I think the Chairperson of the current commission should remove his sorry opinionated self from the seat and let someone who is concerned about the people take that position. The people of Chattahoochee County should thank their many blessings to have a county official such as Glynn Cooper as Sheriff and look at the community he has taken care of with his deputies standing behind him. All fell apart when the commission chairman's personal agenda came into play to make all better for the rich and worse for the poor. He thinks that trailer dwellers and low rent housing occupants should move and let his buddies, the developers, take over the county. Open your eyes people, get rid of fat cat politicians and do for yourselves by electing down to earth commissioners who do for the common people.

At the candidates' forum on the 14th the chairman made the statement "It's a fact that 73% of the housing in the county is substandard". I can't see how anyone could come up with that precise figure; who's doing the counting, and how?

Most of these homes were not substandard until they got ordinance-happy.

One of the things that makes them substandard is the trailers or Manufactured houses that are skirted with vinyl or lattice or anything other than masonry, which is dictated by the zoning ordinance. A concrete block "foundation" that actually supports nothing and is demanded just for appearance takes about $1000 worth of blocks and a lot of labor. The purpose is, of course, to "zone out" manufactured housing.
