  • Republican Dabbs presides over Bryant City Council meeting

You heard about it here first a couple of nights ago. Now the rumor is official. Bryant Mayor Jill “Republican” Dabbs tonight appointed State Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb as interim city attorney. Dabbs fired the previous city attorney, Nga Mahfouz, last week. (sorry, forced her resignation.) The mayor gave no reason for the ouster of a successful official who came to the city after municipal league experience.

Shelli Russell reports on Mysaline.com that Webb accepted — how nice of him — pay of $65,000 a year for 60 to 90 days. That means roughly $5,400 a month or $10,000 to $15,000 for Webb. The mayor said Webb will not be in the office 8-5 for that money. No, course not. He’ll be on KNUT (ARN) or doing other Republican mouthpiece work for which he is paid $90,000 a year. He will, of course, be continuing the extermination of political opposition in Saline County. He has experience in other areas of the law. Doing a little probate work for elderly ladies. Or straightening up personal foreclosure issues.
