Nice Work If You Can Get It

The Madison County Board of Supervisors voted Monday to hire Lord Snow for monitoring federal legislation. The Madison County Solons will pay $12,500 per month for the year to Lord Snow.  The contract and video of what can be loosely called a discussion are posted below.  The vote to approve the contract was unanimous.

That is crazy. They will assign some legal assistant $20/hour to track legislation which is all available online.

Can you say quid pro quo?

Well Madison has to do something!! If BS gets angry and moves out of that behemoth of a structure, then who will occupy it?

So now MadCo is paying little Phil transition fees at $200/hour AND paying new hire Espy. . Also paying Snow. Good time to be a lawyer with a friend on the BoS. Pay a lawyer or pave a road?

That's a bargain. They charge me $10 grand a month to monitor Walmart sales.

Something smells about that arrangement! Will the supervisors get office space at BS?

If you idiots in Banks district would get out and vote, then this wouldn't happen. Especially the handful of white libtards in Lake Caroline who voted for him because he's a Dem. County politics are not always about party.

And of course, without Steen, none of this can happen. Ridgeland voters suck!

Great idea
Minimal outlay for huge rewards for all citizens of Madison
Jackson needs to do the same as its infrastructure decay is more advanced

Good luck people

$150,000 a year to monitor legislation? You could hire a lawyer right out of school for HALF that amount and devote them to nothing but. Unbelievable waste.

"That is crazy. They will assign some legal assistant $20/hour to track legislation which is all available online. Can you say quid pro quo"? This what the Blackmon's did when ruling Canton telling their flunkies Truly, McNiel and the Aldermen/women how business would be done.

Mississippi is a debtor nation.

Mississippi gets more federal dollars per capita than any other state.

Mississippi should actually be cut into 3 separate areas and given to adjoining states.

Since that won’t happen ^ then we need to get as much $ as we can from the federal government because Mississippi will never be able to afford to pay for itself. Jackson can’t pay 1 billion for new infrastructure. The Federal government has to assist because citizens of Mississippi will soon face serious health issues related to water / sewer not just in Jackson but all over.

Spend the money to get money from DC.

What is going to FUNNY at S*** Is when Steen pisses off Banks and Griffin!! Wait for it!
In the meantime Steen sits between then with the big head, smart mouth and the woman hater he is proud of seeing $12,500 a month of the taxpayers money to Bob Clark and crew for probably NOTHING.

Steen was warned in advance and Espy was with him at the Meeting w/ BS

It’s Don Clark....not Bob Clark.

You may be mad at the wrong guy?

BS holds its self out as a law firm. but this is not in any way a contract for legal services.read paragraph 2 of the contract entitled SERVICES. this is nothing but hiring lobbyists to see how much money BS can wring out of the legislature and the feds for madison county. BS is nothing but a bunch of lobbyists dressed up at a law firm.

Well, It's not legal to pay severance to government employees and government contractors in Mississippi, so they had to come up with a way to ease her off into the stratosphere without pissing Daddy off. Never know where or when Feel might surface.

This is a Joke.This is not the way to get Federal money and grants.

You Attny Snell haters.
She offered a transition contract out of professionalism and courtesy. Isn't that the way it should happen? You can bet there would not have even been a vote if Steen had not agreed to bring it forward.
The current board didn't have to approve it, they did. What is wrong with that?
If she is needed in the first 6 weeks, she should be paid. Would you work for free?

She has enough to do in her own private firm without billing Mad Co and most likely won't miss some of the BS, back stabbing, two faced, corruption in Mad Co leadership.
I know I wouldn't.
So we wait - Now let's see how much Federal Funding the County gets.

What is the "way" to get Federal Money and Grants?

I can’t wait until they all piss the wrong people off and wind up in the federal penitentiary. They are headed in the right direction; just wait and see!

Memphis, just across the state line to the north, is a bigger ghetto than Jackson. Alabama is . . . Alabama. Louisiana is already a two-nation state. And Arkansas . . . well, Arkansas may be OK.

@7:02
I would agree with that.

I don’t think previous commenters are saying Snell wouldn’t get paid for work, but that BoS are paying a lot for lawyers these days. Interesting that the “conservative $guy” left the room for the vote...

Yes that’s correct.

And none of them is last in everything or as big a debtor nation state.

It’s not hard to envision a scenario whereby the state is split to maximize the benefits for all.

(Memphis is not a state by the way)

"She has enough to do in her own private firm without billing Mad Co.." Tell us more about her private firm.

Can you see Espy asking her to transition him into something? He considers her a 'junior talent' at best, someone who should have been under his wing in on-job-training. And he might be correct.

Happy Monday, Just had a conversation with the opponent of Gerald Steen in the next Supervisor election!
Just so all you who love your 3 amigos are in the know.

Read sections 4 & 5. The $12,500/mo will not be the end of it. It is strictly a retainer fee to "monitor". Once they fins something they can start working on getting whatever it is they find and then Butler Snow will bill(at their rate) for work preformed over and above the "monitoring". This will end up costing way more than $150,000.

Anonymous said...

Do you people expect Butler Snow to work for free? This is a typical fee agreement. Get over it.

Anonymous said...

Steens wishes. All of this is What STEEN wants.
Bank/ Griffin and Steen wanted ESPY.
Good Lord MC taxpayers are so screwed.
Watch for the first billing by Espy on the next agenda.
GET YOUR WHISKEY!

9:58 AM - Hey, Don Clark, glad to see you join in the blog! It is NOT a typical fee agreement. It's a typical Lord Snow agreement. Hidden clauses to bring in the REAL dollars. Down the road, this will cost Madison County BIG BUCKS and will make bigger bucks for Lord Snow from other clients through this "monitoring" agreement. We'll never know the real wealth this will bring to the evil empire.

@11:38, what is the source of your information? FYI this is not Mr. Clark.

Can you say "In your Face!" That is what Steen, Banks and Griffin are doing to the people of Madison County. I agree that we had some people that sat on their happy ass and did not go vote and some that drank the Banks and Steen "Koolaid". But those of us that care about Madison County have to suffer for their short comings. The three of them are as crooked as they come and they don't care if you know it. Steen has mastered the "back room" deal perfectly. They even said he met with them and had the deal tied up before it even came to the board for approval. He just had to make one stop on the way to Canton to drop his little brown envelope off at the house!

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.

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.
