  3. I see how many of you are chrisian by your comments. How about helping those who have lost it all. You all love going there, but not willing to help them when they need you the most.

      A concern about spending public money from a financially struggling small community to fund a trip to see how we can help a foreign country is a valid concern. The measure of someone’s love, compassion or Christianity should not be measured by their willingness to spend the city’s money, that has already been designated for needs we have here. The Christians willingness to help financially would best be directed through the church or personal giving through some other disaster relief organization.

  4. Richard Webster you have been a strong political voice and a pillar in the City of Clarksdale for many years, but to hear you speak about the current city’s administration the way you do is sad. Makes me glad I left.

  5. Question for Delta Daily News: where did you get info about a small group of city employees traveling with the mayor to the Bahamas?
