Haddix in action - please watch video
If you want to see your elected Mayor Haddix in action, please watch the video of the Peachtree City Council Meeting tonight (November 3, 2011). What you want to watch is a timeline between 31:30 and 33:30 toward the end. It is at www.peachtree-city.org/videos (or http://livestre.am/16ZIN). In this two minute clip, everything you need to know about why our Council is in chaos will be clear. Hizzoner is a bully who is rude and talks over people when they dare oppose him. It is also evident in this brief two minutes that he hasn't a clue as to what the appropriate rules of order are at a City Council Meeting. Also interesting is Haddix's stated reason for his protest - it is election time. However, the Mayor's seat is not up for election for two more years! Talk about evidence of how important it is to him to get his buddy Allen elected... incredible. Please review and see for yourself.
To better understand the reason the Mayor is so adamant in this video that Council Member Learnard not be allowed to reveal the DAPC budget information - that is described below:
In a blog on The Citizen, Haddix was supporting Dienhart's campaign and the Development Authority of Peachtree City. Haddix accused Council Member Imker of lying and his quote is "Just like he claimed, at the Debate, Council alloted $7K to DAPC. Totally false claim. It was their money carried over from last year because they didn't have enough to keep meeting and do anything. It was NOT City money given to them."
It is no wonder Haddix did not want this to come out or be allowed for discussion. It appears he was either misleading the citizens or just does not understand the budget. It was confirmed in this video that DAPC was funded and paid NEW MONEY of over $7,000 this budget year. DAPC has achieved nothing for many year's so this is just lost taxpayer dollars.
It is also interesting to note Haddix's stated reason for his protest - it is election time. The Mayor did not want this issue aired and claimed this discussion of DAPC to be political and associated with the election. Therefore, his position was it should not take place in the City Council Chambers. It looks to me like Council Member Learnard was just making sure that the citizens were properly informed and given directions on how to access the budget so everyone can check for themselves.
But it is interesting to note that Haddix was instrumental in a DAPC meeting held in City Council Chambers on October 17th. This meeting was held out by Haddix's chosen candidates, Allen and Dienhart, as the greatest thing since slice bread and each voiced his support of DPAC if elected. If this was not a political meeting held at City Hall then I do not know what would constitute a political meeting. But what a disappointment - the DAPC story was a repeat of a study released two years ago and in the two years DAPC not done anything to put a proposed detailed plan in place. I understand hizzhonor gets lost but you would think Allen and Dienhart would do their homework.
But at least we know why hizzhonor did not want to allow this to come out - another Haddix (new adjective here). Departure from reality seems to be the norm for hizzhonor so all of his claims need to be fact checked and called out each time. He has always assumed that his statements would not be checked and has gotten away with a lot of misdirection and misleading statements. Note to Haddix - all statements will be fact checked.
