Changing the Subject...

Alrighty, how about the Mayor of Greenville going part time? Mayor Hudson has opened her own law practice in her dad's old location. She will be working half days as Mayor and the other as an attorney.....questions to be does this affect Greenville? what about the bodyguards, are they to be paid City tax dollars, while she is at her law practice??

How much of her law office expenses and business traveling will end up being covered by the City???....As full time Mayor she was/is pretty awful, part time????? Well that might be an improvement in the long run! LOL

Let Councilmen Gines or McGee take the second shift, we might have a chance with her out of pocket!

Interesting! Who among us would not like to be paid the same salary for half the work? Of course the Mayor's salary will not make anyone rich, but any attorney worth their salts could make three times as much, particularly in Daddy's law firm.

The questions posed by this author are quite valid. Will the Mayor only be reimbursed for a one-way ticket to Europe? Will she be reduced to only two bodyguards? Will ribbon-cuttings and civic appearances now have to be planned around her court docket?

All interesting questions which I am sure will be played out in the near future. Perhaps she should contact Kim Dowdy and see if she is still interested in the job on a "part-time" basis. Job sharing seems to be all the rage these days!

The salary is much too high for part-time mayor in Greenville but a part-time mayoral position isn't a bad thing.

It reflects the changing times and local economic conditions and the fact that if the mayor needs more salary, she's is going to work in her field of expertise to get more salary.

In fact, is she moves forward to make the mayoral position a part-time job for future administrations, then she'll have implemented a rather thought-provoking and basic city government reform.

Weigh it out before you condemn it. Elements of this career move for the mayor are positive.

So, we can assume that she plans to give back half her salary to the city? Wow, I want to buy some of that beach front property too!!!!!

How much does she make as mayor?

Time will tell said...

Word is apparently the position has always been part time, she is the first to make it so.

The salary apparently remains the same, so there is no savings. Something that our hopefully wiser City Council will change ASAP based on this discovery by the Mayor. Greenville needs to save every dime it can to avoid over taxing a depressed economy and its citizens.

Seems to me if the Council are part time employees, it makes sense for the Mayor's position to be as well. Apparently, there must not be much work to it (she proves that every day in her travel schedules and her "busy" personal schedule), if it can be considered a part time job!

I would think if the job is done right, there should be plenty to be done on a full time basis....but then based on our present Mayor, I must be wrong!:>)

In my opinion said...

Cutting Bodyguard salaries in half would be the first step to savings! Dismissing Bodyguards all together would be even better for savings! None of the rest of the City Staff has bodyguards at any point of their day. What is she saying or doing that she feels the need for a bodyguard?? Whatever it is, she can stop doing it!LOL

Supposedly she is so popular, if so, then there is NO need for a bodyguard for such a "loved" Mayor...*cough* :>)

Perhaps a few courses in self defense would suffice to replace the need?? Maybe the Police Chief can arrange that for her!

Meanwhile, at least the Greenvile Police Dept. will be relieved of "protecting" her at any and all functions during the course of every day, while being taken away from their real jobs to serve and protect! They can go back to fighting crime and get away from babysitting duties to the Mayor, while she shops, plays, travels, watches TV or sleeps! No more 24/7 protection. She can be like the Council and the rest of us, on our own. As long as she knows the 911 number, she can manage just as well too!

I am sure those for this service to her will insist that because she is a black female Mayor, she needs protection from the red neck population, but I am not buying that excuse either. That is a cop out. Right before her last election, supposedly she received a threatening phone call that justifies this need for bodyguards. I would like to know in the past 5 years of her terms, just how many calls like this has she recived?? I think it was convenient timing on the last one and since then, we have heard nothing more in follow up calls. One or two calls in five years does not justify bodyguards. Perhaps for a few days, if deemed really necessary, but not forever! She can not only take self defense classes, but she could get a permit to carry a weapon if needed. Again, I am sure the Police Chief can help her on that one too, including lessons on self protection with weapons from guns to mace. This is not Chicago or New York, paying so many tax dollars to "protect" her is a waste of money. If the job is that dangerous, why did she run for it, not once; but twice? Seems to me if she is that afraid, she needs to step down from the office and let someone who is not afraid handle the position. No other Mayor needed this kind of protection in the past and few, if any, Mayors in Mississippi have this kind of a perk either.

If she truly believes she needs this kind of protection, then let's see her pay for it, for the second half of her day, on her time, in her new law practice and not ours, for a while. Since the salary for Mayor remains the same and with her new part time lawyer business, she can certainly afford it! That should tell the story. If she does not or is not willing to spend the money for bodyguards from her own salary for her second job, then why should we on her first job?

This could work said...

I doubt Kim Dowdy would want to share the job and clean up after her every day or shoulder the Mayor's actions in the aftermath of her poor runnings of the city!LOL Then again, the Council meetings are always in the afternoon, while Mayor Hudson is practicing lawyer duties at that same time, Kim might be in the best position to counteract the mornings' shift damages being on the second/afternoon shift!

the mayor should need no help in defendin herself considering her size.she is not whitney houston,reguardless as to what her daddy has told her.

Let's not be so hard on the mayor for wanting to get some work experience. After all, working for Daddy is the only job she's ever held. As for getting out, it can be done and by the middle class. Go for it. I did and I don't regret it.

I wonder why this part time mayor of Greenville has this big salary a month. We don't know but maybe something is going wrong with the resources of his salary. In our company, all employees are being paid well by payroll outsourcing team from a reputable payroll outsourcing company. I think the government must have these kinds of outsourcing companies so that everything will be fair.
