Mayor Ryshonda Beechem of Pelahatchie took to social media Friday regarding a rope found on a door in city hall.
She posted to Facebook, “This mysterious rope strangely appeared hanging on the break room door in the city hall this morning I just returned from MML on yesterday, so what do you think?”
WJTV 12’s Lanaya Lewis asked the mayor if she believes this was intentional or made for a scare tactic. She responded in a statement saying:
Given the turn of events since I became Mayor, unfortunately I do believe the rope hanging on the door was a scare tactic intended to intimidate me into resignation. This egregious behavior not only is the most recent attempt of many to create a hostile work environment for my staff and me, but also is a disgrace to the citizens of Pelahatchie and to the State of Mississippi.
No word yet if police are investigating this incident.
