Dear Editor,



As I sit in my suburban Dallas home and follow the antics of members of the Gulf County BOCC, I ask myself… what the HELL is going on!!!!



Let me assure you I am no carpetbagger, I have owned property and paid taxes in Gulf County for going on six years now. Needless to say, I have got a dog in this hunt.



Time after time, I watch in amazement as Commissioner Bryan is the brunt of systematic and well-planned out personal attacks. Seems like that Commissioner McLemore feels Commissioner Bryan does not have the mental or educational capacity to have a view on county issues.



I suppose that Commissioner McLemore feels that women should be home baking pies and changing diapers, rather than being part of the process in making our community a better place to live.



Sadly, even worse than Commissioner McLemore's dogmatic attacks on the ONLY female Commissioner is the cowardly refusal of Commissioner Smiley to stop these personal attacks.



Commissioner Smiley is the Board Chair, and is responsible for allowing these personal attacks to continue.



My question to Commissioner Smiley is, how would you feel if as a black person you were systematically attacked only because you were black?



Commissioner Smiley you're a leader, start acting like one!



As for Commissioner McLemore, you might be shocked to know that women are Medical Doctors, Police Chiefs, fly multimillion dollar fighter aircraft in our military. They fight and die for our freedom, and you need to show respect for that.



In Texas we call them as we seem them.



Commissioners Smiley and McLemore, you are cowards and bullies.
