I started commenting on here two or three years ago when the "listening sessions" concerning district voting were ongoing. I went to one and was floored by the attitudes of the councilmen that attended. It was, basically, watching them sit there with hands on chins acting bored, watching the clock, and hoping to get it over with. It was also blatantly obvious to me as I sat there, that this issue had the overwhelming support of those in attendance. I personally witnessed the council meeting where it came to a vote and Bob Polston choked on his opportunity to be a leader. Since that time, I tried my best to keep this issue in the forefront of a lot of the council's petty arguing. When I saw the news last night, that the Republicans had taken the council against this group of democrats I was thrilled. And, forth millionth time, I'm a registered Democrat.
Thank you to you folks who took on the job of running. But, the biggest thanks, I think, goes to the voters who made themselves informed and decided no more of the same stuff in Clarksville. The people clearly spoke. Now, let's hope that those that won follow this mandate.
To my friend Sleepy...much respect in defending your positions and candidates. It's what makes this website worth coming back too.
