Is it me or has the District 5 school board and county commissioners Republican run off has turned nasty. Attacking Robbie Tucker and Venus Holmes. I thought Ms. Holmes is a Democrat. Who is behind these senseless attacks. Could it be Pastor Ken Atkins. Wow whats in your pass.

Past I mean. Don't you owe a church in Brunswick for taking money or applying for a loan without the congregation even knowing. You are up to date on your payments aren't you? I think not. So Ms. Wells you were running a clean campaign on the issues until the article in the Brunswick News surfaced Saturday. I'm a minority conservative. You had my vote, but not now.

Ms. Wells, you are a bright, young, African American woman with a great future ahead of you. Just be careful who you align yourself with. Maybe somebody is trying to live their political aspirations through you because he knows he doesn't stand a snow balls chance in hell to being relevant or taking seriously in Brunswick. Just remember one thing Ms. Wells, every campaign Ken Atkins has been apart of the person has lost. Ask Cap Fendig, Terry Carter, and the person who ran for mayor in Jacksonville. Atkins helped him try to win the minority vote. So now why does he accuse Venus Holmes for selling out. Is it because no one offered him the money first. I wish they would then maybe he can pay his bills on time and stop having the power shut off at the barbershop and accusing people of tampering with his meter box.

I just received a visit from a person regarding my posts on this site. The person is well respected in the law enforcement community. He reminded me that with what I got going on in my life right now, I need to avoid throwing rocks when my house is made of glass. He reminded me even if my information is true, do not let people take me to the gutter with them. He stated sometimes people just want to hear the truth no matter how the truth is being put out in the fore front. He also reminded me if Ken Atkins is responsible for the negative press, let it be between the persons that is involved in the situation. People I thought I had a right to my own opinion, but since I'm on paper the person that visited me, reminded me I basically have no right. I'm not sorry for what I posted, but now I realize I don't want to be categorized the same way people see the person I posted about, which is "Messy". I'll be the bigger person from now own.

Well people I've tried to be the bigger person, but I just got notified that the other individuals involved are going to play what it commonly referred to as "going ham". Talking about empowering the 18 - 45 year old in the community. Well lets began by empowering the EBT card holders you know to turn in their EBT cards instead of pimping them to buy ribs and fish so it can be sold on Saturdays on Altama Avenue. Lets remember Jesus gave away his fish and bread instead of selling it. Wow! Now what I just said is deep because it is the truth. Who gets the money because we know bills aren't getting paid. I MAY BE ON PAPER AND HAVE LIMITED RIGHTS, BUT I DO HAVE A FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Now please "Messy" people I have spoken so let me be.

This is something I've never done. Post on a blog spot. I once had a Facebook account, but I deleted it because I have seen the stuff posted on Facebook and I don't believe it was created for that. Well congrats go to Tashawnta Wells and all who are in the District 5 races. I grew up in District 5, but moved out of the district a long time ago. Ms. Wells I have personally seen you walking door to door greeting people in your district. Don't let anyone discourage you for being a minority conservative. I consider myself one, but I don't vote based on party affiliation, I vote for the person I feel hold the same views as myself rather if they are Democrat or Republican. Brother and sisters this negativity has to stop. The attacks on people from both sides has really been comical. The issues have been completely ignored now. whoever K.A. owes that between him and that person or organization. Is business in District 5 going to stop because K.A. owe someone, I don't think so. Whoever win any District 5 race rather it be school board or county commissioner face an up hill battle because the district has been ignored for a long time. Becoming a politician opens up your life and those affiliated with you to being examined under a microscope. For those who have been the "Big Dog" on the porch, look around and see what have you really done for your district. Set aside your ego or your position and remember the past while embracing the future. In other words lets prepare future leaders in our community to step in this arena and deal with this mess that has been created. Damn, local governmental seats must pay a lot of money because people sure don't want to give them up. Maybe President Obama needs to forget about being re-elected as President, move to Brunswick and run for any District 5 seat cause like stated before this has become comical. Both sides lets stop and focus on the issues in the District like securing funds for Selden Park and upgrading Burroughs Mollete instead of the school getting a new air conditioner every now and then. Black leaders in this community in some way or another have ties to District 5 so let this negative energy be focused on making this district the proud district it once was. Thank you for my first, my only, and my last post.
