“Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” That famous quote was used by Troy resident and business owner Bryan Dozier as his parting words to Troy Mayor Sherri Allgood at Monday’s town board meeting. Dozier spoke to the board after recently learning he was being removed from the board of the Troy Housing Authority, a board he has served on for 25 years. 

Dozier began his remarks stating, “Folks if you are going to tape me that is fine, just make sure you show it all. Don’t cut anything out.” He went on to quote Winston Churchill, “When the eagles are silent the parrots start chattering,” before getting to his concern. “In keeping up with... in the local newspaper about some of the issues that have gone on up here, I know one of the things the mayor has said is that she feels that there is a lack of respect she is being given. I have been on the housing board for 25 years. During those 25 years we have redone Peabody properties, we have fixed the gym, we have built a new basketball court, we have put in playground equipment. I have made sure that while I was on the board that money was spent on the people that lived in those houses, not on salaries.
