I think Vollmer has a point.
Warren Dorris responded to Vollmer's comments: "Let me defend the city. We did get a lot of money from riverboat gaming. What did we do with it? We cut our property tax 42%, we eliminated city stickers, we built a west side library, we helped build a ballpark, we did some wonderful things. We gave most of the money back to the citizens. And right now we have some issues. No one saw the downturn coming in 2008. No one. We did have a reserve. Why did we have a reserve? Because we put the money away. It's easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, but it's not time to turn this city over to someone who's a trainee. We need people who really know the system, who can put a plan together, and make change. We spent the money. Where did we spend it? We gave most of it back. We've got issues now, we need to come together and address them."
