Back in the day the Jackson Five sang “It’s Christmas all over the world”, today we’re again in the Christmas season and President Donald Trump is threating to shut down the federal government if he can’t get 5 billion dollars to build his famous wall. His fellow republicans are saying don’t do it we’re gonna get blamed for it. In last week meeting with Democratic leadership Trump boldly stateded he would take the blame for a shut down because it’s that important to get money for the wall. By the way any shut down will affect Homeland security’s ability to do it’s job along with many other agencys. Here in Jackson Mississippi a lot of residents are still struggling with high water bills, and some feared their service might be cut off during the holidays. Mayor Chokwe A. Lumumba had a press conference Monday afternoon to address what he called misnomers and misinformation provided at a press conference held over the weekend by Councilman Kenneth Stokes. the Mayor said “We do not have a system-wide collection process. We have made the strategic decision that we would not do that until we worked out the kinks in the system and we can assure one-hundred percent accuracy on those bills were giving individuals”. He went on to say that a decision was made to suspend cut offs so people wouldn’t be without water during the holidays.
