Finding praise for Jonesboro mayor

To the editor:

Are not elected officials supposed to be concerned for the many rather than the few?

Our mayor, Joy Day, has gone through hell trying to do what is obviously the best and cheapest for the citizens of Jonesboro in regard to the Clayton city firemen.

It takes courage to do what is right when there is strong opposition - and it is common knowledge that people who do not do anything are never criticized.

Surely, surely, surely it is evident that Mayor Day has done more for the city than any mayor in the past 100 years.
