After reading District 3 Supervisor Lee McMinn’s column in the June 15th paper, I have a few things to say to him.
Gaylon Gray governs more than just the “Badlands”– which isn’t so bad. A “super nice” man, like Gaylon, does indeed come from that area.
Gaylon may be the life of the party at many gatherings, but that’s better than being a stick in the mud any day. His underestimated intelligence allows him to do his job well. A good supervisor, Gaylon, listens to his constituents and businesses (sometimes by requesting opinions via his Facebook page) and does what he feels is best. Instead of talking down about your citizens, it wouldn’t hurt to take a few of Gaylon’s attributes and poll your voters on how they feel.
With this smoking ban, your statement of “I’m not telling anyone they can’t smoke,” is false. The ban states that smoking is prohibited within 25 feet of the entrance of a business or inside the business, whether it’s publicly owned or PRIVATELY owned.
With your Water Valley-or-nothing attitude, not seeking another term as supervisor is likely a wise move, though column writing may not be your expertise either. So, with that being said, take a little advice from the South-enders and leave us “the hell alone!”
