Haddix gone but Ms. Learnard quarrels on

For the life of me, I can’t understand why the City Council of Peachtree City has turned into the epicenter of fighting and negativity.

[Council members] Kim Learnard and Vanessa Fleisch fought with former Mayor Haddix over and over again for four years. Don Haddix is gone and everyone thought that if we just got rid of him it would all go away; yet the fighting continues!

I’m not sure why Kim feels that hurling insults at the Fayette County Commission is a good idea, but I wish someone would tell her that she is making us look bad AGAIN around the metro region.

If she wants to keep the hot streak going on landing new businesses and jobs, she needs to reconsider her approach.

2013 was a year of harmony between the county government and cities, and look at the opportunities that came knocking at our door. The county commissioners have done a good job in turning things around by stopping the battles between the county and cities.

I have a high regard for Kim Learnard, but on this matter I think she has gone off the reservation.

We have had four years of the worst possible infighting between council members and the former mayor. Enough already! Let’s try to be civil and get along.
