Patti Smith hits on being in crash zone B and expressed thought that if 'they can get away with that in Ferguson' she opines that kind of government power may make her a target of her 'enemies' amongst the good old boys in Paulding politics.

 

 

In her stump speech, Ms. Smith said provacatively, "If they'll do that out here, they might shoot me the next time I wave a sign at David Austin"
 

 

 

The stump speeches of the other candidates can be viewed in this topichere

 

Ms. Smith is running against incumbent Post 2 commissioner Todd Pownall and said after her speech she blamed him for being asleep at the wheel when the airport deal was being done behind closed doors, asserting it was his responsibility to know whether or not he was told or the information was kept from him.

PCED Holds annual meeting at Burnt Hickory Park

21 Aug 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page


Attendance was good with fifty or more community leaders attending the Annual Meeting of the Paulding County Economic Development held at Burnt Hickory Park this morning. The event lauded the accomplishments of PCED over the past year including the openings of the new Paulding Wellstar Hospital, new Interroll and Ronchi plants and an expansion at Simmons.

Former PCED board members were also honored and PCED Chairman Mark Haney discussed the continuing rapid success of the Paulding's Wellstar hospital, which is not only gaining recognition nationally for its design but exceeding benchmarks five years sooner than expected.

The meeting ended with a recap of the challenges and opportunities that included bits on how citizens can help the county reach its development goals by PCED executive director Jamie Gilbert. Here is that recap that touches on the fallout from the airport controversy as well.

15 Aug 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page


While enrollment is just slightly above last year - more students are expected to arrive in the coming weeks - the boost was enough for Paulding to be ranked the 13the largest system in the state.

Cole congratulated his staff and system and noted that this year will be the first in the last five in which there are no furlough days scheduled. He said teachers could look forward to a small cost of living wage increase as well.

Other news includes the dumping by the system of the CRCT testing regime and its replacement with a new one. Cole said the schools had improved their ranking in something like 26 of 28 measured areas.

13 Aug 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page


The Paulding Board of commissioners voted unanimously to lower the millage rate on the taxable property in the county rolling back the tax rate to compensate for increased values.

The commission also did some other business including approving plans for the expansion of video surveillance on the Silver Comet Trail. Public support for that project in the wake of the savage and senseless beating of a resident on the trail in late July.

Early in the meeting the commission was given a report by the county's new Ambulance Service which took over EMS activities in January.
