BOCC travel policy simmers during meeting

The requesting of Williams’ records was questioned during Tuesday’s regular bi-monthly meeting by his father, Bill

Williams, Jr.

Williams was at the podium to discuss drainage and mosquito issues in Overstreet when he began to talk about the need for commissioners to set aside specific meeting time to rebut “attacks” from the community, naming Jim Garth, Tom Semmes and the political action committee Citizens Improving Gulf County.

“There is a morality problem going on that is harmful,” Williams said. “You have the right to defend yourself.”

Bryan asked whether the meeting was the appropriate setting to attack citizens when Williams questioned her about her requests for records concerning his son’s travel.

“I will look at any information on any issue relating to spending,” Bryan said. “That was all the request for numbers was about.

“It has nothing to do with your son. It is about investment of dollars that belong to the people of the county and the best use of those dollars. Your son was doing a lot of the travel. We need to see the investment we are making is bringing a bang.”
