Re: “Council Wants More Lunch, Travel

I forgot that there might be other staff as well in the lunch budget. But really, they work 25 days a year, can they not go to lunch in the city on their own like all the other downtown workers?

That's a pretty expensive price tag for a committee.

Re: “Council Wants More Lunch, Travel

Entitlement much? They work 25 days a year!

Travel: The council members should only travel to events dictated by the position itself. Professional growth should be done on their own time & on their own dime. The city council is not a permanent position.

As for the lunch? Do other city employees, let alone the majority of Memphians, get catered $30 lunches daily? These members are in session less than a month a year. I'm sure the members are able to pack a lunch on those days they are in session. Besides, I'm sure the city budget could put that $10k to better use by giving them an extra 30-60 minutes for lunch like the rest of us. They should be ashamed for asking.

Re: “Charges Dropped Against DA Weirich

No one is denying that Weirich hasn't done many good things. Unfortunately, she and her office has gotten caught doing several UNETHICAL things on their law practice over the past few years that should not go unpunished. When any person abuses their power, or allows their employees to do so, they rot the system they are trying to uphold. Letting Weirich off completely unpunished simply shows other attorneys that if they know the right people and grease enough elbows that they are above the law of the court.

Re: “Tennessee AG: Weirich Had No Knowledge of Secret Payment

Isn't that 3 murder convictions under Weirich that have gone under Federal review due to unethical prosecution? When will she be held accountable for the methods of the attorneys under her watch?

Re: “Help Envision a Post-Carbon Memphis

Memphis is in the process of bringing online a brand new natural gas plant. A "Carbon Free" city aint gonna happen in my life time.

Re: “No Child Transplant Patients Were Harmed as a Result of Memphis' #BLM Protest

I'd like to see a passionate Memphis horde regularly rally together to clean our communities, fight blight, take a stand against crime in our backyards, to strive for education and to support & respect our fellow neighbors. Just imagine what a community with such passion could do in our neighborhoods instead of on a bridge! Imagine what could happen if we Memphians could focus all that potential energy toward the true solution- MAKING our lives matter.

Re: “Memphis Airport Passenger Numbers on the Rise

Is it just me or does anyone else try to avoid going through Atlanta at all costs?
