Michael “Mike” West, City Manager, Dothan, Alabama, Awarded Donald J. Trump “Law and Order” Candidate of the Year Award for 2016 (Rickey Stokes)

I have awarded Dothan, Alabama, City Manager Mike West, the Donald J. Trump “Law and Order” Candidate of the Year Award for 2016, for his decision to take the LAW into his own hands and ILLEGALLY use Executive Action to specially appoint judge Carl Chamblee, Jr. to handle the case of Rickey Stokes

Please join me in recognizing Mike West and his effort to help keep Dothan, Alabama, as the CORRUPTION Capitol of the CONfederacy
