    Why, why, why-Why would you even bring up the issue of ; 3) Do you have a predilection to sleep with a hard piece of metal under your covers while zonked on mind-altering substances? Definitely lacks class. Just leave the previous Police Chief alone and let that family move on with their lives.

    E Pluribus Unum..........if a looter enters your house you had better make certain they are there to harm YOU not your property. You can only use deadly force if you fear for your own life. Remember who's in control of government, it's not citizens, it's politicians. As for Mr. Presberg, any intelligent reader can see what he's attempting to do, drive divisions into our community. Opinions are not policy, no matter who expresses the opinion. That's why the entire blog is entitled "opinion". He needs to get a grip.

    I'm betting that shortly after the final selection is announced, you will see Capt Pye's retirement announcement--and you can't blame him!

    IF a looter enters my house.....he/she will be shot. If you are knowingly breaking the law, be prepared for the consequences. Liberals don't understand this. Difference between a liberal and conservative? When something on tv offends a liberal, they hoot and howler, call their government official, start a petition, force everyone else to agree that they do not like the tv show, have a protest and campaigns. A conservative simply walks over and turns the channel .....

    They were writing as private citizens. So free speech is the first priority. If a looter enters your house Mr. Presberg, what pray would you do (pray? can't do that can you); maybe try to reason and feel sorry for the looters?

    Hey B313...Actually, since you have already with your count skills up to 4, guess I don't need to. So glad you noticed. Gold star night for you, toots.

    RWM-This is why they are called politicians. The voting public continue to elect politicians who will say whatever the public wants to here. If we were electing business owners or business minded (CEO's, COO's, etc.) these issues would never exist. The inherit problem is citizens don't want to hear the truth. They would rather hear lies and then complain when they are informed of the truth. The voting public will never learn.

    What traffic issues? GWL will create no traffic issues, regardless of where they go. It's pretty simple math. This sounds much like the council not wanting to put a Marriott at Lexington because they were worried about traffic issues on the Parkway. When you do that math it comes out to less than 30 additional cars a day. So we rezoned the best office park in PTC because of 30 additional cars a day. Can anyone add?

    Pay less on the front end and much much more on the back end. It looks like cities are rated (ISO) by the insurance companies who then adjust what communities pay for fire insurance. A house closer than 20 feet without sprinklers may affect the whole city's rating. Did anyone ask these simple questions? Anyone who purchases these homes better be aware that they will be paying higher premiums because the builder wanted to save a few thousand dollars. Just be happy none of these will be rentals, lol.

    Do any of these candidates have a propensity to sleep with a loaded gun?

    No consulting with anyone, Gym guy. This thing is greased from the beginning. All Pinewood, all the way. An economic engine that will save us all. You may not believe it, but the pols do. You and the fire chief may think a normal review process is called for, but no - not for Christian Chicken movie making. This is and always has been a done deal. Go ask Steve Brown about it and see how he stumbles all over the issue of density (used to be bad, but not now), Traffic (used to be bad, now its good).Road to nowhere? (no it was his plan all along as an economic driver). Yes, he actually used those words "economic driver" in a meeting my neighbor (a foolish liberal dog owner - although I like his dog) attended undercover. God knows how he would answer a sprinkler question, but fortunately the city is in charge and they have spoken.

    Thank you! I wish you had remained on the BOE. I wish I had campaigned harder for you. Please let there be a next time.

    Who do you propose is going to be running these buses? And don't say MARTA because that takes a vote of approval. Look how long it took Clayton to finally get it passed.. The ARC doesn't not have the rights to push any bus service on a community that doesn't want it.

    Me thinks Mr. Oddo needs to explain in detail why he changed the way he is producing meeting minutes under his regime. What has he been hiding or censoring? And hopefully he can keep the unbecoming personal shouters from speaking out from the audience. I predict Mr. Barlow to simply vote against Mr. Brown, simply because he seems to hate everything brown. Pota will be the deciding factor if she is available.

    ARC and northern 98 acres, well read between the lines on that one. Public transit, busses, folks. Here it comes.

    They would fit in perfect in Stockbridge...they wouldn't even notice the increase of traffic, it can't get any worse than it is now. Same with Gwinnett.

    I love how people who know little about public safety make decisions like this based only on revenue. Wait for the lawsuits when someones home catches on fire. Of course council will have immunity from this decision. Wonder how much more these homeowners will pay in homeowners insurance?

    I assume this was a nationwide recruitment process? All three seem to have a Georgia connection, we didn't get a lot of applications from out of state? Seems a bit odd to me, but heck what do I know?

    City Manager First. Exactly ptctrader. Can't believe no one on council can't recognize that this is simply asinine.

    Manager first.... Police Chief second... That should be the correct progression.... and hopefully they will not select a PC that has trailing cronies. Very unprofessional.
