This area has a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The roads are narrow, there are no shoulders, there is little lighting and traffic is at highway speeds. There are no sidewalks. Pedestrians often wear dark clothing at night and are very difficult to see, especially for drivers facing oncoming headlights. As the area has transitioned from low density agricultural to residential the risk of this type of event has increased. It is amazing it doesn't happen more often.
Thank goodness the voters are protected from elected officials expressing an opinion about public policy.
This is an excellent idea. Good job, Sheriff.
Being terrorized at gunpoint is not "unharmed."
Stealing food from dogs is as low down as you can get. This will be handled in a special corner of hell.
I know her and vouch for her integrity and accessibility. If you take the opportunity to know her - and she is available as an office-holder as well as a candidate - I'm sure you will agree. At least try it. If you do so and still disagree it will at least be on the basis of personal experience and not just throwing rocks.
If you live in the district she serves, it is apparent you have never taken the time to contact her, as Ms. Dickerson is very responsive and very attentive to people in her district, even the few who are rude and hostile. If you call her you'll find you have little to be frustrated about. You may disagree on a public policy issue but you will have no reason for personal animosity. If you don't live in the district she serves then your frustration is misplaced and you should apologize before God checks off that little box about bearing false witness.
Who made the political decision for the county to repair/maintain a private asset the first time around? If it was approved by the county commission it should be a matter of public record. If that was the case we should know who to thank for the current situation. If it wasn't approved by the commission it would suggest the possibility of malfeasance, and if that was the case it is not necessarily the county's financial obligation to repair it again. It would be the county's obligation to prosecute.
This issue is more watered down than a cheap well drink. It isn't enough to divide it between city and county,and then into three different aspects of the same issue. Now we have to subdivide it within overlay districts. Except for those districts we might put off into the future. Once we settle all these variables for Sunday sales maybe we should vote on them separately for each of the other six days a week. In the meantime we'll be dining in Rockdale.
This is a bad way to start. If you only need to bring everyone up to speed write a memo and circulate it. Closed meetings create the perception of insider self-dealing. With this much public money at stake the public should be regarded as an investor, and has every right to be at the table.
