Pretty strong commentary, still up on Valdosta Daily Times webpage. If I were the attorney on the Industrial Authority Board (Roy Copeland) I'd be more than a little concerned about how this is going to publicly play out.

And as one of the comments on the website of the Valdosta Daily Times reads:

"This is just another example of how "the good ole boys" conduct business in town. An Industrial Authority that stonewalls citizens as they attempt to exercise their right to request open records, indicating they have something to hide; a county commission led by a Chairman who has no respect for the First Amendment, as again witnessed by the decision to push the “citizens wishing to be heard” section all the way to the end of their meetings; city council members, who for months have been ignoring questions by the very citizens that have elected them, as again experienced at the most recent meeting. It is time for a change!

We demand transparency. We demand that questions of citizens will be answered in a timely fashion. We demand that the make-up of the Industrial Authority, the Lowndes County Commission, and the City Council be changed, so that our city and county governments may again be of the people, by the people and for the people."

That pretty much sums it up!
