Smithville aldermanic board members Gayla Hendrix, Josh Miller and Danny Washer were among those voting unanimously to censure Mayor Jimmy Poss for violating the city's nepotism policy.
The Smithville aldermanic board voted unanimously to censure Mayor Jimmy Poss this past week, agreeing that he violated the city’s nepotism policy by hiring his son to work at the golf course. “We all like Mayor Poss,” said Alderman Gayla Hendrix in leveling charges of nepotism against the mayor who was not present for the special called meeting last Thursday evening. “This was a direct violation of our nepotism policy.”
