Kinda has a nice ring to it, don''t ya think? After 20-plus years as a Lowndes County Supervisor, he deserves it! Why not vote for Mr. Brooks to be the new president of the Lowndes County Board of Supervisors? Mr. Brooks should demand that he be voted in as the new president! If they don''t vote for him as Board president, then he should sue (then settle for a raise and a chunk of cash). 

 

He says he doesn''t want to be the president, and I can clearly understand why. In all of these 20-plus years, he has been free to constantly agitate any of the board''s presidents when things don''t go his way. He has been able to be as disruptive as he''s been, because he could portray himself as "a hero to the poor folk of his district" and the county in general. He has never wanted to be the board president because then he would be held accountable for his childish antics. Does anyone see this differently?
