Dan Tennant is mean

The filth in the newspapers is a direct result of Bob Lenox’s ego. He doesn’t have any class like his predecessors. Don’t get me wrong, Fred Brown and Joel Cowan knew how to work the system but they didn’t roll in the dirt like Mr. Lenox. Fred Brown has a very limited education and yet he’s still seems to be able to act in good taste in public settings. We all know that you can train a monkey to act right but Mr. Lenox appears hopeless.

Dan Tennant is about as unsophisticated as they come. Beyond his lack of style, Mr. Tennant has a difficult time with moral decision making. Mr. Tennant has a real weakness for “kissing-up” to almost anyone who can help him up the ladder. The ultimate lapse of honorability for Mr. Tennant was when he went running to the political action committee boys and started begging. When his re-election day came due, everyone laughed as they left him alone, stroking him only long enough to get what they wanted out of him.

Let’s clarify something Mr. Greg T. Madison, aka Watchdog, aka Dan Tennant. Did you say that Dan Tennant kept his “stance on annexation” or did you say that he “took off his pants for annexation” because there is a difference? We can believe that Mr. Tennant took off his pants but it is hard to imagine him keeping his stance on anything. Does the name Anita Hill ring a bell? For sure Mr. Tennant knows about a little woman, bent on revenge, ready to eat his lunch. She's going to spill the beans! Mr. Tennant is the neurotic little boy that goes running to the teacher tattling on everyone (watchdog) telling bad little tales absent of truth. Mr. Tennant is mean. Mr. Tennant is bad. I could have sworn he said “pants”.

We'll that post made absolutely no sense...But I can guarantee you that Greg T. Madison isn't Tennant...Nice try though...Without me having to seach too far, who are you backing Mrs. Johnson? Instead of saying what you don't like about a candidate (in a round about way) why don't you tell everybody who you like and why so we can debate that...Just a tossup you sound like a Harold backer...But could be a "Brown" noser as well, hard to tell...And Anita Hill what's that all about? If you want to air the laundry then make sure you add the fabric softener and air it all out...Don't hold back...

Dan Tennant has never swayed from his promises. Dan Tennant has worked hard and a lot of times without support from others to help the city. An example of this is right now, despite everyone else being bought out and saying annexation is good, Tennant has kept his stance strong and is strongly against annexation. I challenge you to find a stance that Dan has misled the public on. You say is not smart, but what I get from that is that he is not your normal politician, he will tell you straight up how it is even it's not what we want to hear. That my friend, is honorable. I find it interesting no one attacks what his views are but rather "Dan Tennant is mean".

First off, there is no Paula Johnson. There is no Tate Christian. There is no Rex Kaigler. There is no Fred Cowan. There is no Annie Caroline Fritz. The current mayor, for whatever sick and bizarre reason assumes each of these names to throw shots at people. The guy is truly mental.

Look at the title of this blog. Dan Tennant is Mean. She/he goes on to trash a bunch of people and then throw up on Tennant. I have news for you. Tennant has more class, more principles and more sense than Mr. Brown will ever dream of having, and I'm not even voting for the guy unless Logsdon drops dead.

If Steve Brown wins this election, the old Watchdog is going to be sailing away to determine if there is any faith left in humanity.

In the meantime Mr. Brown, you are a psychotic, unfiar mean spirited person who belongs is an institution. And they need to throw away the key.

Now...now...now. Be nice. Consider that poor Steve has always had an identiy problem. Remember the annexation "thing" where he personally and privately tried to negotiate the West Village with Weiland? When finally confronted, he state he negotiated as "citizen Brown," not "mayor Brown." And remember when he violated the ethics laws by politicing against the SPLOST on Comcast? He clearly stated that he was acting, yet again, as "citizen Brown," not "mayor Brown." The fact that the caption read "Steve Brown, Mayor Peachtree City" was simply a "mistake." The fact that Wieland thought they were dealing with "mayor Brown" was a "mistake." Truth is, Brown isn't sure who he is! So be nice. He probablly doesn't actually know that he has taken on all these "personalities." Give him a break. The part time mayor job may not come with a health package allowing him access to the necessary "medication" for someone who has problems with "identity." So just understand him. Oh, de-elect him and suggest he get a job with benefits.

Nope, I am following the rules and only writing under one name. I speak for no one but myself. I represent no one but myself. I am not a developer, special interest group, or anyone else. I am simply a concerned citizen who doesn't agree with the current mayor or with Rapson. I am simply someone who thinks that Brown should be held accountable for the lies and deceit that he has brought to us. I am someone who thinks he should be held accountable for his failure to produce on his promises of 2001. Believe me, don't believe me, I don't care. But I don't intimidate and as a "good citizen" I believe, as Steve Brown used to believe, that we need to question our elected leaders to ensure appropriate representation. Brown forgot that "promise" along with annexation, integrity, fiscal responibility, ethics, and working with surrounding communities. So I am working to get him fired! Oh, by the way, Rapson is two faced also. He isn't as bad as Brown but he certainly has trouble living up to his word. So he, too, needs to go.

It is obvious that you are a political tool for the Developer crowd. Why is it that you don't support a candidate? You just trash on the ones that can't be controlled. You'll be happy with 4 of those Mayor candidates because they, like you, are tools. You and Hamster Fritz are transparent.

How do you know I don't support a candidate? Funny thing about this free country we live in, I don't have to share my political support with some anonymous know nothing. If you want an adult and reasonable political debate, try writing a Letter to the Editor and signing it. I'd be happy to meet you on an open debate forum. But then, everyone would know who you really are. As for all this about Carol Fritz, it might surprise you, and everyone else, to know that she doesn't even reside here anymore. She and her husband moved to Florida. So whatever drug you are on, I suggest that you get the perscription changed. As for trying to "control" candidates, PLEASE!!! I simply want my taxes to be reasonable, my elected officials to be honest... You know what, trying to reason with "someone" like you is a waste of my time.

Dana Kinser is right, Carol, you are Birdman, too, and you do “sound like a DirectPAC player.” Carol Fritz “Hamster”, “Birdman” ---- please explain why when you got into office you got the big head. You went to the dark side and become the developer’s gal [[[[DELETED and WARNED]]]]. Next election time you got beaten like a yard dog. This is why you ended up in the Fayette Political Graveyard along with Rower, Vile and many others. We only wish you had moved to Mexico. [[[[[[[DELETED and WARNED]]]]]you would not be contributing your trademark, negative pettiness. Go take your discount meal coupons from DIRECTPAC/DAPC and go away.

Look "KraftyFla," You couldn't be any more wrong. I am NOT Carol Fritz! But I will say, Bob, (may I call you by your first name Bob?) That your comments in the above blog are truly disgusting and truly speaks to your real character. This blog is insulting enough, but to say what you say is even low for this forum. Bob, you should be ashamed of yourself. Your comments about [[[[DELETED]]]]] are truly low class. Now, I know you will still think I am Carol, but, Bob, I assure you I am not. Even you know that Carol Fritz has moved to Fl. What makes you think she would engage in this crap from Fl? You guys give yourselves too much credit. Most people really don't care about this. Why would someone not living here bother. So get over it.

This is ironic coming from an anonymous "Birdman". Why don't you reveal your true identity? Maybe "Birdman" is really chicken. Call someone else out to ID themselves, but still hides himself.

Hmmmm. Does sound like a DirectPAC player.

Sure, I'd be happy to, but would miss out on all the fun. By the way Dana, if you weren't such a lemming following your hero King Steve over the proverbial cliff, you would realize that not all of the thousands in this city who oppose him are DirectPac. Not all the thousands who oppose him are "developers." Not all of the thousands who oppose him are "Lenox supporters." In fact, if you do a little research, you will find that many who oppose Brown also opposed Lenox. That's the irony. We, as Brown so highly bragged about doing, are only... how did he put it..."stealing a tool used throughout our country's history..." an writing letters to the editor. Funny, when he did it it was "patriotic," when anyone he doesn't like does it, it's...well you add the nasty insult, you and his cronies are very good at it. By the way, enjoy the "lemming jump" at the end.
As for my "anonymity," I am simply doing as everyone else is here, adding to the muckraking. I'd be happy to get rid of my "handle" but only if everyone else would. You know that that won't happen.

Well Birdman, you are wrong on my support and the desire to follow. I think you need to do some homework.

That being said, I do believe that Mayor Brown has done some wonderful things with this city. I also do believe that his responses may have been uncalled for in some instances, but at the same time, he has been a walking talking target for people who would rather spend their time complaining than doing something about it.

How involved are you in your community?

First, let me thank you for trying to bring this "thread" back to civility and reason. I actually have been very involved with this community since I moved here. I feel that it is important to be so. I have volunteered a significant amount of time to a variety of programs including sports, scouts, and the school mentor program. In addition I have followed local politics since I believe they have a direct effect on me. I was vocal in many issues prior to Brown even moving here. I will also say I am not a "friend of developers" as Brown would insist. But, neither do I hate all developers. Afterall, it was developers who built my house, the cart paths system, the sports complexes, etc. Having said that, I think this city has always had an excellent plan and has held the developers to that plan. Brown's rants aside, over the years this city has been well developed. As for Brown, my opposition to him is because of what he has done to us. Plain and simple, he has spent a tremendous amount of money on unneeded items while ignoring needed items. One easy example, he gave us an Assitant City Manager at the cost of $106,000 per year. At a time when the city has effectively reached buildout, he institutes a very expensive new position. In the meantime we are short firefighters. How many firefighters could that $106,000 have given us? Bottom line, I am involved, that's why I am on this site. If you want a comprehensive discussion of why I oppose Brown, give me your email and I will be happy to enter a reasonable debate. But thanks for redirecting this blog to respectable discussion again.

I think you will find that we actually have a lot in common on these issues.

Thanks for clarifying them and I anxiously await Tuesday.

Steve Brown's constant accusations, innuendo, insults, etc. aside, I hope most of us, regardless of position, have the same thing in common, the betterment of PTC. I also await Tues. Hopefully a new era will begin where we will regain the goodwill of the citizenry after the removal of our biggest detractor, Brown. Again, thanks for returning us to civility with your blogs.

Man, I go away for a couple days and it starts getting emotional. Glad everything calmed down by itself. Good for you and birdman.

Speaking of emotion, scruffy and the hamster have been tossed by Cal. Remember their thing was Cal endorsing Brown simply to keep the buzz alive and generate more advertising revenue?

Scruffy called me last night, so this is actually his question. And he can read, just not post.

What do all think of Cal endorsing Brown? Doesn't matter who you are for - what do you think of having an activist/newspaper editor in an election who is supposed to be an "impartial" observer?


Submitted by dkinser on Sat, 11/05/2005 - 10:52am.

Cal is entitled to his opinion, and just as some business owners put campaign signs outside their business, Cal is doing the same with his.

That being said, controversy is news and Cal is in the business of reporting controversy. With Brown in office, Cal is guaranteed to sell newspapers for 4 more years.

So for the sake of a simple endorsement, he is shoring up his revenue for the next 4 years.
