Dear Editor,

Something big is coming. I want to thank Michelle Jones for her boldness, not wavering or giving up, she kept on until she got to address the mayor and city council about her being made to move out of the Russell duplexes with four others.

What has happened to Alex City? The past administration was about taking their time to get it right. This administration is moving ahead regardless of who is in the way, make them move with short time with nowhere to go.

Michelle Jones is a disabled Marine who wanted to air her story the same night they voted to buy the Russell sales building. The courtroom was full of people that didn’t want it but three of them voted anyway.

After hearing her testimony, I see several violations that were violated against her. There are consequences for your actions. You don’t have to go along to get along. I see how the mayor treats councilwomen Buffy Colvin but she has tough skin. She knows the city is in more debt than the citizens can pay.

There is something coming down the pipe and it’s not a big job either.

Editor’s note: The Alexander City City Council voted 4-2 on Jan. 7 to buy the property the sales office and the duplexes sit on. The city has not bought the property yet.
