Long-time radio personality Julious McGruder, a veteran of activist politics in Phillips County, denounced the new administration Sunday morning on his radio program. On the early Sunday morning talk show, McGruder attacked the new Mayor for failing to keep early promises and expressed dissatisfaction with some of Willis's early personnel decisions. Both are believed to have had brushes with law enforcement agencies.
Contacted by phone, McGruder said, "You just don't promise something and then not deliver."
The City Council will meet on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 6 pm.
