The Times, They are a-Changin’
“I get perturbed at The Times because they are almost campaigning, (and) I know why, but we won’t get in to that.”
My favorite part is that This fine Hall County citizen pours his heart out on an issue that he is quite obviously passionate about and after all is said and done…The council ANSWERS!
Chairman Oliver – “K”, …at this time we gonna go to item seven which is other business.“
I am not making this up. Watch the video. Seriously, this man goes all out about the tax payers having to pay more because of meth labs. It doesn’t really matter what the topic was, does it?
The answer was still – “K.” Way to be thorough Mr. Chairman!
Not even a thank you? How about “You raise a good point” or even “We will look into it“
On the other hand, Commissioner Powell seems really fond of the Times.
The Commission took the time to say good buy to Gainesville Times reporter Melissa Weinman. They even chipped in and bought the nice reporter lady a $25 Starbucks card. All the commissioners said a few kind words and wished her well. I only wished they would have said what they really thought. I have read the Times, and I find it hard to believe that some of those fellas were sad to see her go. That unbiased reporting sure did seem to lean in a particular direction.
I’m just Sayin’…
Here is the video of the meeting. I encourage you to watch the whole thing. If you are going to talk about what the Commissioners are doing, see it for yourself.
