  1. Kevin Small says:

    Mayor Tom can move some resources away from stop signs and assign them to patrol.
    Just saying.

  2. Chele Hicks says:

    Centerpoint and Roebuck have turned into a shithole

  3. “Mayor”tom won’t do a thing. He says repeatedly “there’s no crime in center point.”

  4. Center Point mayor & 5 council members said the City of Center Point couldn’t afford a police dept to protect residents, however, they chose to pay 1.5 MILLION to buy a church bldg close to Jeff State & that area is zoned City of Birmingham which is ranked 5th in crime in the U.S.. It appears the elected leaders believes instead of arresting teenagers going thru mailboxes, walking in the middle of Sunhill Rd daring drivers to hit them, teenagers with guns, drug addicts selling & buying on Polly Reed Rd close to the tea party house, thugs & criminals the mayor & council plans to CONVERT them.

  5. Myra Clem says:

    Funny , jus like in Tarrant they choose to over look the problems and it goes s8t bk to mayor!

  6. It is illegal for 15 and 16 yr olds to have a gun. I bet if guns were banned they wouldn’t have been able to get them, because they would have been illegal. #mylastsentenceissarcasm

  7. Geri Keefe says:

    Is that like a stinkhole??

  8. Sharon Mcclung Bahm you’re exactly right, he has repeatedly denied on numerous occasions that there is any crime in good old CenterPoint. Being that I’ve been a resident of CenterPoint for 21 of the 26 years of my life I beg to differ.

  9. Lisa Harvey remember when I told you that recently they moved my voting place from the Hilldale Church to the Jeff State Rec Center?. Well now II see why. He is electing to spend 1.5 million dollars of Centerpoint money. SMH

  10. Kevin Small says:

    1.5 million would go a long way towards establishing a police department or putting a whole squad of contract deputies to work.

  11. The mayor and council says we can’t afford a police department but for some strange reason we can afford the mayors wife’s million dollar Barbie dream house and a church for 1.5 million. A church that went down because the members were to afraid to go to it. Those running this city are corrupt. There needs to be an investigation into voter fraud and where all of our tax dollars are going b

  12. True Kevin but our council can’t get their heads out of mayor’s a$$ & work for the residents/businesses. A civic center doesn’t protect residents against crime & a civic centers doesn’t bring in new businesses or raise property values. In the past the mayor/coucil tried to buy The Cathedral of the Cross & New Covenant Church properties. The antique well, Senior Center & a lrg portion of land on Pinson Hghts Rd are in flood zones. Now the taxpayers were forced to pay upwards of a million dollars for the mayor’s wife to have her tea party house which the mayor/council didn’t require/obtain a written signed contracts with general contractors. What a convenient way for $$$ to disappear & hips to get larger. The city refuses to allow city books to be reviewed. There’s no thought, no consideration, no vision, no plans in their brains for the city or the residents. A civic center or a church bldg is not & should not be a top priority when the city is infested with crime & neighboring cities won’t’ trade in Center Point.
