I have to say that in college we had that motto. “any reason to have a party” ! That would seem to be the case here.
Hugh, however is going to miss this party for some news that for some ridiculous reason he feels is more significant than a gathering to try yo recall a Hall County commissioner named Craig Lutz. How naive of him. A Space Shuttle mission vs. a party to rally troops to sign to remove a county commissioner. PFFFFT.
I will be there, I wouldn’t miss this one for the world. That is if there are more than just a few monkeys sitting around blabbing about how they hate a guy. I am NOT sitting through that.
So you want to Vote Lutz off the island? OK. This web site won’t argue. In fact we will get on board… As soon as someone sends us or shows us some proof of wrong doing. Although we may not agree with his methods or even ideas, that is not enough to displace him or anyone else.
Everyone has an opinion. Some share the same opinion, but it is still just an opinion. I just have to wonder what the opinions are of the silent majority. I think that was clear during the last election. The majority opinion? Those that do not have time to follow the comments an the Times articles and those that don’t bother reading that rag. It is no secret that that paper is damn near controlled by a particular Commissioner, so getting unbiased news is all but impossible.
So on with the Recall Rally…
The beginning of the wishful end
We have already reported that recalls are almost an impossible task. There is, however, a hard headed crew here in Hall County reportedly meeting this weekend to put together their recall committee. Unfortunately, I am leaving town this Friday to hopefully see the last launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavor.
I will be counting on some of you to send your reports to the tip line, firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to know the particulars. From what I have seen on the Times and heard on the radio, we have the loyal opposition, a Democrat in Michael Parker, and a member of the esteemed Tax Assessor’s Board, Bobby Hulsey. With a quick search on Facebook you can find a group that has been put together with a whopping 27 members. Assuming that all 27 live in South Hall and are registered voters, the group is over a quarter of the way to beginning the process.
We want to know how many Olivers, Banks and Sentors are at the meeting. We want to know the complaints. We want to know how much money you plan to raise. We want to know all the details. Don’t hold back.
I do find it interesting that the Democrat that ran against James Mills would be teaming up with a member of the Tax Assessor’s board. In trying to find out a little more about Mr. Hulsey, I consulted my network (the armadillo hat club) to see his political allegiance. From what I can tell, he doesn’t like many of the elected representatives from Hall County. I heard that the only person he would probably like recalled more than Lutz is the Lt. Gov. I have always heard that politics makes for strange bedfellows so we will have to see who all joins the cause.
