Commissioners Lowery and McCarty Cannibalize Pct. 4

LIBERTY, January 10, 2015 – Item 18 on the Commissioners Court Agenda reads, “DISCUSSION AND TAKE ACTION UPON THE COMPLETION OF AN
ELECTION, AN OUTGOING ELECTED OFFICIAL MAY NOT BUY, SELL
AND/OR DISCARD ANY MACHINERY, EQUIPMENT, VEHICLES, OFFICE
EQUIPMENT, SUPPLIES, OFFICE RECORDS AND/OR PAPERWORK UNLESS
IT IS APPROVED BY THE CURRENT COMMISSIONERS IN A POSTED
COMMISSIONERS COURT MEETING - PCT.#4.”

Lame duck Commissioner Norman Brown just before leaving office, being mad and bitter after his loss to Commissioner Leon Wilson decided to take a shot at his successful opponent and limit his ability to do the job for his Pct. 4 residents selling several items of equipment including a truck and trailers in order to leave his opponent little equipment to do his job.

According to sources Brown contacted Commissioners Mike McCarty and Eddie Lowery and sold the equipment to them at bargain basement prices.

Why didn’t McCarty or Lowery tell Brown that they would possibly be interested in buying the equipment once Wilson took office and determined that he did not need the equipment any longer.

No. Instead Lowery and McCarty cannibalize the equipment of Pct. 4 leaving them in short supply indicating there was no interest in working together for the benefit of the county and have left Commissioner Pct. 4 in Dayton without what is needed to do the work.

Brown destroys his own Pct. 4 to get back at his opponent and Commissioners McCarty and Lowery help him do it. The citizens of Pct. 4 get the short end of the stick in this deal orchestrated by Commissioner Norman Brown.

This is County Government at it’s best. Just a case of Norman Brown's sour grapes, still on the vine.

Let’s see how it works out at Commissioners Court on Tuesday.
