I Hope Everyone Reads This...

I am writing in regard to the upcoming runoff election for the Fayette County Commission, Post 3 seat. If you have read my previous comments, you know I'm for Peter Pfeifer. I, for one, am proud to support a candidate who is so well respected and endorsed by so many of the ordinary, everyday citizens, like myself. After all, we are who is he working for. We are the ones he is representing. The majority of people I have spoken with appreciate Peter's efforts to inform us of what is going on and his determination to fight for what he believes is right for this county. They respect his experience.

There is an all-out effort by the current commissioners and probably others, to get Lee Hearn elected. Poor Lee is just a pawn in their game. A means to their end. He is being told what to do and when to do it. My impression of most of the elected officials who endorse Hearn is one of a bunch of egotistical people who just want to be left alone to do what they want - no matter how it might affect the general population of the county. They think they are above the law and above having to answer to the citizens. You might want to ask the residents of Peachtree City how they feel about an endorsement by Mayor Harold Logsdon! Hearn's campaign manager and the rest of "the group" are counting on us being ignorant and ill-informed so that we will believe anything they say. A short time ago Commission Chairman Jack Smith claimed to be writing truthfully. He wasn't. He twisted information to fit his purpose. Lee Hearn wrote a lengthly explanation addressing his misuse of a "P card". It wasn't complete or accurate. They all must have the same writer! I believe they think that if they write something that sounds plausable we will believe it because we don't know any better. Many times we don't know better...we don't have the time to research, nor is it necessarily our responsibility to know. We count on them to do the right thing.

This runoff election is very important. It is the difference between totally losing control of our local government and at least keeping our foot in the door. Yes, Pfeifer is only one vote - but we have a voice too. When we know what is happening we can e-mail our commissioners, call, or write and let them know how we feel. We can speak at the meetings. Maybe they will listen. Without Peter Pfeifer in office, I doubt we will have this opportunity.

Peter Pfeifer has worked hard for us and would like to continue to do so. Now it is our turn to work for him. All we have to do is take a few minutes to vote. We need to let it be known that we care about what is happening at the local level and that we want true representation. We want an open government and not one that is making important decisions "behind closed doors". Tuesday, August 5th, is the day we can do just that.

I guess we didn't respond to your rant or elect the right guy, so now we will find out about Hearn's ties, sponsors, handlers and abilities.

So what's he gonna do? Vote with Eric and Jack to burn the Constitution?

Maybe he'll vote with Frady and Horgan to make stupid the language of Fayette County.

Why should we be so scared of Lee Hearn?

But I'll tell you why we should be so scared of Hearn. He and Horgan are simply not well educated and have no political experience, period. And because they don't know what they don't know, they will be easy to con into doing whatever the other three greasers want. That's putting it in a nice way.

In a not nice way, the reason to be scared of Hearn is that he will give away our tax dollars for cushy golden parachutes for county employees like Krakeel, the new 6th Commissioner.

Hold onto your wallets, folks. Ignorance is expensive and this next two years is going to cost us.
