MY TURN: Greg Davis is a selfish man

(WMC-TV) - Monday's news conference by Southaven Mayor Greg Davis was extremely disappointing.

Inexplicably, Davis refused to resign his position as mayor in spite of a mountain of evidence that he is no longer suited to hold this position.

We should not be surprised that Davis would act in this incredibly selfish manner, because it's apparent now that he has been behaving that way for years. He has demonstrated a total disregard for the value of the tax dollars paid by the people of Southaven, and he has apparently found other ways to line his pockets as well.

As if he has not done enough already, the mayor's decision not to resign will continue to harm Southaven in the months ahead. For example, the Department of Transportation has frozen funding for all new road projects because of the state auditor's investigation.

I'm sure he won't listen to me, but perhaps Mayor Davis still has some good friends he will listen to. If you happen to be one of them, please tell him to do the right thing and let Southaven move on.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
