The Logsdon legacy: indecent exposure

We have been exposed to his lies, deceitful acts and bumbling behavior. There ought to be a law against it!

Your taxes are not getting reduced.

I agree with the other bloggers with the fact we have yet to see the worst of the TDK rip-off.

We are paying for the development authority con game for the next 30 years.

There was only one tree in front of the Highway 74 Waffle House and they cut it down too!

Mayor Logsdon seems content to belly-up at the Y-Knot and knockdown one after the other while we sit at home and nurse the stings from his corrupt government.

Where are all of those Logsdon supporters now? When I go to bridge twice a week it’s funny how no one is saying what a great guy Harold Logsdon is anymore. A few have begrudgingly admitted Steve Brown was right. The rest change the subject or sit there with their mouths closed.

The Logsdon legacy we be remembered as the time we did the most damage to a once wonderful community.

JOHENRY, after reading many of your post, I can not understand where such hate comes from. Many of the subjects you blog were set in motion before Mr. Logsdon was Mayor, but you blame him and never the previous regime. Believe it or not the majority of citizens in Peachtree City voted Mr. Logsdon in as Mayor. After the past two years I would vote for Mr. Logsdon again. Your blogs serve no purpose but venting your sour grapes.

I think she must be a relative of Bob Lemox. I must correct you, a majority that VOTED. Not a majoity of PTC citizens. By the way...He ran on a platform of paying that $1,000,000 bucks to the banks. He didn't lie.
You seriously would vote for him again? I liked Dar and I still like Steve for the "gadfly" effect.

No doubt there are people like you who benefit from having someone like a Harold Logsdon in office.

Many of the developers and Direct PAC profiteers are overjoyed to have Mayor Logsdon in office. The rest of us are very annoyed.

The fact he openly lied to many who voted for him is his legacy. For some reason McDonoughDawg keeps defending the mayor. Does he really think TDK has been stopped? Get real.

MikeK is RobMudcat W. Morgan reborn. Blame Steve for everything. Just have to love the Bob Lenox Direct PAC types who cried and whined that Steve was killing TDK and now that Steve was proven right about the sneaky development deals they now say it was Steve who kept TDK going. Which is it boys? You are lying one way of the other. Of course, you are Logsdon supporters and lying comes easily.

The grapes are very sour.

You won't answer direct questions, I guess you have no answers.

Where have I said TDK was stopped? Derailed is a better word. Either back up your blogs, or find another hobby.

Here is what YOU said:

"I've seen one Council put the brakes on TDK expansion into Coweta County, and it's the one in office now." (it's posted below)

So what did you mean double-talking McDonoughDawg? You apply "the brakes" to "stop" the car don't you. Are you saying Logsdon and council yielded for a moment? Are you saying they were passing with the brake applied?

Your flag is flapping which ever way the wind is blowing big fella. Your foolish pride is getting in the way. You put it to your mouth, but I guess you didn't inhale.

Are you denying that TDK has been stalled somewhat? Or are you saying it's on schedule, the same schedule it's been on since the 70's? EVERY one was for the road until we saw exactly what Coweta approved on the other side of Line Creek. Would you have been happier if the current Council had fast tracked the road after finding out what Coweta had planned? I assume that would have been better in your eyes. More to campaign about.

Having the brakes put on means to slow down. Shutting your car off makes it totally stop. We can't just stop roads in PTC forever, just because we have a 4 lane to I-85. East/West access across Line Creek is going to have to be dealt with at some point for sure. What recommendations do you have in the future?

Your initial blog blamed Logsdon for the trees that were cut down on in front of Waffle House, you have failed to address any of my questions regarding the 74 South expansion. I assume you have no answers.

You sure do think Logsdon can get things done fast. You must be impressed, you talk about it all the time. He's been in office less than 2 years and he already has the 74 expansion already done. Do you really think that was Logsdon's doing? Do you really think 74 didn't need to be widened? Do you really think that the STATE didn't already own right-of-way on 74 south of 54? Show me where any CITY property was involved with this latest expansion. Where you this upset when 74 was 4 laned north to I-85?

I've seen one Council put the brakes on TDK expansion into Coweta County, and it's the one in office now. If you can dispute this, let's hear it.

The tone of these blogs is all to easy to peg.

Obviously you have a need to vent your frustrations today. Your characterization of Mr Logsdon bellying up at Y-Knot while you suffer lends me to believe that you are indeed a Steve Brown chrony or actually the man himself. I agree that each of us who commute the Hwy 74-I-85 intersection will suffer the additional traffic and associated headaches, but consider this: If the bridge were not built and Mcintosh Villiage becomes a reality, would the traffic on Hwy 74 be any less dense since these folks requiring access to I-85 would still use Ga Hwy 54 to gain access to Hwy 74?
You claim that Steve Brown was right all along without being specific shows your shallow nature. Do your homework and you will learn that it was Mr Brown as Mayor who let the contracts for a city street to become involved in GRTA possibly withholding funding for future road improvement.
I have no intention of trying to build Mr Logsdon's reputation nor denegrate Mr Brown, however when you sling mud while frustrated, it becomes easy to omit factual information especially when there, perhaps is an underlying agenda.

I've tried to support the mayor as much as the next guy, but TDK is wrecked. Now Harold is in the middle of another situation his mouth created because he said he would never do four lanes.

As far as the mayor partaking in the rite of alcoholic libations, MIKEK must not be a Y-Knot fan. Harold was up their with his golfing compadres quite a bit. I don't see anything wrong with the guy drinking at that Y-Knot. As long as he is sober enough to drive, who cares? My God, he's not up there the entire day and it's not everyday, so who cares?

As far as Steve Brown goes, I think he has more power now than he did when he was mayor. He's got people's attention and if your honest he's probably more responsible for wrecking TDK than anyone else with his constant letters in the newspaper.

The mayor of the town shouldn't be carousing at the local smoke-filled bar. There's something to be said for keeping a good public image.

By the way, how did you know he was sober enough to drive??? Did you administer a breathalizer (sp?) test on him? The City Manager was carting around drunk and the mayor just gave him a slap on the wrist. What a poor example they are.

Submitted by bladderq on Tue, 07/10/2007 - 4:24pm.

I think it is slanderous the way the Y-knott gits kicked around. I am in there fairly often & have never seen the mayor. I think it sticks in some craw that they made a contribution.

"The mayor of the town shouldn't be carousing at the local smoke-filled bar. There's something to be said for keeping a good public image."

My opinion of a "good public image" would be not to git caught in a baptist pew or at a Republican Women's luncheon.

Exactly where do you approve of someone going? Is that what this is about?

Sonny Perdue wants to be Vice President.

Lynn Westmoreland wants to be Governor.

I used to be in the mainstream, voting for Sam Nunn and George Busbee, but not anymore.

I don't know. If Sonny and Lynn can run for higher office, then I guess it makes perfect sense that Harold be elected to Congress.

Are you really serious about Westmoreland? Where will he make his formal announcement? On the Colbert Report -- Comedy Central??
