This is so wrong! As big as the city of Anderson is!? The mayor is not using his head on this issue! He's over looking the safety of it's people's safety! For the sake of money! I'm glad I don't live their!

My husband is a police officer (which is going to be affected by this layoff as well). It is a shame that the beautification of Anderson is more important than these families and lives that are being ruined by this horrific layoff. These are hard working people and most function on only one primary income. I ask you to join us in fighting for these jobs this Thursday at the meeting! Message me or Kristian Henderson Grant if you are interested!

I do not understand how the City of Anderson would EVER vote Kevin Smith back in office...he is doing nothing to help this town. All he has done Is fire many people that did not deserve it. I really hope his trip to China will inspire him to stay there and share is commonality of the short man syndrome. He will fit right in. This town does not need that kind of leadership.

I agree, Another trip to China!! That is money better spent here. There is a thing called Skype. Many business meetings are done through Skype. If he wanted to save this town some money use the technology he has, unless he does'nt know how to use it which is possible. I have heard nothing positive since he has been in office but I do hear everyday how someone else has been let go. And I do mean everyday. I have several friends that work for this city and they have been walking on egg...

I have several friends that work for this city and they have been walking on egg shells since he took office. I am not a big political person but I know when someone is doing his job for this town and its not Kevin Smith. Do you know how many companies in the USA he could try to recruit to Anderson? But no, he has to go overseas. Thats what is wrong with the whole country we need to use what we have here at home.
