It's Stokes.

He makes a good start BUT doesn't quite go all the way.

I 'clicked here to read more', but they ain't no mo. Kennuff is not a team player. The very definition of 'committee' implies team effort, comraderie, group work, meeting with and respecting the opinions of others.

What's up with the Kenster?

Why?

Which taxpayer funded entity is he going to work for now?

you can laugh at stokes, and for good reason, but he has some reason for doing this that will benefit him. he is a rare combination of being really stupid, but a sly politician at the same time.

Guess he doesn't get paid enough; just like skipping work sessions (where he should ask questions and receive briefings). and then making the Council meeting much longer than it should be by asking questions.

So what does this mean? How about a explanation or is KF lazy?

Give him and Rita more time for Boom-Boom.

Quit playing your readership KF. Part of your "I know but they don't" shit. Gets old.

Many years ago I was told by a then member of the City Council that Kenny told him that he would not attend any meetings that were not going to be on television. I guess this proves him correct.

Kingfish said...

It is pretty clear. He refuses to serve on any committees any longer. Period. Now if he would only resign from the seat. Fat chance of that happening.

Gets his money for nuthin.........

Those of you who think Kennuff is stupid are reading him wrong. You are probably basing your opinion on his public persona. He is a skillful politician who knows how to get and keep votes. The crap you see him do is mostly for show. He is a black Bilbo. He knows how to use showmanship to further his political goals.

He CAN'T resign from the seat. He's STUCK IN the seat. They'd have to cut him out of it.

The rest of the council should pass an ordinance that ties pay to participation. Count how many council meetings and committee meetings a council person should be attending and pay them based on the % of the time they are there and participating.
If such a thing were passed it would be difficult for the Mayor to refuse to sign it. Kenny might still refuse any committee work, but at least his pay would be cut if he did.

The real problem is the voters in his ward. They are so poorly informed or care so little, that they keep reelecting him. When Kenny is dead and gone many of those voters will still be around casting stupid votes. The same thing could be said about Oboma voters - as bad a problem as Oboma is, the bigger problem is that despite how awful his first term was, he was reelected. And those people can still vote. As the saying goes 'You can't fix stupid'.

Some of you seem to think he has resigned. He has not. He only announced that he has no intention of, or need to, serve on committees. Why should he? He gets no votes from committee participation. Committee participation requires that he allow his time and movement to be controlled by others. He has to maintain some sort of calendar and observe appointments and schedules if he's on committees. He doesn't need a committee assignment to sit atop his mountain and bloviate. His district has no clue what a committee is - and his district is all he needs to keep that check and gratuities rolling in.

Oboma? Go to bed, 1:09 AM.... you can't spell.
Be careful, you are starting to look like those stupid voters you described.

Messick said...

1:09,
It didn't help that the media were playing goal-tender, cheerleader, and apparatchik. Quite the sad times we live in when it's come to that.


2:42,
The author of the comment in question may be on a mobile device. Just ease off the trigger...

Thank you Kingfish! I haven't found a single mention of this in the mainstream media. Clarion-Ledger is too busy rewriting copy from the TV stations and devoting space to self-serving press releases if the TV stations don't report it, it doesn't get into print.

And when the voters themselves are dead and gone they will still be voting Democratic :-)

Plain and simple: everyday for Stokes is like his senior year in high school. He does what he needs to get by and has a hell of a time doing it. Winning

I'm not familiar with an apparatchik. Does this mean I'm stupid and need to go to bed?

If these committee meetings included a buffet.......now that would be a different story.

Anonymous said...

Politics aside at this time, I hope his families medical issues are soon resolved and everyone makes a speedy recovery.

Anonymous said...

Ha 11:04! I couldn't agree more. Throw in a buffet & a microphone & he suddenly becomes all about "the people."

Anonymous said...

So, let recap; Stokes won't play nice and be on any committees in the future, is absent more than present for meetings, and when he does show up, he is obstinate. Typical of Stokes-give me the money, give me the benefits, but don't expect me to actually perform my duties in return. Kinda like that squatter in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, huh?

Anonymous said...

I saw the TV story where Stokes discussed all the health issues in his family and what he is dealing with. We all face that as we grow older with our family members. However, the rest of us don't have the luxury of telling the "boss" we're not going to do large parts of our job because we have a lot going on. He would do Ward 3 a favor by resigning.......today! (I've owned a home in Ward 3 for almost 30 years..........I do have a dog in this hunt and he ain't happy).

Anonymous said...

4:39 give me a break. No one in his entire ward can write an eloquent post as you just did. BS call!! No "grammo's" at all.

BS.

Anonymous said...

OK 5:19.......you got me...sort of. I have owned the home for almost 30 years......didn't say I still lived there.

Anonymous said...

4:39, that's mighty white of you. You are such a bigoted snob. Is that correct grammar? I live in Ward 3, but I graduated from Ole Miss, so you will have to forgive my grammar. I can almost tolerate a bigot because I know this is Mississippi and some parents teach it to their kids while teaching the alphabet, BUT a snob just makes me puke.

I agree, 11:38. Black "parents" routinely teach their kids from an early age to "hate whitey". Kinda like other races do. You know, the Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Lebanese, etc. They never came to the USA and assimilated and made something of their lives here, because "whitey" was keeping them down. SMH.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
