Imker: ‘Realist’ for doing smart things

The end of the campaign season is near. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to share with the people of Peachtree City the accomplishments and decisions I’ve made while a council member.

In every case my choice has been and will continue to be based on what is in the best interest of the citizens.

I have accepted no campaign contributions. Nor did I two years ago. I wanted to emphasize that I work for the citizens and no one else. Read More»

Allen: Will work for low taxes, consensus

I believe in the following principles of low taxes, keeping our communities safe from crime and limited government.

While on the Peachtree City Council I will:

• Work to gather consensus on our common goals with other Peachtree City Council members.

• Seek input from you, Peachtree City’s citizens, on issues that are important to all of us so that we can work towards our common goals. Read More»

Learnard: Imker is a ‘budget genius’

When I read the headline story in The Citizen on Oct. 29, I was shocked. George Dienhart, a candidate for City Council Post 2, stated his assumption in the race for City Council Post 1 – a race in which he is not involved – that Steve Allen would be easier for me to work with on City Council than Eric Imker would be.

I would like to thank The Citizen for allowing me to clarify my own position. In the two years I have served on City Council Post 3, I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Eric Imker. Read More»

Allen offers reason, reconciliation

I made a new friend today.

I met Mr. Steve Allen today after church. We talked for over an hour about his love of family in particular and his appreciation of and concern for all the things that make Peachtree City, Ga., the special place that we all cherish.

Mr. Allen is a gentleman by all contemporary standards. His interest in our city is the interest that any of us have for our home. He truly is concerned about the direction in which some would detract us from the original plan that is a proven success. Read More»

Fleisch: I support Imker

Peachtree City would do well to re-elect Eric Imker for City Council Post 1.

I have had the privilege of working with Eric over the past two years and have known him to be an honest man with only the best interests of the city of Peachtree City at heart.

His ideas for the budget have been thought-provoking for both his fellow council members and the city staff. He has gone through the budget line by line and is always forthright in offering his opinions. He is definitely not a politician and that is one of the reasons why I enjoy working with him so much.

Allen is independent thinker, not a politician

Steve Allen believes we need to do things better on the Peachtree City Council. His goals for this city are simple: keeping our home values up, our quality of life here in this city, and to keep our village plan secure.

Mr. Allen is an independent thinker with good business sense who will make decisions based on the needs of this city, and not the needs of a political career.

He will give credit to the people who really deserve it and not take credit for their work. Read More»

Cochran: Want to reach out to F’ville businesses

Thanks to my friends for your overwhelming support. I treasure you.

As you head to the polls remember:

About Fayetteville:

• Our police department received national accreditation attributed to the leadership of Chief Heaton.

• Our ISO rating improved due to accomplishments of our Fire Department resulting in lower homeowner’s insurance premiums.

• A large portion of the city’s budget is allocated to public safety to insure our officers have the most up-to-date equipment. Read More»

Why F’ville Council needs Cochran

I first met Cathy five years ago when I starting banking at her place of work. Since then, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Cathy and her family as we are both members of Liberty Baptist Church. Cathy is a wonderful Christian lady who loves the Lord. That love shines bright wherever she goes and so I’m writing to tell you why Fayetteville needs Cathy on the City Council. Read More»

Some local politicians driving us toward regional governance

I have been speaking to citizen groups all over metro Atlanta regarding the cliff we are destined to fall off if regional governance and taxation proposals take hold.

Local Fayette residents found the meeting minutes from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) meeting where former-Chairman Jack Smith and Fayetteville Mayor Ken Steele voted in favor of the Concept 3 regional mass transit plan that included commuter rail, bus rapid transit and regular bus service in Fayette County.

Both Smith and Steele admitted to voting in favor to the mass transit plan that included Fayette County. Read More»

Imker best qualified, proven asset to PTC

The ancients thought that the purpose of the brain was to cool the blood. Perhaps we should use our brains, cool the rhetoric, and focus on the qualifications for Peachtree City Council Post #1.

I find Eric Imker to be the best qualified candidate.

His approach to budget management is refreshing, especially coming from someone who is not a politician but an engineer and a program manager. Read More»
