From Doravilleonlinenews.com

Doraville Georgia, city of less than 10,000 residents in north metro atlanta, has another loosing season. The city is in a 5 year tailspin canít seem to stop loosing money while raising the taxes to the highest in the north metro area. The taxes now over shadow such spend thrifts as the City of Atlanta and Decatur. The city was flush for years with a great location, low taxes 66% commercial properties that represented virtually every vender in retail. The quiet tree lined neighborhoods were award winning communities with parks and great schools. What went wrong?
The school system disappeared, the town center disappeared, the Gm plant closed, and the smart money and people left town. Like all sad cases across America- the vultures swarm in to pick the remains. Buford highway, the main drag through the city, was once populated by the whose who of retailing. They have been replaced by the dregs of society. Money changers, massage parlors, pawns shops, used car and tire dealers, sleazy lingerie and sex shops. Business that cater to the third world population. Cheap bus stations, no name shops and flea markets that move in and out like their transient customer population. Doraville has become the slum lords paradise and the county dumping ground for what everyone else does not want in their back yard.
The Mayor and council are no exception. Except for one council person who perhaps should live in dunwoody. The Mayor is a ex mall guard, working on husband two or three. She is somewhat dull witted and was a do nothing on the council for eight years to collect a pay check and free insurance ( she was appointed). The old Mayor died and she inherited the position. Not exactly a rocket scientist. The rest are societies rejects put in office by what is left of the old Doraville. A town that has everything going for it and has squandered every opportunity. Europe in the dark ages when the brain power died off- no one to operate the controls or how to build things.
These sad creatures have fallen into the hands vultures called consultants and venders Ö. to be continued
Sincerely

Buford, GA

Tom, you were one of 'societies rejects' too. Didn't you at one time sit on council? Did you not run for Mayor a couple times? If you were sitting up there right now you would be the one who people would be yelling recall. Anybody is fair game in Doraville for the name calling, accusations, and anything else some want to throw at them, whether sitting on council, working for Doraville or being Mayor. Hell, some can be talked about for just passing through. You should know since you are ONE of the main ones who do the yelling and bitching. If its all so bad for you people why don't you just get on out of Doraville. Move to one of the cities who are doing things like you want. Betcha' they wouldn't put up with the way some of you talk to/about their employees and council/mayor. I would bet they would chase the whole bunch of you out of town 'on a rail'.

Looks like Donna must have called or emailed some of her supporters and told them to comment on Topix. She probably had her kids deliver the kool aid. I love the way she uses those kids to try and make herself look so "nice". As for moving out of this town, thanks to morons like Stewie and Donna and the slumlords and all those others who kiss their ass, our houses aren't worth anything. Why don't you move? Are you from Oakcliff? I'm guessing if I lived in another city I wouldn't even be saying anything to the mayor and council because they wouldn't be allowing my city to become a 3rd world trash pit. But even if I did say something about them, there's this little thing called freedom of speech. I'm curious "Sincerely", where do you shop or eat on Buford Highway? I'm betting as is so often the case that your idea of fine dining is S & S at Embry Hills. I'm betting you never set foot on Buford Highway. Tom is speaking the truth, his past is irrevelant as it pertains to this very real travesty called "Moon Lingerie". There is nothing legal about a sleazeball attorney and a money grubbing mayor conspiring to find a loophole to allow this crap in our city.

Name calling and bad mouthing are one thing. Pointing out incompetence is another. All the legitimate complainers on this blog offer undeniable conduct and malfeasance being performed by our city leaders.

Can you honestly say none of what has been exposed is not true? Is it all made up or in the name of "bad mouthing?" Or do you just lack the class to know what is truly good for our home values (a huge personal investment) and crap that drags those values down. If most of us could afford the loss, we would move. But we are stuck here and refuse to allow a bunch of fools, elected by luck, to continue to spoil it for everyone else.

If you took the time and had the intelligence to investigate whether what we say is true or not, you would be surprised.
Seriously

The jig is up and they know it. Seriously. Time for them to head to the hills.
