The Lackluster Logsdon Legacy

Spear Road Guy's picture

Mike King nailed the horrible Logsdon legacy in another post. I think King got a bad rap for being associated with Logsdon in the last election.

Okay, before bad_ptc and johenry rip into me, I supported Harold Logsdon when he ran for mayor. I admitted I'd made an error the first time the mayor raised taxes.

The sad truth is Mayor Logsdon has raised taxes every year. He recently raised all the city fees too.

He gave us big box stores when we didn't need them.

The mayor has lied on a bunch of subjects from tax increases to TDK. He's the worst liberal Democrat we've ever had in office.

I'm ashamed I ever asked anyone to vote for the bum. He can't even open the golf cart bridge on Highway 54 that's been sitting idle for three years.

The developer crowd owns our politicans.

Vote Republican

I'm curious as to your answers. What areas would you have cut?

As to TDK, it was voted down..

And to the Council's selling of the roads, I doubt I would agree with that one, but it did take 3 votes. I'm still not sure that we need to maintain roads for developers, when they own the property all around them. That makes them defacto driveways. Frankly, the Walmart is a much bigger eyesore to me than anything that will be built on this property.

I'll end by saying, when you find the perfect person to be Mayor of PTC, let me know. Smiling

Hope all is well with you and yours. Thank you for your complement in an earlier posting.

You are correct regarding the legacy of the mayor because I believe that he had ample opportunity and the wherewithall to accomplish far more than his predessor, but elected to listen to the vocal developer types. Had he stayed with his campaign promises, you and I would not be having this conversation.

It is not surprising to me that he has done this because in my opimion he views himself as a leader whose arrogance will only allow him to listen to a select few and those being his backers, if you will. You and I are but two of a great many Peachtree City citizens who supported him, but now would not vote for him should he run for dogcatcher. Word has it that his ego has him considering a run for the state office since he seems to be spending quite a bit of time at the capital, hopefully not on city time.

Keep posting.

Just my two cents worth.

Boo-hoo your property taxes went up $40. Big whoop! You'd rather have sissy cops and crumbling cart paths I guess.

TDK is dead to EVERYONE except you.

So pardon me for not dosing up on your tablets of paranoia.

I am with you on the big box situation though. Selling the roads is pure folly and one more traffic light on that corridor will turn out to be the worst Logsdon legacy.

I agree with you about the $40 (although I'm not sure it was $40) increase. What bothers me the most is how the mayor blatantly lied about lowering taxes. The guy would toss his own mother out of the boat to keep it from sinking.

Don't forget, the only reason he opposed TDK was the state transportation people were forcing it to be four lanes. He told me if the road could be built two lanes he would still do it, regardless of the development on the Coweta side.

Selling the roads was a croc.
