She’s not happy that the other four Commisssioners called a special meeting of the City Commission on Monday, July 6th and met without her. At that meeting they voted unanimously to name Andy Wright as the new city judge.
The Mayor blasted the other Commissioners AND City Manager Randy Robertson a the regular meeting on Monday July 13th. Acording to stories in The Chronicle and The Mt. Juliet News, she charged that the Commission AND the City Manager had been “meddling” with the City Court and stated that she was “offended as a lawyer.”
City Manager Robertson shot back at the Mayor, “Some of the things you said are wrong.”
Later, he charged that Mayor Elam had “thrown down the gauntlet.”
Since the Mayor’s vote for or against Andy Wright as the new City Judge would not have made a difference, why was she so incensed?
Anyone have any ideas?
