|Ferriday Council overrides veto; will pay former mayor's legal fees|
The Ferriday Board of Alderman voted Tuesday night to override Mayor Glen McGlothin's veto to pay $129,000 in legal fees for former mayor Sammy Davis Jr.
Alderman Somer Lance voted against overriding the veto, while Elijah "Stepper" Banks, Gail Pryor, Johnnie Brown and Gloria Lloyd voted for it.
"The only thing I can say is that we have bills we have to pay that are going to be harder to pay once we do this,' said Ferriday Mayor Glen McGlothin.
Davis' legal fees were incurred after he was indicted in 1990 on three counts of malfeasance in office and one count of injuring public records. The state Supreme Court later overturned the conviction on a technicality.
Lloyd made the motion at a previous meeting to pay the fees in four equal payments of $32,250 anually over a four-year period commencing on August 1, 2011.
The state Attorney General's office previously informed the town that it could pay the bill, but must be fiscally responsible.
McGlothin and Town Attorney Anna Ferguson said they have not seen an itemized bill regarding the fees.
