To the editor:
I, too, am concerned with the nondisclosure agreement and the exclusion of two of the City Council members and key personnel from the negotiations. Once again it is obvious that L-3 has given Reid his marching orders, which he is following to the letter.
Let’s take a look at this negotiation team. All but Dr. Perks are bought and paid for by L-3. His voice will be negated by Reid and his “yes”-man team. By leaving key council members like Dan Perkins, Velma Del Bosque-Hobdy, the city manager and the Public Works director, who are neither bought nor paid by L-3 but who will work in the best interests of the city, and who have proven they are not mouthpieces for L-3, you have L-3 negotiating with L-3.
Greenville, I wouldn’t get my hopes up for a lease agreement which will benefit your city, your schools, your hospital or your county; for L-3 is in negotiations with themselves for this lease agreement.
Greenville, we need to keep the City Charter as is; for it should be a super majority vote when it comes to the positions of city manager, city secretary and city attorney. The super majority of Greenville should be represented by our council members who have been elected by us. And I am sure that David Dreiling, who is chairman of the Board of Trustees of GEUS, no longer wants the city attorney to be the attorney of record so that now the city will no longer have any say in what he and his board do.
When the next elections come around, we better vote for someone who loves Greenville and will work in its best interests, not someone who will sell themselves for 30 pieces of silver. As George Bailey from “It’s a Wonderful Life” would say, “We have to have someone to stand up to Potter,” aka L-3.

What is rescue all about?
Rescue is a calling for most people.
Who are we backing?
It is amazing that President Obama, who only five years ago was the staunch anti-war (and anti-Bush) freshman Senator from Illinois, is now whole-heartedly throwing his support behind Syrian rebels to topple the Assad regime.
A big thank you
A huge THANK YOU to the many people who stopped by our booth at Rally Round Greenville.
Top notch crew
On Saturday morning, Sept. 14, I had a TIA. I was sure that was what it was because my right arm felt like lead.
Thank you for your help
It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville.
Medal finally awarded to Murphy
