First off, I want to congratulate Mr. Logsdon on an overwhelming victory. Mr. Brown, you gave us 4 years, but despite your improvements to the city, your antagonistic methods were a major factor in your downfall.

However, what I really wanted to post here is that I am glad to have had the opportunity to meet some of Peachtree City's concerned residents here. While we may not comprise the majority of voters, we are representative's of the city. There were mixed emotions about the various candidates and they were shared in this forum.

I have come to "know" various characters via their pen names and have the utmost in respect for those that engaged in constructive dialogue. Yes, we heard some of the same old same old, over and over again, but; we did have dialogue. This doesn't happen in many countries and to that we owe thanks to those that have provided this freedom before us, and those that will provide the same in the future.

One person that I would also like to thank is Cal Beverly. You gave us a forum to express our opinions. To my knowledge you kept censorship to a minimum, and then; only where it had to be done. Thanks.

To Dan Tennant, I am grateful to have come to know you in a way that I did not before. We have differences in opinion, but recognizing that and moving forward is what this election is about. Once again, we had an opportunity to express ideas that we have never had before.

I hope that we can someday come together and share a pizza and a beer and discuss the direction that the city is moving in. Hopefully it will be one that is positive and can provide us with results that we are all happy with.

My vote is Harold Logsdon pays for the pizza and the beer. Partner's works for me and it is just down the walk from Y-Not's, his defacto campaign headquarters.

Thanks again, and I have thoroughly enjoyed this.

Heartily agree. It has really made ALL of us defend our positions. This means we really had to actually research what we said to make sure it's right. I always enjoy political "banter" and will miss so many of the comments. To all I hope I didn't actually offend anyone. It has been great "fun." Now what will we do into the wee hours?

So to all a very happy holidays! I look forward to a continued relationship here as more controversy arises. But I must say I am very happy that the last four years are over. Being one who has been personally assaulted in the paper by Brown I am glad to see him get his "just reward." Congratulations to PTC. Civility and reason will return.

To all the bloggers - I really appreciate knowing that there are folks who care this much about the city, even while they passionately disagree about it. Hope there are no long-term hard feelings. Thanks, and congratulations to Mayor-elect Logsdon.

If Brown runs for county commission next year, there will be plenty to complain about. He's already shown how vindictive he can be against individuals - how about when he's ticked off at 70% of our city? And if you think he can't win - be careful and remember it will be a county-wide vote - which means there will be twice as many non-PTC voters than there will be PTC voters. Think about that!

His disaster-is-everywhere and scorched-earth routine is even less popular in the county. Sure, he'd get some votes from the north end of the county since he's the recipient of a NAACP award and he's a Democrat, but that will also work heavily against him too.

Are you sure Brown is a Democrat? I thought the party of Howard Dean and John Kerry and Cynthia McKinney had higher standards than that.
