The Great Debate June 13, 2008

Monday June 16, 2008   The debate last Friday night gave all 6 candidates running for Post 3 Commissioner the opportunity to address the voters concerning local issues that mattered to them. We were all pleased to see the large turnout. The entire debate will be broadcast on Channel 16, shortly.   The format of the debate was fair and we all received an outline of the type of questions that would be asked several days prior to the debate. We knew that there might be some questions on the

Courthouse Tour Supplement

Courthouse Tour Supplement   As I said, you have to be impressed with the new Courthouse and Administrative building complex. Overall the planning and quality seems to be very good. There was however, one point that did concern me that I needed to get some more clarification on.   There does not seem to be a Board of Commissioners public meeting room at either building. In asking the “powers that be” why there was no plan for such a room was told first that the Board meetings were going

New Courthouse Tour May 2, 2008

With all politics aside as to the way the new Courthouse and Administrative buildings where approved and the issues facing the Facilities Group, I have some distinct impressions of Paulding County’s new facility.   I was able to spend over 2 hours in a guided tour of our new government complex and I must say I was impressed. The design and construction of the buildings is well thought out and will be a point of pride for years to come.   The two buildings were designed especially for Pauld

Signs

Well, this week is the moment of truth for this election cycle……. qualifying. All candidates for elected office must file their ”Declaration of Candidacy and Affidavit” then plunk down some money to run. In the sheriff’s race alone that is thousand of dollars.   As I make my daily travels through the County talking and listening to voters I can’t help but take notice of the ever growing “yard sign battle” taking shape. I must admit if the election was based on how many signs can be put up o

Platform

My campaign for Post III in the County Commissioner’s election is picking up momentum. Many questions are being asked about my platform in this very important special election. Motivated by progressive and enlightened self-government, I am taking this opportunity to share some specific ideas that we share as concerned citizens.   Issues or Opportunities?   Clearly, we have many opportunities together in moving Paulding County to the next level. The focus needs to be on opportunities and not

Meet and Greet

Interesting the mixed reactions I have received since my announcement. It is nice to have people smile, shake my hand and ask "how can I help". It is also interesting to see and hear comments about me which are uninformed and just plain incorrect. Looks like there will be at least four people running for the Post which might mean a runoff in August. I am speaking at the Republician Party meeting on Saturday April 12 at Family Savings Credit Union, 342 Charles Hardy Pkwy, in Hiram at 9 am
