  1. Who in their right mind schedules a debate on a Friday night in Masters Week? The words Tone Deaf come to mind.

    Would loved to have been a fly on the wall and witnessed her Lord & Savior calling her to run for office. Give me a break.

    I’m a District 1 resident and 100% endorse Dewey for reelection. Known him many years and he has done an excellent job.

  2. Mr. Galeas only involvement with the Harlem water system and the County would have been his vote. He was not involved in any meetings with the County Administrator and County Chairman with City of Harlem officials. The votes were there to complete the deal without him.
    The truth is that Mr. Galeas like to take credit for the hard work of others.
    District 4 needs a true voice for the people. Vote Alison Couch for District 4 Commisioner, the true District 4 voice of the citizens that live here.

  3. THE ARTICLE STATES THAT GROVETOWN TRAFFIC WAS DISCUSSED ,BUT GIVES THE READER NO DETAILS CONCERNING EITHER CANDIDATES PROPOSED SOLUTIONS.
    I MAKE THE SAME OBSERVATION FOR THE TOPIC “SMART GROWTH” ——- NO DETAILS FROM EITHER CANDIDATE ARE REPORTED.
    NEITHER CANDIDATE IS REPORTED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE NEED FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY BY THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND ITS ELECTED OFFICIALS.
    NEITHER CANDIDATE IS REPORTED TO HAVE PROPOSED SPENDING CUTS TO REDUCE THE TAX BURDEN ON PROPERTY OWNERS .
    THERE SHOULD BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SELECT “NONE OF THE ABOVE” ON THE BALLOT .
