"SAVE SEMMES" website was last updated back in April of
This was after the incorporation of the City of
From that point on, most of the information regarding Semmes
was updated on the City's website.
(July 2016) feel the need to go back to our roots
- where we originally started -
before "incorporation" became the topic of
before "The City of Semmes" came into existence.
That is a very easy question to answer --
wanted to "SAVE SEMMES" from becoming a part of
the City of Mobile
wanted a voice in our future. Semmes has its own
unique and individual character and charm. We didn't
want to lose that.
is our home - our families, our neighbors and our friends
live here. Our children go to school here. We go
to church here.
of the most important reasons we did not want to become Mobile
is we didn't want the "politicians" making decisions
for us. We didn't like "politicians" because we
were just regular people. We didn't want a government
breathing down our back making laws regarding every facet of our
lives. We wanted "limited" government and
wanted a local government that was ran in a clean and ethical
We wanted an efficient government - not one full of
We didn't want a local government that would spend every dime
that was brought in or one that would mortgage us into debt.
We wanted a conservative, accountable government.
We wanted the local representatives of our City to truly love
we got part of our dream - one of the major players in the
incorporation became our mayor - and she truly loves our
City and our Community and has our best interest at heart.
We also got a Council who is power hungry, divisive, hateful,
jealous and lazy.
have a Council who not only cast stones, accuses and tries to
condemn the only person of the group (the Mayor) who is actually
working to accomplish the goals of the citizens, they are racist
(even out loud during Council Meetings), discriminatory toward
women (as evident in the actions of rudely interrupting and
talking over the Mayor - a woman - and the one other woman on
the Council - Place #4), and borderline anti-Semitic as
demonstrated by comments made during a City Council Meeting.
Council Member can't even remember (or read from the Agenda) the
name of the resolution the Council is discussing. He has
to ask several times and be reminded of the topic of discussion
when it is his turn to speak.
Council Member is so full of hate and jealousy that he even
tries to personally attack the Mayor by presenting ordinances
and resolutions to fine her up to $10,000 personall for each
instance of her doing her job. Her job, by the way,
is to enforce the ordinances (laws) passed by the Council.
So this one Council Member votes yes to approve a local law and
then wants to penalize the Mayor $10,000 for each time she
enforces the law.
Council Member running against the Mayor had his crony buddies
(other men Council Members) present a resolution for an increase
in pay for the next Council term... from $15,000 per year to
$60,000 per year! By the way, the current Mayor
takes no salary from the City of Semmes. She donates her
salary back to the City.
makeup of the Council is 4 men and 2 women (one of which is the
The average age of the Council is 68+ years.
The Council does not reflect nor represent the majority of the
age groups and citizens of the City of Semmes.
to a Council Meeting - see these jokers in action. It's
popcorn time :-)
