To the editor:
I, too, am concerned with the nondisclosure agreement and the exclusion of two of the City Council members and key personnel from the negotiations. Once again it is obvious that L-3 has given Reid his marching orders, which he is following to the letter.
Let’s take a look at this negotiation team. All but Dr. Perks are bought and paid for by L-3. His voice will be negated by Reid and his “yes”-man team. By leaving key council members like Dan Perkins, Velma Del Bosque-Hobdy, the city manager and the Public Works director, who are neither bought nor paid by L-3 but who will work in the best interests of the city, and who have proven they are not mouthpieces for L-3, you have L-3 negotiating with L-3.
Greenville, I wouldn’t get my hopes up for a lease agreement which will benefit your city, your schools, your hospital or your county; for L-3 is in negotiations with themselves for this lease agreement.
Greenville, we need to keep the City Charter as is; for it should be a super majority vote when it comes to the positions of city manager, city secretary and city attorney. The super majority of Greenville should be represented by our council members who have been elected by us. And I am sure that David Dreiling, who is chairman of the Board of Trustees of GEUS, no longer wants the city attorney to be the attorney of record so that now the city will no longer have any say in what he and his board do.
When the next elections come around, we better vote for someone who loves Greenville and will work in its best interests, not someone who will sell themselves for 30 pieces of silver. As George Bailey from “It’s a Wonderful Life” would say, “We have to have someone to stand up to Potter,” aka L-3.

Vote for new Y
I write to support the YMCA bond election from a perspective of the role they provide in the health of our community. As a health care professional, I have long understood and supported the need and development of a comprehensive Health and Wellness Center which could serve not only as a fitness center and playground, but as a cornerstone for building and maintaining healthy bodies and lifestyles.
We would like to say we are in full agreement and support Randy Daw’s article in last Friday’s paper concerning the issue of homosexuality.
In support of new Y
A number of Greenville citizens have asked if we can afford a new YMCA. After many years of being a part of the Y, I think the question is, can we afford not to build a new YMCA?
Examine the facts
In response to the editorial published by the Herald-Banner on April 28 stating that the staff believes more time is required before an informed decision can be made on the issuance of public bonds for a new YMCA and Event Center…
Proven for the job
It has come to my attention that Tyson Cox has declined a candidate’s forum with Dan Perkins sponsored by GEUS. The forum was to be broadcast on their network.
Make a difference
I’d like to voice my support for the YMCA and Event Center that is on the ballot as Proposition 2.
Take a step back and imagine what a “better Greenville” looks like to you.
Vote for new Y
My wife, Marilyn, and I want to encourage the citizens of Greenville to vote in support of the YMCA project.
Cox good choice
I was born and raised in Greenville and have lived here most of my life, except for the two years my husband, Perry M. Smith, was in dental school and the two years he practiced dentistry in West Texas.
We don’t often write letters to the editor and even more rarely endorse political candidates. But we could not pass up the opportunity to offer our wholehearted endorsement for Tyson Cox.
