A Waste of Tax Money
16 July 2009
They are having some fruitless meetings, I asked for the minutes and got a summery. I took pages of notes and will use them. I am not sure if the city is deceptive or they do not understand what a public record is.
Jean Bryant of local spay neuter NPO (not HHFHC) called county residents “rednecks” she is a stumbling block. I just could not believe the way she flapped her arms around giving the entire meeting an adversarial tone. How crude to refer to the good citizens as rednecks . She also made statements about Terry M. Noble , D.V.M. and he was not there to defend himself. This was a very unjust tactic. Jean Bryant is also demanding mandatory sterilization of your pets . The Mayor balked at that. Who wants the government telling responsible pet owners to sterilize their pets? Especially legitimate breeders.
The Mayor and County executive had done some homework and I would have liked to heard what others had to say. Constantly Ms Bryant took over the conversation in a manic manner almost babbling incoherently. Jean Bryant never directly answered anything. The city gave her organization $2500. The county executive stood his ground and good for him . The police representative Coy Swanger kept emphasizing registration . He was the brightest and best. This registration is the first step to take. Not a blurb in the local paper on pet responsibility and how to handle a vicious dog.
I am going to be sick if another child gets mauled because of her tactics .
I was called away after an hour but doubt it got any better. So now they have an unworkable plan , with animal registration 3rd on the list when that must be first . You can’t enforce anything until you know who owns which dog or dogs .
Expect nothing to come of this, with the exception of Jean Bryant getting some cash from the taxpayers deep pockets.
Honestly watching Jean Bryant reminded me of the old film clips of Hitler.
Call the Mayor and ask him if Jean Bryant called county residents rednecks also ask the County Executive. I doubt they will lie for her. She sure does accept rednecks money so we must not be so bad .
I am asking that she be removed and that as long as she is running that NPO, no taxpayers monies be given to it. The term redneck is a bigoted stereotype. I do not mind being called a redneck but my children and relatives are county citizens also.
Jean Bryant is from the
THE ANIMAL WELFARE NETWORK OF EAST TENNESSEE
Not Helping Hands for Heaven’s Creatures who has done great things without taxpayers money.
I am not finished with the story but because I can not obtain the actual minutes I have to publish this from my notes.
The Next meeting will be Thursday august 20th at 6:00 pm.
