They Will Say Anything for Your VOTE

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;

Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2011 14:46:36 -0400
From: Bobby Banks
Subject: [No Subject]

Please give me a call 678-XXX-XXXX

Bobby Banks

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

Thanks for your understanding,


We do not play in unverifiable information, especially when the mud is going to fly.   So Banks response was priceless;

Sent from my iPad

Bobby Banks

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:




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.

    Comments from the Pulitzer article:

    Dominic Ottaviano on November 7, 2011 at 12:33 pm (Edit)

    I guess it depends on your objective an position. I am not doing anything to be politically correct or liked. Give it up on the law, it’s a dead horse and you just keep kicking. I am the only one who did not break it and even I am saying it’s a stupid point. Hugh, it is a law that is not broken if the late fee is paid. It is a late fee. Let it go man.

    As for the naive or simply not informed. Try the third option, I don’t give a crap if you vote for me or not. I am not in this for popularity; I am in it to improve our community. If that means I piss off some folks along the way so be it. Sometimes folks don’t want to hear what they need to.

    And give up comparing yourself to Silence Dogood as at the time Ben was a 16 year-old kid. Not an adult starting a fight while standing behind someone else, that’s just gutless.

    Opps, you got me on the “educational” typo, I’ve been working a lot lately so please forgive my being human.

    Knowledge, sorry don’t even need to argue that one. Yes, I may have a typo and typed my answer in all of a minute without spell checking but it’s an online blurb, not something being written for the Pulitzer.

    Now the sad thing is we are here arguing but I am probably the closest candidate you have to wanting the truth out regardless of what it means for the election. I have taken a couple stances that will most likely knock me out of the race but will also clean things up for the rest of the candidates. If you want to see what I mean instead of slamming me back go to YouTube and search Kris Yardley


    The Truth on November 7, 2011 at 1:59 pm (Edit)

    Deaton Creek (not Deaton on the Creek, guess that was another example of you working to hard to pay attention) Reunion and Sterling on the Lake (not Lakes, you were standing in front of the sign!)

    So forget all the people who can’t afford to live in those well to do neighborhoods? their vote doesn’t count to you? Oh wait, you already said you don’t give a crap if someone votes for you and that it doesn’t matter if you PISS people off because you know what they need to hear more than they know themselves.
    You sir are a joke and I hope that all of South Hall reads this today and tomorrow. Hell, I hope they watch your YouTube videos as well so they can know EXACTLY what they would be getting if they voted for you. I am not sure just yet who gets my vote, but I know for a fact that it will not be you. Let me list my reasons:

    1: You are to busy to pay attention to detail. That is not a quality I need in someone representing me

    2: You don’t give a damn if we vote for you. YOUR WORDS

    3: You don’t care if you piss the voters off because you know what they need to hear. Who does that?

    4: You believe you can solve any issue in 24 hours and you expect us to BELIEVE that? A pizza company tried that with a 30 minute guarantee, do you know how many people died from them rushing to keep their promise?

    5: You are the only candidate I have seen publicly bashing another candidate. That tells us that you can not win on your own merit so you want to convince the public that you are the lesser of the evils.

    It is funny how everyone talks about negative campaigns, but it is Banks, Sykes and now Ottaviano who do the loudest whining while delivering a negative campaign. I believe that we need mental screens for those that run for office because these guys have a few too many voices in their heads.

      November 15, 2011 at 3:31 pm

      Right In Hall – Haven’t heard Sykes doing any whining, just you guys whining about Sykes. Actually it appears he’s shown great dignity throughout the race, beginning to end, something you guys don’t have the ability to conceive. Most around the county hopes he DOES run again. He is the type person we NEED in office, above your trash and garbage. All that most of you do is write about something you know nothing about just to spew venom get a rise and you talk…..I guess that’s just to hear your heads roar cause abviously no one really cares about what you have to say do they? How you liking your boy Yardley NOW?????

      • The Truth
        November 16, 2011 at 5:28 pm

        Sure… if you say so. What is he running for now? Has to be something… He was so diligent in running, waving to the people from the corner, but when exactly is he going to take down his signs? Unless he is running for something else and is leaving them up for that reason…

        • GoBigRed
          November 17, 2011 at 11:11 am

          You really love dogging Sykes! HA! It’s almost funny! I feel if we are lucky we WILL indeed see him again. Or is it that you too have a problem with lawyers altogether? You know Abraham Lincoln was also a lawyer…I guess you have a problem with him too? Just curious, why do you care when and what Sykes runs for. I mean shouldn’t good decent people run for office to represent us? Have you even had the opportunity to meet and really talk with him. What happened to you? Did Sykes ream you in a divorce? I bet he doesn’t even know you or this site exists. Actually he would probably laugh and enjoy reading alot of the posts. Personally most comments I read on here make me want to shower afterwards, especially all the rants of the Ottaviano candidate. You just fell right into that. Why?

  5. Dominic Ottaviano
    November 7, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Correction, I don’t give a damn if YOU vote for me. Yes I had some errors, I am not a career politician or someone on the news. I am normal person trying to make a difference but with sarcastic people out there like you I am learning why decent people don’t go into politics.

    1. I put the video together with high school kids who I think did a great job. I am nervous on camera and misspoke a few things. Get over it and when you are perfect and don’t hide behind a screen name come talk to me.

    2. Already covered, you don’t matter to me.

    3. I do, sometimes the right thing to do is not always popular. I ‘m not telling everyone hey, free Welfare, vote for me. I am saying we need less government, to work harder and to get politicians out. Now that I how normal business people who get involved and don’t try and kiss everyone’s ass are treated I know why we have what we have in politics. You see you are the problem not the solution. You hide behind a screen name like a little chicken and make fun of everyone else when the TRUTH is you are the problem, it’s easy to hide and call other people names. Try actually doing something that helps move towards a solution.

    4. Yes, challenge me instead of make fun of me. Problems are not that big of a deal when you stop arguing over them and look for a solution. You wouldn’t know that, you are a weasel hiding behind the screen name enjoying the argument. Dumb comparison to Domino’s. You are also missing the fact that the challenge is symbolic of the fact that if we stop arguing and find solutions they are easy to find. Your simple mind probably missed that.

    5. Wrong, I am sacrificing myself to stand up for the other candidates. You see “someone” is doing negative campaigning against them and that is not cool. When I found the information I was dumbstruck. You see you are now trying to bash me and my character but I walk a fine line you could barely crawl. I don’t have name recognition and funding as I am paying my own way minus some contributions from family and friends. I don’t have 5 law firms contributing $12,000 one of which also supports Obama. So I know I am not going to win, but I am going to make an impact, remember there are six people who are not going to win.

    You know I came back just to post that the Gainesville Times is not following up on the story about Yardley and Lutz regarding the censuring Richards until after the election and was going to let you the details of a story in case you wanted to do some real investigating and reporting but then I saw this and see that what I heard about this online rant is true.

      November 7, 2011 at 4:04 pm

      I believe you need medication. You come to this site and blast and curse and accuse. that is all good, IF you weren’t running for public office. The fact is you say you will make an impact but all you are doing is blasting other candidates. I can’t wait until the GOP sees your garbage. You have embarrassed yourself publicly. Continue your bashing of me and my team as well as the candidates you run against. Thank you for letting us know we make a difference. Best of luck to you in your future sir, and I mean that, as long as it is not political, as I believe you have no business in politics.

    November 8, 2011 at 7:33 am

    Let’s clear this up. Whoever’s site this is, and I have three (CL, CY and TS) names I have been given but won’t say publicly until I verify it, needs to stop hiding and have the gull to say any of this to my face. You think this is part of an election. While tomorrow you will have still said it and I will still be out there showing that your candidate is a hoax. You are a little weasel hiding behind a screen name. You see I am a Yankee and the difference is if we don’t like you we tell you to your face, usually followed by kicking your ass. We aren’t fake and sake your hand and act like your buddy then go and secretly blast you behind your back. We have character which is something a weasel does not. You just sit and hide and call me names secretly. Well the election is all but over and regardless of the outcome you and I still have a problem.

  7. Dominic Ottaviano
    November 8, 2011 at 10:07 am

    Wrong again, and like I keep saying at least I can use my own identity you and am not hiding. I am not bashing “other candidates” I am bashing one in particular who I consider a bully to other persons whom hold political offices. I am getting along great with the other five. I can’t help it the one I choose to out regarding his money coming from attorney’s who go after businesses and that he and his buddy bullied a local council member while he committed the same act is your candidate and buddy too.

    You see you are arguing what you can’t win, that your candidate is backed by attorney’s who go after businesses and one who is a bully and needs to be out of politics. You see because you have no fact s to back up your candidate and say “no he didn’t” you are trying to attack me. A typical simple minded trick to move the attention away from the facts, the facts you are hiding behind a screen name and the fact your candidate is backed by attorneys and PAC’s who represent personal injury against small businesses driving up our workers compensation rates. Because you have no facts to argue your pathetic self is resorting to name calling, grow up. You lose and hopefully so with the bully you are backing.

    And at some point be smart enough not to reply because I will just keep calling you out with facts and not name calling. That is the difference about someone with knowledge and someone who is following someone with blind faith. BTW, keep bashing me as a politician as I have said since day one, I am not one, so if I am not doing good at it I consider it a compliment.

  8. The Truth
    November 8, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Ok, first let’s clear things up. Craig Lutz, Kris Yardley, and I am unsure of TS, so if you wold fill in the blanks. None of which own this site or are on my staff. This is simply a political blog and now you are trying to kick someones ass? Are you you serious.

    This has to be a joke. This has to be someone else posing as the business man and politician running for the General Assembly of Georgia House seat 25. There is no way that a grown man in the public eye nor a professional would act this way and say these things on a website read by so many people in Hall County.

    This is political. You are in a Political race. We do not support any particular candidate. Otherwise you would see a banner on the from page that said VOTE FOR X. We do have lawyers. Good ones. And you continue to bash lawyers.

    If this really is Ottaviano, I am amazed.

  9. The Truth
    November 8, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    No SIR, you are wrong again. You will not find one “vote for Yardley” post on this site. I am still amazed that the day of the election you have time to be on a blog threatening the blog owner and or his staff with “Yankees would kick you ass” type statements.
    As far as the law firms that donated to anyone’s campaigns, so be it. Lawyers practice law. The laws that we the voters elect representatives to make. What about the victims in those personal injury lawsuits? I guess those people are just criminals to you. This was never personal, sir, again we here at the Truth wish you all the best in your endeavors, however you have demonstrated that you have no place in politics representing the Georgians in a Yankee fashion.

    November 8, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    Funny how I have consumed your entire site, if I am the only “truth” you have to report on I guess your online rant is smaller than I thought. I am done here and this will be my last post.

    You have weaseled out of being straight up about who you are, quoted me out of context and don’t comprehend a comment that is not saying “I am going to kick your ass” but is saying we say things straight and don’t hide like a weasel. If I have a problem I will say it right to you like a man; not hide and call names.

    Good day to you sir as you are a huge part of why good people don’t go into politics, you are the problem not the solution. You really stirred the wrong hornets nest, you see for me after tonight I will no longer be a candidate and am new enough that even I will be surprised and humbled if I make the runoff even with the fact I have done so well in the forums unlike you candidate who is a mimic with no ideas of his own. No, tonight I become an activist, and stand up for those who need stood up for. See ya, and probably sooner than you would like!

    • The Truth
      November 8, 2011 at 7:58 pm

      You do realize that I approve all if your posts, right? I and I alone have afforded you a voice on this site. I allowed you to continually embarrass yourself with you obvious anger issues. Again, thus is not that candidates site, nor the commissioners site. You can’t seem to understand that. We have not supported any candidate in this race. I will take your comments as a threat, none the less. As a politician or a business man or a grown man in general, what you have said here should let everyone know exactly what they need to know.

  11. Dominic Ottaviano
    November 8, 2011 at 11:27 pm

    Well I guess I am the happy one tonight. I never made a threat so please clarify yourself. You keep claiming not to be certain people but how can I believe a weasel behind a screen name. Sorry to come back after saying I wouldn’t but after the results tonight I just had to chuckle a little. Now I am not a candidate, I can really say what I think and you are still a chicken behind a screen name and I am someone that just has to clean a few more people out of politics.

    You convince two people to run against Swafford and Fetterman, preventing them from helping.

    You get Sandoval and CF (Lutz too? Not sure) to tilt at windmills on this site behind assumed names, thinking that it wil be effective.

    You make sure FB qualifying is before the state house election.

    You numbnuts fighting with Dominic was priceless and pointless. You took your eye off the ball. All of you.

I believe you have my balls mistaken for someone else’s ball. This site never lost site of our goals. I didn’t support a candidate here, other than “ANYBODY BUT BANKS” So I believe you need to get some facts straight.
