Give Mayor Harold Logsdon a chance to change

Before everybody starts saying “I told you so” and declaring Harold Logsdon a dictator, perhaps we should give him the opportunity to repent and admit he was wrong with TDK. After he makes amends, we can look at the big box issues and get on with our lives.

Yes the mayor is on the verge of making a slue of bad decisions, but he hasn’t made them yet, so we need to pray for his heart to transform. Anything is possible.

There is too much anger in our city right now. I’m not saying the anger is not justified, but we also need hope in our city that things can get better.

The mayor isn't going to make good on the TDK disaster.

Don't you mean just do nothing so he can get it done sooner?
Everything in this county, including PTC is being re-zoned for nearly-attached housing and commercial. Why is that? One thing only: the government wants more tax money from the buildings so they can expand empires, and the landowners and developers want to get rich.
Voters keep putting these people who are favorable to all these things into office. Later generation will pay for it.

Probably well meaning, but still naive. This was always about big money and the mayor & city council just hoped TDK would be well on its way to completion before its true intention & impact were known. Do you think its a coincidence that numerous Fayette developers own parcels of land that stand to explode in value when the east Coweta mega development is built? PTC is all but built out, so other than redevelopment there is no more money to be made here. So even though we all paid a premium to enjoy PTC's quality of life, these people don't care about tearing that down if there's a buck to be made one county over. Year's ago, there was a mayor of a little city in Clayton County near the airport called Mountain View. Big money wanted to expand the airport authority into the same land, but the mayor stood in their way. A few years later, the mayor is in jail on trumped up civil rights charges, the city charter is pulled and numerous county commissioners and Atlanta City politicians swept in to purchase the newly condemned land at fire sale prices... Money talks, it always has.

Oh please, if you think for a single second that Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon is going to back off TDK even though we know the whole thing is a fraud, you're crazy!

This is the same guy who cut the city employees' compensation only to turn around and offer himself a 100% pay raise. The guy has other motives and being a public servant ain't one of them.

When I retire how can I get my hands on some of what you are know just for medicinal purposes???

Do you have enough money to top what the developers and big boxes are going to give harold?

Yes there is anger in our city. We were sold on one concept/plan and we are having another plan being shoved down our throats by developers/and dishonest politicians.

harold should resign now so we can move on, and start a new chapter in our broken city.

Big boxes are not noted for graft, but developers are. Of course it is not done in cash or with any paper trails. Somwtimes a good job is available, but usually by another company so there is no direct trace.
Stock tips sometimes are useful. There is a million ways to do it. It is a very similar thing to how an administration in Washington runs things:President appoint District Attorneys to supervise prosecutions who will do as your staff (not you) direct them to do. The Attorney General may not even be told, but he will take the fall if necessary. (Rove, comes to mind, or Harriet, as the staff), fire the DAs if they don't cooperate, but if they do cooperate a few years, they can get a lot of donations to run for some office, or work for Halliburton, say. It is easy with the right people.
