DAN JORDAN CHANGES HIS RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE
AND MONTICELLO NEWS REMOVES PART OF HIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON THEIR WEBSITE AS WELL
January 24, 2017
Our recent blog on Dan Jordan’s retirement as Clerk of Court has caused quite a stir. Someone who has “no involvement” (according to them), has all the answers, and of course TWG doesn’t have their facts straight.
Read the blog comments (28 at this time) here:
It is so easy to tell the “truth” after you change your original post on Facebook, and have the newspaper change the article online. Dan Jordan originally posted, “No special election is called for.” It is right there on the front page of the Monticello News (1/19/17) where he announced his resignation. Now he has removed that sentence (once TWG put out the blog with the actual law stating there SHALL be an election), and Kathy Mudd confirmed that he called the Monticello News and asked them to remove it from their website as well.
Dan Jordan and Angie Steele have posted all sorts of things on their Facebook page about TWG and Mary Patrick, and of course how TWG is wrong, cost the county money, etc. Again, it is easy to make someone wrong after the information is changed. Honestly, we are shocked that Kathy Mudd would change the article on the newspaper website to perpetuate this farce.
According to the blog poster “that has no involvement”, there will be an election in November for SPLOST and City council and the Clerk of Court will be elected then, in a special election. The BOC has not called for a SPLOST election yet nor approved a SPLOST resolution; however, this uninvolved person states unequivocally that there will be a SPLOST election and that is when the Clerk election will be.
In addition, Dan Jordan has posted the following on his Facebook page this evening. What he was trying to say was……
Dan Jordan has now decided there will be an election—that is, he has decided to follow State Law, which is all that TWG pointed out.
Citizens, be informed and stay informed! Only by being informed, can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County. That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.
