Tommy Craig Power Play, Pt II, Also Fails

 So at the last BOC meeting JC Henderson once again attempted to interject caustic, former county attorney - Wm Thomas "Tommy" Craig, Esq, - into the body politic of the home county. 

Once again, it failed. 

The situation was as follows. 

Funds from the American Rescue Plan Act have been on the forefront of the minds of many, especially BOC 3 Rep Alana Sanders. In fact, she got state rep Sharon Henderson to address the BOC a while back in order to convince the county to release these funds into Sanders' control because - paraphrasing - a woman know how to get it done!

Fast forward to this past Tuesday & JC Henderson threw up his second Hail Mary in as many weeks & made a motion to allocate $10 million of these funds to be distributed by whom?

You guessed it. The one & only Tommy Craig. 

Once again, Henderson ended up withdrawing his motion. 

At this point, I think Tommy's like Gollum.

He's got the old office on College Ave fixed up real nice & apparently he's at least sort of fixed things up w/ the IRS (#thanksEzell) but seemingly that's not enough. 

He needs his Precious! 

He needs more of your tax money. 

And for the record, I think he kinda looks like him.  

Just another day in the home county, folks.

P.S. Apparently the official minutes of the Newton BOC meetings do NOT include motions that are withdrawn. 

P.P.S. Alana Sanders = JC Henderson = Tommy Craig
