Digital divide

When Anderson County told residents not to assemble in groups with more than 10 people, officials got some pushback from churches. County Judge Robert Johnston said that was partly because residents wanted to meet on Sundays like they always have, but it was partly because they don’t have a way to meet online. “A lot of this county has no internet service,” he said.

In response to Joe Southern’s opinion article

You stated “Jennifer Sullivan took it upon herself to make budget amendments.” That is false. One council member cannot “make budget amendments.” I prepared a RECOMMENDATION suggesting budget cuts to avoid dipping into reserves by $860,000 to balance the budget. The city council UNANIMOUSLY approved the suggested budget cuts with revisions. The city manager had the opportunity to raise objections or make changes to the suggestions, but did not do so. City council was in total agreement.
