  1. Where my GOP? says:

    So sad that Mike Ragsdale is the real Mayor behind the throne. Never seen so much conflict of interest as this. Glenn Jacobs puts Ragsdale’s partner Mike Arms on the Charter Review Committee? Can you make it any more obvious?

    Glenn is kidding himself if he thinks there will ever be an appointed Law Director. This will end badly for Glenn. Do a Google search Buddy, this is like Metro Gov. Which Glenn thought was a great idea until everyone told him what a bad idea it was. Out of touch. Bad advice. Ragsdale Pawn.
