How Did They Do?

20150416_182559[1]

The past several years I started keeping the campaign material that I received from candidates. With the resignations of Council Members Gibbs and Richards (Tara), I thought it would be a good time to reflect on some of the campaign promises made. My guess is that their winning formula will be used by one of…

Don’t Stop

rumours-album-cover

Ever since the announcement of a special election to replace two Flowery Branch council members and my announcement that I will/will not run, I have wanted to write about the people that have been rumored to be in the running for one of the two positions.

Flowery Branch Water

I think that most of you know that I got my start in politics when I was elected to Flowery Branch City Council. Since I have been home twiddling my thumbs for the past 3 months, a lot of people have inquired if I am going to run for one of the two open seats…

When is a Pay Raise not a Pay Raise?

I had a friend in Sterling on the Lake text me a picture of a push card left on his Mailbox for one of the disputed races in Flowery Branch.  My friend’s question concerned the comment about repealing the 70% pay raise.  He wanted to know if the information was true and why he hadn’t…

Back to the Fetterman

As predicted, the campaign season in Flowery Branch looks to be a busy one.  Late last week, former Council Member, Chris Fetterman, announced on WDUN his intentions to run for office.  Evidently, Mr. Fetterman was vague in announcing exactly which position he was running for leaving the option open to either run for a council…
