Dienhart is the right choice for PTC Council Post 2

I recently had the opportunity to contrast the two candidates for Peachtree City Council Post 2: George Dienhart and Scott Brown.

Dienhart was certainly the more impressive candidate. Of the two men, Dienhart appears to have a plan that supports our village concept while bringing new jobs to the city. He also had a plan for how to deal with the current City Council controversy.

I believe that it is going to take a strong leader to deal with the energetic personalities of Don Haddix and Erik Imker. After hearing the two men speak, Dienhart was the obvious choice. Read More»

Golf carts & handicapped parking: something’s wrong

Do I like golf carts?

No, when you are driving down Spear Road at the speed limit and come around a curve and all of a sudden there is a golf cart in the road going 10 mph what an idiot.

Now lets talk about the newly renovated shopping center next to Kmart. I never shop in Peachtree City; parking space is the problem. When I had open heart surgery, I was in a coma for a month and in the hospital for three months and I had to learn to walk again, so handicapped parking is a must for me.

My favorite hair dresser is now in a salon near Kmart, so I went there for a hair cut. Read More»

Our interest in your actions originated out of distrust and a yearning to save the community we hold so dear.

Any budgetary process, whether its your personal finances or the management of a county government, depends upon your ability to make modifications as the economic environment changes. Read More»

Brown: 2 of us tried to stop wasteful county spending, but 3 said no

The frustration level is extremely high at the county government level. First, a new ordinance was passed on a 3-1 vote to force citizens to register to speak at government meetings. The new ordinance is so broad in its restriction of free speech that any comments that might embarrass the chairman or the other commissioners are now cause for removing a citizen from a public meeting (I am not making this up).
