I say that we recall him again, this time with the 15,000 votes that we need. If the judge rules against us because we didn't cross the "t" or dot the "i", we will cross the "t" and dot the "i" this time and throw Littlefield's butt out of office.
His wife was apparently handing out Scripture that was from the Old Testament talking about not speaking against the Lord's anointed. This is a democracy and taking Scripture out of context is unwise. This guy arrogance never ceases to amaze me. His picture is next to the definition of narcissist in the dictionary.
Hopefully this thing will be wrapped up next week and Chattanooga will be looking for its next mayor. A mayor for the people, who will hear their voice. A mayor who will see many of the Chattanoogans who are struggling and work with them instead of against them. A mayor who in humility will make decisions, for the people instead of for HIS policies. We can hope that we will have a mayor who works for us instead of thinking that WE THE PEOPLE work for him. We can hope for a mayor who does not easily "fly off the handle" and fling personal attacks whenever his emotions prompt him to do so.
Let's hope that Judge Hollingsworth will hear our voice in the 15,000 votes that were submitted. When it comes to state law or city council standards, it is very clear that the city laws prevail and that 9,000 signatures does in fact recall the mayor. But instead of Littlefield listening to the voice of the people, he once again, ignores us. Despite the fact that he has been defeated, he is still fighting on the small technicalities with the hopes that he will be able to stay in office. This again paints a true picture of who this man really is.
You have been fired Littlefield. For once put the people of Chattanooga before yourself, and give up, you have been defeated. Quit ignoring our voice, the people you work for, and quit driving the city of Chattanooga into the ground.
Mr. West, did keep the email. Here are all of them posted on the Times Free Press...http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2010/sep/01/e-mail-exchanges-show-angst-mayor-growing-movement/?politics
Read about our mayor's arrongant response and how he tries to bully Mr. West into meeting with him. Littlefield is mentally disturbed.
I think it is important to note that Littlefield was required by law to release these emails to the public upon request, yet he only released certain ones to the media. THERE WERE OTHERS THAT WERE NOT RELEASED. The complete list above is due to the Tea Party President releasing them. Once again the mayor distorts and spins the truth and hides the truth from the public. HE DISGUSTS ME!
elvisd, I agree with you. Chris Brooks being paid as a political consultant is alot better than Zach Littlefield (Ron's son) who is unemployed, but does play drums in a band for some money. See the mayor just cannot talk because everything he condemns others for, he is guilty of in his own life.
Thank you Chattanooga Tea Party for being honest and transparent and not stooping to the mayor's level. It is quite evident that Littlefield is on a path to self destruction, and even if the courts rule in his favor, his true character has been revealed for all Chattanoogans to see.
His arrogance is offensive and he does not seem to realize that he works for the people of Chattanooga, not the people of Chattanooga working for him as his attitude insinuates. He is using intimidation and power to force HIS way and HIS policies. Because everything is about HIM. The average Chattanoogans income is down over $900. This is the worst economic downturn in 80 years and he actually proposes a 33% tax increase? Are you serious? Even 19% is beyond reasonable, all the while property values are going down. Then to mention his millions over dollars in storm water fees.
Sorry YOUR EXCELLENCY. YOU ARE NOT ON A MISSION FROM GOD! YOU ARE ON A MISSION FOR MAYOR RON LITTLEFIELD! YOU HAVE BEEN FIRED! NOW REPENT AND GO HOME! QUIT IGNORING THE CRY OF THE PEOPLE!
Here is the Chattanooga Tea Party Leader's response to Littlefield's outlandish and unprofessional personal attacks...http://bit.ly/axqmcd
