Ward 7 Alderman Henry Vaughn broke into a lengthy public comments section during Tuesdayâ€™s Board of Aldermen meeting at Starkville City Hall to publicly admonish citizens who spoke critically of the board.
Vaughnâ€™s comments came shortly after comments from former alderman Mary Lee Beal that criticized, among other things, the process the board underwent to advertise for its vacant police chief position. Beal claimed the board didnâ€™t search broadly enough for the right candidate, as it only advertised locally for the position, and she said she believed that happened because aldermen had already made up their minds and were â€śjust going through the motionsâ€ť for formalityâ€™s sake.
