    Can anyone keep their hands in their own pockets? The Mayor was accused & beat the rap but the money is still missing. Pappy Davis died, so he can tell us nothing. The vendors have receipts but the City Council don’t have the money & now Dorien is accused of having sticky fingers. You guys are making civil servants look bad….
