I have come to believe that these candidates will say anything to get your vote. to the point of sounding ridiculous. Ottaviano had this to say on his Twitter account. Granted, he said it to all 4 of his Twitter followers. See the screen shot. This was posted twice.
You can solve any and all issues in 24 hours? Here is my issue for you to solve: What do we do about a guy claiming he can solve all of our problems in 24 hours?
You have got to be kidding me. Kidding the voters. To come on this site and blast us while in an election is just insane. Do you have ANY idea how many people read this site each day? I do, and it is close to the number of votes one would need to win this election. Not for you, but enough for someone to win. Are you asleep at the wheel?
I will give you the same message I gave Banks. Thank you for letting the voters know what to expect from you before we made the mistake of possibly voting for you. If you can’t handle being in the public eye now, you have no business being in an office where you will constantly be in the public eye. I have a problem that can be solved in a little over 24 hours, putting someone qualified in House Seat 25.
Alas, you are not alone. I listen to Mr. Sykes talking on a radio show about his bid in tomorrows election. For those of you confused, Sykes is running for the vacant House seat that Mr. 24 Hours above is running for, not the Flowery Branch Council against Fetterman, or Gainesville Council, or Sheriff, or Judge or what ever he plans on running for after losing this one. It is the House seat.
Sykes says a number of times that he will get rid of furloughs for the police. That would be you boys and girls in brown that are still haunted by the departure of Jeff Strickland (who will enjoy his retirement money and avoid investigation, let us know how that works out for you Colonel)
The thing is, Sonny, you have no idea what you would be doing if elected. It was the old Commission that put those furloughs in place, and that seat has nothing to do with it. Again, I can not justify voting or telling voters to vote for someone who has simple throw their name in a hat. Do not lie to the fine men and women from the HCSO to get their vote. Considering all they have been through, your lies are just too much.
It is becoming clear that there is a huge lack of political experience in this race. Limited to only Bobby Banks and Kris Yardley. Quite frankly, Bobby Banks scares the hell out of us. Forget the “getting people fired” thing. I mean, that is definitely a character issue as well as a FACT, but what worries me is the emails WE received from Bobby Banks in April;

Please give me a call 678-XXX-XXXX
Our response was simple but to the point;

Good afternoon Mr. Banks,
Sorry for the delay as I have been out of town. I have talked to my boss
about the request to call you. He feels that all communication should be
kept to e-mail as any tip would need to be backed up with written
communication. If you have a tip, comment, or announcement, feel free to
e-mail it to me or to my boss at email@example.com.
Thanks for your understanding,

I think I could help in the county, but you know who I am and without any assurance, you might be able to use anything I tell against me in the next election, please think about the phone call.
Sent from my iPad
We declined to call Bobby Banks on the phone. He has failed to demonstrate a level of integrity sufficient to trust that the information he had to offer would be reliable.
But to the voter, I have a question. (maybe Ottavian can answer this in 24 hours) What was it that Bobby planned to share with the Truth? Here we are, in the “next election” that Banks spoke of, and I find myself remiss for not at least hearing what he was going to say. Was he going to out Oliver? Powell? What dirt does he have and why was he willing to share with this “obscure website that no educational person would use for anything other than entertainment” ?
Who were you going to toss under the proverbial BUS, Bobby? Better yet, how would it damage you in the “next election”????
It would seem to me that the skeletons in Bobby Banks closet are plentiful and quite restless. Someone needs to send me THAT chunk of secrets!
Come on Bobby, tell us what you had to share. Please? Pretty please? We will vote for you….or at least TELL YOU ONE THING AND DO ANOTHER! We learned that from your example.
In closing, this is the message The Truth wants to send to the voters:
THINK ABOUT YOUR VOTE .
YOU DON’T WANT RECALL EFFORTS, YOU WANT THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB THE FIRST TIME!
This is not a popularity contest, it is a political office. We need help and the only way to get it is to put qualified people in the positions to help us.
One last thing:
If you don’t vote, SHUT THE HELL UP.
