Facebook Page Gets Few ‘Likes’ at Meeting

First Amendment rights in Lynnville collided with residents’ feelings about a Facebook page about the town, at an Aug. 2 meeting.

 

Mayor Bruce Vandiver said the town had nothing to do with the Lynnville Community Page, a subject which drew several people to the meeting regarding social media.

 

“This is not (part of) the town of Lynnville. The town puts no money into it,” he said. “We have got a real good town.”

 

“We don’t like it,” Vandiver said of some comments on the Lynnville Community Page.

 

Rickey Taylor, who is responsible for the Lynnville Community Page, was not at the meeting.

 

His attorney, Robert Dalton, issued a statement in which he said Taylor had actively promoted business and tourism in Lynnville by creating two Facebook pages.

 

Lynnville Community Page was intended to discuss problems and concerns of area residents, Dalton’s statement added.
