This town has historically been a hotbed of corruption and incompetence. What should be a booming vacation location is reduced to an impoverished dump. While they chose to maintain the status quo, many potential enhancements have passed right on through. Most notably WALT DISNEY WORLD!

You are truly ignorant. You don't know what you are talking about. You are listening (and probably participating) in the mob mentality going on in efforts to try to intimidate the Mayor of Gaston by bringing in people who can't even vote in the town of Gaston because the majority of the people inside of the town of Gaston know it is all a bunch of BS. So why don't you keep your ignorant comments to yourself.

What do you mean? Are you implying Walt Disney was looking at Santee when when was going to build Walt Disney World?

Yep....Walt Disney entered into negotiations with several large land owners in Santee, back in the early 60's. I-95 was in the works, and the lake, as well as the large available tracts of land was perfect. But, they did not want to change their simple "southern lifestyle", so Walt kept looking. And the rest, as they say, is history......

I live in Gaston as well and have all of my life. Of course we don't want our town criticized in public. Nobody in their right mind would want the town the grew up in trashed in public. I'm all for power to the people....let the people vote. Let the people get involved and come to town council meetings in the town they vote in and help make things better. Running your mouth doesn't do a thing to help our town.

I don't understand why it is that the people that live around Gaston want to trash our town anyway. Did you see the Lexington Chronicle today? They reported that the Town of Swansea is "in a deep financial hole -- more than $1 million -- and the mayor and council are trying to climb out of it." But Gaston gets behind on a $12K debt (which is now paid off by the way) and suddenly Swansea's mayor is "honorable" and Gaston's mayor needs to be impeached.(source: letter to the editor written of The Messenger) It is just amazing to me.

I say if you want to make Gaston a better place, shut up and help!

Sounds like the PERM SQUAD ..(the mayor's family..)
You can all tell who they are by the tons of hair sticking out of their overtanned orange skin and 25 pounds of tacky silver.

Wrong. I'm not related to anyone in town. But I do think it is sad that you would personally attack people like this. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion when it comes to politics but I find it deplorable for you or anyone else to personally attack the family of an elected official. You should be ashamed. How about leave your personal nastiness out of this and stick to the issues? That's the only thing that will help our town overcome the mounds of bad publicity our town has received.
