Public Records Karma

The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet has it as their lead website story:

‘Smyrna Nine’ hire attorney, demand answers

The Mt. Juliet News has it featured prominently as well:

City employees back from trip to Smyrna to ask about Sorey investigation; filed open records requests

Seems that City Manager Randy Robertson and six Mt. Juliet employees paid a visit to the Smyrna Airport Authority on Monday seeking answers… and public records. Mr. Robertson and the rest of the Smyrna Nine appear frustrated that their public records requests have taken so long to be fulfilled – and that some things they have requested have yet to be produced.

We are sympathetic. We know how frustrating it can be when public officials ignore requests for public records. And we agree that it is outrageous when a public official withholds documents that are clearly public records.

This is quite entertaining.

    What goes around comes around…..I guess they didn’t feel the forms out in triplicate, stamp them identically on all three pages, submitted by your first cousin……..

    The only thing missing from that article was Randy laying on the floor, kicking his feet and throwing a fit, or holding his breath until he was blue. FINALLY – the shoe’s on the other foot, and he doesn’t seem to like it. Reminds me of a scene from a great movie:
    “I want something done!!!”
    – Charlie Cheswick, “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” 1975
