Council’s focus should be on the needs of PB


Editor, The Commercial:

Alderwoman Thelma Walker’s comments are appalling.

After I read Alderwoman Thelma Walker’s response to the mayor’s veto of legislation that would require the patrol division of the police department to move to the armory, I was completely appalled.

My question to the Alderwoman is, how can you infer the mayor isn’t doing her job when you haven’t attended a single town hall meeting?

The people of Pine Bluff spoke loud and clear on Nov. 6, 2012. Believe it or not, Debe Hollingsworth is our mayor. The council’s focus should be Pine Bluff and not bitterness, ignorance and hate. I hope Alderwoman Walker and her counterparts put the needs of the people first or the people will surely find someone who will.
