Don't worry I know what led to the problem.  Just one good idea on a list of nonsense.

I got nothing from that.

But there was this:
Quote
The socioeconomic indicators scream to us that this school should be a failure. In fact, 81% of the children at Upson receive free or reduced lunch.

I can see taxpayer savings in our future.... YESSSS!!!

CUT THOSE TAXES!

CUT THOSE TAXES!

repeat...

my favorite is how he plans to cut taxes and "the wasteful spending of City hall liberals"...I suggest people take a look at the growth in budget for the Tax Collector's office over the last 8 years!

I should have ran for mayor and just shouted, "I will cut your taxes"! I might have had a pretty good chance of winning. Where the heck is his vision for our City and its future?

Straight from the last paragraph:

Quote
As Mayor I will explore every opportunity for job creation and economic development within our City. Everything is on the table. I will continue to explore opportunities for partnering with the DOD to utilize our assets at the Cecil Commerce Center.

Would that include reversing consolidation?  Or spending some time (no consulting money needed) studying it?  I think the results would be astounding.

You're gonna need to do something about preserving the sanctity of life and the second amendment. (I like to call these the live and let die binary precepts)

Where will we end up if our next mayor doesn't protect us from a city council that is determined to undermine these founding principles?

Then there's this whole illegal immigration thingy.

There is no proof that cutting taxes stimulates the economy.  We have learned from many cities that this is not the case.  I see his plan as short sighted and if Rick Scott is any prophecy of what is to come....I don't want Mike Scott...I mean Mike Hogan leading this city.  Oh he does seem like a really nice guy, but you know that just does not cut it!  Sorry Mike!

actually I read this as possibly opening Cecil back up as a military base....wonder how his westside supporters would feel about that?

Gun control, abortions, and illegal immigration. Now, if I could just get his stance on Libya and budget issues in California, I'd be all set to make my decision.

hahahaha. +100. You have his stance on California, btw. They're a bunch of hippy-dippy pinko commie liberal welfarers. And they're in the deepest debt hole because they give all the budget to evil poor people and allow gays to marry, not because CA is the biggest population and economy in the US by far in a time when the whole economy is struggling.

..I don't want Mike Scott...

Michael Scott would actually be awesome. He's unconventional, but he gets the job done. And he really cares. And he's awkward.

I like his positions that illegal aliens can't get licenses, but they can get guns. I will never understand this radical support of gun proliferation masked as 2nd amendment patriotism.

Seriously - this is like the worst platform I've ever seen anyone run on for a local office.  Unreal.  Even Peyton's was better in 2003.
