We enjoy Thchopitoulas (or however it's spelled?)
I hear they are opening a Tapa's restaurant where the Side Street Cafe used to be.
I enjoy a little variety other than steam table.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Crystal Haynie & I'm running for City Council in precinct 2. I just ran across this site & I think it's a wonderful sounding board - I wish more people were on here.

I'm running for council because I'm tired of all the petty personal drama of our elected officials, the fear of angering someone that has money, & the lack common sense.

I went door to door to most of the houses in my district over the weekend and I noticed the cat problem. We need to start trapping the strays. Don't get me wrong I love animals. Most of the charity work I do is for the Animal Shelter. We need more funding there, period. But in the mean time, the city ordinance, I believe is 3 pets per household and it needs to be enforced! These strays can carry disease, what if we had a rabies outbreak???

Gosh, I can go on and on about all the things I want to stand up for and to be a voice of the citizens for. But to keep from rambling, I'll exit on this note for ya'll to think on - Why is our surgical suite being stalled on? Why isn't the Junior College not in the building phase yet? Why are we not striving to stay a progressive community?

I'll be checking back on here regulary now, I'm an openbook & I want to serve this community.

Now that is a refreshing viewpoint. I look forward to learning more about you. I can't vote in Crockett but I sure can discuss issues with friends and acquaintances.
I like a forward thinking get out of the mold approach. Kudos to you!

Well my personal views on pit bulls might be a bit extreme. But they can be deadly and are often mistreated and used for illegal purposes. However, can be great pets. I don't know why we can't do "Pet" Bull permitting process. So people that truly love the breed can enjoy responsible ownership.

That's the weird thing about Crockett. We spend more time & effort avoiding hurting people's feelings. Yes, a few people are not going to like every policy but we can't just not have policy because of that. That is ridiculous. Even more stuff gets bogged down in racial issues & elected officials should never let race enter their mind. We do act on whatever is the best for the greater amount of citizens and future citizens. Not just for the voters, the taxpayers, but the new people, workers, & employers we need to be personally escorting in.

The demographic for the age group that generates the most tax revenue is 25-40... name 3 things about Crockett that would make someone in that range want to move here. Put aside there isnt anything to do or a place to spend money. Where is there an opportunity for career advancement, so they could make more money?

It frustrates me to no end. And I want to be that voice of reason... or if not me then I want to inspire more people to stand up & take part and get are city away from these "Yes" men.

It's funny how people will label someone negative for pointing out our weaknesses as a town and county.
Since moving to Crockett I have noticed that even constructive criticism put forward as nicely as possible hurts people feelings. Not sure why but it does.

I run my own businesses and I am constantly critiquing them. I know the only way to improve and stay competitive is to stay as close to the top as you can. Yes, I have room for improvement all the time but I do try and change for the better.

I have watched almost all the kids that my kids graduated with flee Crockett at the earliest chance (including mine). My kids have all graduated college and could be a great asset to this community but they know they will not be accepted by the cronies that control things.
They laugh when I mention returning.
That is not a good thing.

I wish you luck and think you are on the right track. Things will change here one day soon. The power is slipping as the "real" money and talent enters the picture.

My 2 cents.

As far as a specific breed of animals ,I have nothing against Pit bulls ,My neighbor had a schnauzer that was the most obnoxious little dog I ever saw! Any dog, if it's chained up and has no contact with humans will be aggressive and bark it's ass of at anything..out of boredom I guess.
Animal control won't or can't do a whole lot unless the damn thing bites someone . And yes there is a racial undertone in just about everything that comes before this council it seems.You're not in my precinct but I'd vote for you if I could. Good luck !!!!!
