To continue the discussion being had below regarding Councilman Henderson's opinions on municipal training, we add his most recent response. This was published on Facebook on his official Councilman Group Page -- a group to which you must apply and for which he approves membership (guess who wasn't approved? No...no, really! Guess!!)
Here is what he said:
I'm getting slapped around pretty good elsewhere in the blogosphere over this post. Just to be clear (and I know you all know this)... I am not opposed to education, I am opposed to educators with agendas that are thinly veiled, and targeted at deceiving you and I, the taxpayer. Had this class been titled " How municipalities can do more with less", I'd have been all over it.
So the course offering of a municipal group that shares information to municipal leaders on how to pass municipal millages for which those leaders have deemed a need is a PLOY. It's an EVIL MACHINATION against humanity, and it offers up tactics to TRICK the unsuspecting residents who apparently cannot think for themselves in dire situations.
You know...situations in which their property tax revenue isn't covering their services...in cities with millages and revenue too low to cover those services...which sounds a lot like...HEY...LIKE TROY. Shocking!
Councilman Henderson is against THAT, but apparently not all forms of education. We wanted that to be made clear.
And for that we can be thankful.
