Early voting this coming week in PTC, Tyrone

Election day is right around the corner but there’s no need for you to wait until then.

Those who have already made up their mind on the SPLOST and city elections can vote at the libraries in Peachtree City and Tyrone starting Monday and running through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

But don’t wait until Monday, Nov. 2 as no early voting can take place then as officials prepare for the big Nov. 3 election day.

Early voting will be an ultra convenience for some voters because they will be able to vote on their city elections and the countywide SPLOST at the same time.

Some voters, if they wait until election day, will have to go to two different precincts to vote on both issues because some city precincts are different from those in the county, officials have said.

With the election nearing, I would like to start another lively debate. Who should win the PTC Council seats? We all have a horse in the mayoral race, but these seats are just as important. What do you think?

My choice:

POST 1: Barker


POST 4: Dyer

Haddix: Education Irrelevant?
Yesterday I asked Mr. Haddix to respond to the lack of educational information provided by the Civic Association for the Forum. His response:

"As far as the education thing goes, what I did in college 35 years ago .... seems a bit irrelevant now"

With that answer, Mr. Haddix insulted the 61% of Peachtree City citizens who DO NOT think that education is irrelevant!
• Bachelor's degree or higher: 46.2%
• Graduate or professional degree: 15.1%

And leads me to the question: What IS his educational background? He has still not responded. But I will not give up. A yearning for the facts: something I learned in college.

I could live with Dyer and Barker to answer your question about who should win.

Learnerd is the only logical choice for Post 3 - Boone? are you kidding me??

Ok, answering your question ----
Who will win is probably the women. All I hear from everyone (not here, but out on the streets) is how important a female majority is. OK, I could live with even that. 'Cept for Cyndi.

So, here is what I predict on the who WILL WIN:

Maybe Cyndi, but probably Don.

Who should win is:
And for Mayor - Scott

You asked - there's my answer

Yeah that scares me. I know that Beth and Kim are open about raising taxes. This is only my second election here, but it all seems like a dramatic popularity contest. I have talked to supporters of several candidates and most of the time they don't even know who is running against their candidate, let alone why I should vote for them.

I still have faith in the system though..

There are a lot of folks on this blog that are going to work really hard to influence your vote one way or another. Read the info from all candidates and make up your own mind. I have made my choice and I have tried not to let anything said on these blogs influence my vote in any way. Just because something is in a blog or in writing doesn’t make it true. Best bet... meet the people running and make up your own mind. It's sound advice. You will know who the right choice is for you.

Prince, I too have faith in the system.

However, the challenge is that most citizens, if they even bother to vote, make their decisions based on the "fluff" contained in candidate's carefully prepared campaign materials - even when their campaign "promises" are inconsistent with their voting records.

There are some qualified candidates in this election - both male and female. There are also some candidates who have had "Extreme Makeovers" in preparation for this election. Only those voters who do their own research will know the truth before they vote.

PTC's future is counting on it.
