not “egregious.”

City Council Chairman Manny Rico said the council will discuss the report Tuesday but, based on the report, he doesn’t think any serious harm occurred.

The ethically challenged investigating the ethically challenged.

In addition to "Worst Mayor Ever", we now have the "Worst Administration Ever."

Congratulations, Littlefield. You've finally succeeded at something.

What's the problem? Everyone in Chattanooga is related anyway. After all it's the SOUTH, dammit!! We're all kissin' cousins'. It's darn near impossible to not have a relative working in such a capacity as this.
