Mayor Richard Thomas again has over stepped his boundaries and wants to censor the information that the publics see and hears about his information. Mayor Thomas only wants journalists and media outlets that write stories favorable to his administration. His latest act of communism is the illegal implementation of a press policy that states that his office must approve the person allowed to cover events in City Hall.
Such actions violate the United States Constitution. Mount Vernon Exposed Publisher Samuel L. Rivers said the policy is aimed directly at him for exposing Richard Thomas’ federal felon crack dealing campaign manager for having a no show job. The video of Ms. James signing in and leaving City Hall on Monday, March 10, 2016 went viral and received over 16K views.
Such an action was not approved by the Mount Vernon City Council.
