Mayor-elect says thanks to Steele

As I write this, I have had a couple of days to reflect on my recent victory in the Fayetteville mayoral race and many expressions of gratitude are in order.

First, I would like to express my gratitude to all the voters who took the time to go to the polls and vote, including those who voted for my opponent. Everybody has an opinion, but yours only counts if you make the effort to vote.

Second, thank you to all who allowed a yard sign to be placed in their yard.

Third, thank you to those who took time to wave signs at various locations around town. Read More»

Voters spoke clearly on bypass, transit

The election results in Fayetteville were another decisive indication of the voters’ desires to put an end to foolish road projects like the West Fayetteville Bypass, to keep financially unproductive mass transit out of Fayette County and to be wary of Fayette County’s inclusion in any type of regional governance that could adversely affect home rule.

With each election, each West Bypass excuse is exposed as empty

Our latest election told us what we already know. There’s really no doubt about where the people of Fayette County stand on issues like the West Fayetteville Bypass and transit buses.

How many times do we have to tell Chairman Herb Frady, Commissioner Lee Hearn and Commissioner Robert Horgan the West Fayetteville Bypass is not needed or wanted? Read More»

Councilman-elect Dienhart invites Imker, Haddix to truce meeting

As Election Day and its related politics recede behind us, we can now look forward to the hard work that begins in January.

I came into this election promising complete transparency, open communication and promising to help end the discord within the Peachtree City Council. Here is how I intend to do that.

Transparency and communication – I think you will find that I will be the most approachable city councilman this city has ever seen. To facilitate communication I have transitioned my website (Dienhartforptc.blogspot.com) from a campaign site to a communication tool. Read More»

Bost: Sorry about mistake in F’ville election flyer

I realized after the political flyer went to the printer that the billboard in the political information piece was not in the Fayetteville city limits, even though it surely does look like it is.

As it turns out, it appears that former County Commissioner Eric Maxwell’s lawsuit against the county might be responsible for the unsightly billboard and not the City Council in Fayetteville. I apologize for any confusion.

Certainly, I don’t think the incumbents who lost in Fayetteville are going to blame the posting of that billboard for their loss in the election. Read More»

To the 81% eligible in Fayetteville: Why didn’t you vote Nov. 8?

On Nov. 8, 2011, citizens of the city of Fayetteville went to the polls. Let me correct that: 19 percent of the citizens went to the polls.

This letter is to the 81 percent of you who decided that this year’s city elections were just not that important for you to go to the polls.

The late Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill, always said, “All politics is local.” The local level is where you can make a difference and have the most impact. Read More»

Criticism of Zac Brown’s proposed camp is misinformed personal attack

I am writing this in response to the Nov. 8, 2011 letter to the editor entitled, “Brown’s ‘camp’ will destroy resident’s peace.”

Mrs. Saul’s letter is full of misinformation and unwarranted personal attacks. It states that Mr. Brown has set out to “destroy our way of life.”

I’m a resident in close proximity to the proposed site of Camp Southern Ground and nothing could be further from the truth. Read More»
