Looking For A Genuine Conservative On The Ballot
Perhaps I’ve just grown too cynical, but I think the breathtaking hypocrisy of our local politicians is simply hilarious.
We have Zack Matheny’s advertisements on billboards and in this organ, which highlight his first priority as “Public Safety.” Really? This guy got so drunk while driving that he had to pull into a Harris Teeter parking lot and sleep behind the wheel. But now he’s all about public safety. Yeah, right.
And longtime Oak Ridge Councilman George McClellan is advertising that he will oppose any property tax increase. Good! I look forward to him proposing a massive property tax rate cut here in Oak Ridge to offset the big increase in the valuation of our homes. But I won’t hold my breath because this RINO has never lifted a finger to grant a teaspoon of tax relief to the people of Oak Ridge, and he’s been on the council for years (decades?). What a hypocrite. We have a property tax three times that of Summerfield – and it has never bothered him before. But now he’s “fighting for our values.”
It must be an election year. If I can find a genuine conservative, I’ll vote for him, or her. (Margaret Thatcher was my hero.)
I too feel your pain Austin Morris. We all should use our votes wisely in 2022.
Do not let this happen in North Carolina or anywhere else. This is Satan trying to take over our children he will not do it! If enough of us pray he will not take over our children oh my goodness look at what is going on right in front of your cars people! On the news look at that man’s eyes!This is in the Bible please God watch over our children!!!
I see your point! How about this- Two different men running for Oak Ridge Council were campaigning in our neighborhood, 27410 where we vote for the Greensboro CIty Council not Oak Ridge Council. Do they know where they are?
Ed Melvin was Danny’s right hand man. We need a Sheriff that isn’t so easily deceived. Phil Byrd is the right person for Sheriff of Guilford County.
I don’t know who’d make the best Sheriff, but the abundance of candidates will split the anti-Rogers vote and make it easier for the incumbent to be re-elected.
Austin, they will narrow it down in the primaries to one republican and one democrat, which will be Rogers. You could always end up with an independent, but otherwise, there will only be the two candidates come election time.
LC, Melvin quit as soon as he saw how incompetent Rogers was. That is why he is running against him and not endorsing him.
Oh, right. Thanks for setting me right Don. Sorry!
The large number of candidates running for REPUBLICAN Sheriff in the PRIMARY on May 7th will elect ONE candidate to run against the few DEMOCRATIC candidates running against incumbent Danny Rogers in that same PRIMARY. IF ROGERS is selected as the choice for the Democratic candidate he will run against the ONE choice made by the Republicans and the two of them will run in the ELECTION in November. There won’t be a bunch of split votes then, only two choices to make. The only issue is that there are often people who tend to vote more often for Democrats in this area, HOWEVER, people haven’t been thrilled with Rogers’ outcomes so we may be surprised by the results IF the Republican candidate RUNS A CAMPAIGN of integrity, honesty, class, decorum, and doesn’t get down in the mud. We want to hear about how the candidate will improve the results of the Sheriff’s Department not harp on what Rogers is doing wrong, but how he will use the funds to improve coverage of the Districts, improve investigations, improve hiring, improve Deputy retention, improve employee ability to do their jobs professionally, improve jail operations, improve safety at the jails and courthouse, improve Deputy safety, improve the safety of citizens, improve the process of Conceal and Carry permits, etc. The best man for this job is Phil Byrd for Sheriff of Guilford County based on his training, knowledge, and mature attitude.
