Diving right into to the column for this week.

Let me start by thanking everyone for all the comments on last week’s column. There is always a level of surprise when you read some of them. But once the room is read, you understand why certain people hav...

  1. People don’t vote as much on color lines as they do on party lines and black people typically run on a democrat platform. I know most local elections are non partisan but you can hear the party line in their comments..on national and state elections I bet you find the black community probably votes 90% or more straight democrat. I have no problem voting for any color. My vote aligns with which person speaks to my morals and values in my every day life. I’ve voted for both democrat and republican presidents and sometimes on the lesser of two evils. Anyone who votes for Kendrick is voting for more of what you already have. I don’t care what his economic background says he has shown you that he will make side deals and finagle the office to suit his personal needs..he is Hardie 2.0. I sure hope the finances of the city start getting looks from state officials because something isn’t kosher in Denmark…

  2. It appears that Governor Kemp is about 25% points ahead of David Perdue. This is no doubt due to his excellent record of guiding Georgia through the pandemic and ignoring the efforts to influence him from President Trump. President Trump will no doubt continue to enjoy a substantial following, but in my opinion there exists an even larger group who support the more centrist and “common sense” positions of people like Governor Kemp. Most reasonable people are looking for candidates who can help heal the divisiveness that has dominated the last several years.

  3. A vote for Kendrick is a vote for the status quo – zero transparency, greed and graft. It became apparent with the job swap “deal” and now with the fiasco at the baseball stadium. Wake up voters.
