Gretchen stood up against an unnecessary lawsuit

“Stop wasting taxpayer money” said Gretchen Quarterman in the May 28th 2013 Regular Session of the Lowndes County Commission.

Gretchen Quarterman I sort of wish that I had been able to observe the executive session where you discussed the pending lawsuit against Deep South Sanitation. I wonder who asked the question “Is it beneficial to all concerned?” I wonder which one of you said “This will really attract people to start or relocate business in our county when we sue one of our local business owners.”

I ask that you drop the lawsuit and stop wasting taxpayer money. Thank you.

[Applause]
