All of the air is out of Pubby's  lungs since his favorite punching bag (Todd Pownall) did mot qualify!!!!

 

Come on Pubby all the BS you have been spewing about Todd Pownall was just that..... Some of your David Austin Bull Chit

 

Now we are in quite a Quandary, four candidates from the Carruth/ Shearin/ Maxwell  era and only one candidate that is not connected at the hips of the GOB's

 

My My  Robbie Dobson sure is looking good in my book. Anything else is a vote to go back to the 1996 -  2008 era of high taxes, shady deals, secret meetings and corruption. not to mention folks that don't pay their taxes.

 

Pubby you have got yourself in quite a mess haven't you????

Actually, I saw Todd at the bank on Monday - he drove in the drive-in next to me - and he said he was still considering it at that moment.  I said I thought he would be frustrated if anyone else was running. 

 

BTW: What happened to Van Westbrook running?

 

And as far as being in quite a mess ... why would you say that.

 

The only thing I'm willing to predict at this point is a low turnout primary with an even lower turnout in a runoff. 

 

I wish someone had qualified as a democrat ;)

It won't be a low turn out with the four GOB's in the race.

 

Robbie Dodson is the only candidate in the race who does not owe their heart and sole to the establishment..

 

Got a lot of re runs. Carruth, Leggett, Carmichael. Heck I wonder why Shearin , Richardson didn't join that group then we could of  had a choice  of all the GOB's.

 

Never Could understand Why Carmichael would quit and then run again, I guess he wanted the job that would automatically put him on the Airport Authority.

 

I wonder if everyone has paid their taxes up to date??? That should be a requirement that all Federal, State, Local, and sales taxes should be paid in full at the time they qualify ?

I think I know the reason for that.   As a sitting Commissioner, had he won the Chairman's spot in this spring's elections,  he would have had to vacate the Post 1 spot upon assuming the new office.   That would have meant a special election would have had to be held for Post 1 sometime after January 1, 2017.   By resigning when he did, it gave candidates for his replacement time to get on the next upcoming election, which was this past "super Tuesday".   Had he not done what he did, exactly when he did it,  the County would have had to held a special election next spring,  and at some pretty significant costs.

That's true but now we're looking at a runoff, no doubt.  That cost is the same as a special election.  He could have remained in his seat much longer than he did and still have his replacement on the March 1 ballot.  This was a political play to try to flush out Todd Pownall or Tony Crowe, it backfired.  Big Time.  I don't like people playing politics.  As a matter of fact, I deplore politics in general.

I still say Dave Carmichael is a good person, I have nothing against him personally.  However listening to David Austin put Post1 in a precarious position with no representation on the BOC for 6 months. 

 

With this line up in the election, I'm thinking poor Dave doesn't stand a chance of even making the runoff. 

 

I believe Whitey and MoJo both live in Post 1.

I have heard that but..... Sam Clark resigned a few day's before qualifying  and the coroners job is on the ballot with two candidates already qualified for the job.

In any event Carmichael was told at a BOC meeting that he could resign as late as February 10, and there would be no special election

 

Edited to add Carmichael would have to resign the very moment he qualified for Commission Chairman, He could no monger hold the commission seat.

I don't remember all the exact dates, but this is my understanding of the timing as Dave's daughter explained it to me.

 

There was a "sweet spot" ( so to speak) in the timing.  I seem to recall something about 100 days notice to get a candidate on a ballot.   His resignation was just a little more than 100 days prior to 3/1 which would have been the next election.    Had he waited to resign Post 1 until he qualified for Chair when that filing opened in Feb (?),  there would have had to be a special election for Post 1,  unless it happened that it would have met the date requirements for a potential runoff for the Chair.   It was the lesser of two evils, leaving the Post open from resignation until Super Tuesday,   or having to have a special election.  There was also the consideration of having a run-off after the 3/1 election.  It could have worked out that Post 1 would have been vacant for 5 or 6 months instead of 3, plus the county could have had more election expense.  

 

As I said,  I don't know all the exact timing and details.  It was explained to me that what Dave did was so that the potential for a special election was minimized.   Despite a lot of people's distaste of his airport position,  it seems to me that he did have the taxpayers in mind with what he did.    

 

I never have understood why we have elections in May for January office-taking.   Why not November like the rest of the world.

Deidre who runs the election office will tell you that Carmichael could of stayed on as Post # 1 Commissioner until February 10. 2016 and then resign and the seat could of been filled without a special election.

Carmichael got confused and resigned the evening that Deidre discussed it at the BoC meeting. He had until February 10, 2016 to quit...... Ask Deidre!!!!  Heck that is on a You tube of the meeting somewhere... It would not surprise me to see him drop out now and Support Bill Carruth.... after all David and Carruth are big buds!!!!

 

Carmichael sure did not have the Tax payers in Mind when he attended the secret meetings held by the Airport Authority and voted to give the Airport away 

 

Nor did he have the Tax payers in mind when he secretly made the agreement and kept that agreement from the Tax payers for another 11 months. 

 

Do know that Carmichael Did all this after he was elected Commissioner, He never resigned from the Airport Authority until he was to be sworn in for the Post # 1 job,

 

From July to December he secretly  remained on the  Airport Authority and helped negotiate the secret deal....

 

He even attended the secret two day off site in Douglasville where they were secretly discussing the commercial service after he was sworn in as Commissioner.

Glassdogs, Whitey is right.  Carmichael had until February 10 to step down as post commissioner and not force a special election.  As I said up there^^^^ it was political maneuvering to have Todd Pownall or Tony Crowe vacate their seat so they could remove the majority being opposed to the commercialization (passenger planes) at the airport.  Dave Carmichael is a good military man and follows direction from his superiors.  I'm sure they had no idea Ron Davis was going to run against Carmichael anyway, even if he didn't step down.  I think Ron was ready to just step up and the opportunity came up sooner than most people expected. 

 

Carmichael did not have to resign in November, he could have waited and Post 1 would have had representation on the board longer, without a special election.

All I know is what Dave told me face to face while I was standing in his kitchen at his home.  (That scenario was later repeated by his daughter who lives down the street from me.)  I don't think Dave knew at the time of our conversation that anyone had filed to seek the Post 1 seat, because he asked me if I would consider the race.   His words to me were something like "I'm sure somebody will file and you would have some competition, but I think you would do a great job."   

 

I honestly wasn't paying attention to the whole thing about the timing.

Those are Primaries.  The General is in November and you may have a runoff to contend with in between to get a candidate for the General.

Dave Carmichael is a good military man and follows direction from his superiors. 

 

 

 
Interesting view you have on those who serve in the military (especially the good ones) that they simply follow direction. Using your logic, who is former military man Commissioner Crowe taking direction from? Or, was he not a good military man and as such doesn't follow direction?

Carmichael did not have to resign in November, he could have waited and Post 1 would have had representation on the board longer, without a special election. 

Had Dave not resigned in Nov, 90 days prior to a regular already scheduled state-wide election,  the County would have to have held a special election for that seat.  That election, by law,  would have to have been "separate and apart" from any of the political parties' primaries and run-offs.  By him doing what he did when he did it,  the taxpayers of Paulding didn't have to spend about $100K on a special election that would have had to be held apart from the local county-wide primaries :good:.  

 

Since Dave retired as a bird colonel from the USMC,  he wasn't taking a LOT of orders from his superiors.  He was providing a lot more direction than he was getting...He also knew, as far back as last July, that there probably would be opposition for his seat, had he chosen to run for reelection.   Don't think for a minute that his decision to run for Chair had anything to do with his "fear" that he might not win reelection.

Oh stop, you're so off base it makes me LOL  You haven't a clue.  Get off that pedestal for a minute and look at the real people of Paulding County.

As a military brat and military mom, there are always superiors. Dave Carmichael is a good man, just not a good politician.

Oh stop, you're so off base it makes me LOL  You haven't a clue.  Get off that pedestal for a minute and look at the real people of Paulding County. 

 

As a military brat and military mom, there are always superiors. Dave Carmichael is a good man, just not a good politician. 

 

I think we have had more than our fair share of "politicians"...I'd like to see what somebody with some character and discipline can do.

He had his chance and voted lock step with David Austin, not a good record.  He's a better citizen than most, he needs to stay there (a citizen).  ;)

Had Dave not resigned in Nov, 90 days prior to a regular already scheduled state-wide election,  the County would have to have held a special election for that seat.  That election, by law,  would have to have been "separate and apart" from any of the political parties' primaries and run-offs.  By him doing what he did when he did it,  the taxpayers of Paulding didn't have to spend about $100K on a special election that would have had to be held apart from the local county-wide primaries :good:.  

 

Since Dave retired as a bird colonel from the USMC,  he wasn't taking a LOT of orders from his superiors.  He was providing a lot more direction than he was getting...He also knew, as far back as last July, that there probably would be opposition for his seat, had he chosen to run for reelection.   Don't think for a minute that his decision to run for Chair had anything to do with his "fear" that he might not win reelection.  

Of course you can always check with the Supervisor of elections Ms. Deidre Holden if you and Dave are still confused on this issue..... If by chance you do go to the source (like I did) will you please post the response you get from Ms. Holden?

 

The problem that Mr. Carmichael, Beach Bum, E F Hutton, and others could not grasp is that we have  more than one  STATE wide elections this year  March 1 2016 was the Presidential Primary,  May 24, 2016 is another  primary election state  wide, and the General election State wide held in November 2016.

 

Pure and simple fact Mr. Carmichael chose to quit the post in November 2015, when he could have remained on the Post 1 Job until February 10, 2016 if he simply had chose to do so.

 

I really believe that Mr. Carmichael was confused and quit earlier than he had to?

Even IF what you are saying is accurate (and it isn't),  Post 1 would have been unrepresented for the same number of days no matter what election date triggered the resignation.   Would you prefer the Post be unrepresented for  5 meetings in Dec, Jan, and Feb  vs 6 or 7 meetings in Feb, Mar, April, and May in 2016?   As usual, you are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Dave Carmichael only served 2 years and 9 months of a 4 year term.  The people in Post 1 may well have expected him to fulfill their wishes.  He was seated the first meeting in 2013, resigned in November 2015.  

Ron Davis is a great guy, Post 1 is very fortunate to have him.  He's already set up a blog to show how he voted on each and every decision, he's promised 3-4 town hall meetings a year.  The first one is scheduled for late June. 

The best part of this election, we now have all 4 post commissioners working together.  With David Austin not running again, I think our new commission chair should make every effort possible to ensure this ugliness goes away.  I love Paulding County, I love the people of Paulding County (well most of them  LOL) 

 

We need jobs, we need businesses wanting to move to Paulding to create those jobs.  Too much focus and money has been spent at the airport.  Let's work on those industrial parks and put the airport on the back burner.  Those aerospace companies don't even need to be located on site at our airport.  We have at least 7 in Paulding County now and not one is at the airport. 

Propeller just needs to leave Paulding County, they have brought nothing but bitterness and distrust.  It's time for healing, the fighting is really over the edge.

He may be saying that now, but where was he for the last 2.9 years when he was voting lock step with David Austin?  Telling us Citizens can be a problem.  It doesn't surprise me at all.

The entire video is on youtube.  Spend a little effort if you want to see "context".  Mr. Carmichael thinks we should hand over taxpayer dollars to any one that wants it.  See it for yourself.

No thanks. Mr. Carmichael strikes me as an highly educated, articulate gentleman who I highly doubt would take that position.

Pffft, suit yourself.  An educated voter is a good voter.  Someone that bases their vote on how someone "strikes" them is why we have the mess we're in now. 

 

I will agree Mr. Carmichael is educated and articulate, a very nice man.  But his votes, his words, and his actions speak for them self.

You are not my monitor Tundra. I am more than capable of vetting my candidate.

It is not all that important one way or the other.   He had announced his intention to seek the Chairman's job back last July or August.   He told me at that time that he would have to relinquish his Post 1 seat.  I knew of his plans before they had been announced and were common knowledge.   I have been told, on two different occasions, that the November 10 date resignation date was determined not by Dave, but by Diedra.  The info she provided him triggered that date.   Not any under-the-table deals.

 

Stop looking for black helicopters.  The ones Dave knows how to fly are cammo.  :)
