Buried deep in the story it DOES mention that the DEBATE will be
TODAY at 2:00 in Flat Rock!

Were this a democrat debate, it would have been the headline or in the first paragraph.

The Asheville Citizen-Times has used this story as a means to not report a news story but to join in with the name calling. So will the AC-T report the names called of liberal candidates?

Oh no, they cant do that! That would be level reporting and we all know that the AC-T does none of that.

One of the characteristics of a good politician is the ability to work with people and for people. Although I like some of the decisions Mumpower makes as City councilman, I have serious doubts about his ego. We don't need more egos in power. Arrogant Ass seems appropriate in this case. In the immortal words of Rodney King, Can't we all just get along?

My question is: Who leaked the email?

Could it be that the control freak is slowly losing control.

The debate has yet to occur so how is the headline for this story accurate?

Not to mention that the candidates have not exchanged words at all: Dr. M is a candidate, but the Mayor of Flat Rock is just that- the Mayor of Flat Rock, not a candidate.

Honestly, who edits these stories?

Judging from Mr. Mumpower's public history, I think the mayor was actually being kind in his remarks.

Unknown beings.

Is the Flat Rock Mayor a democrat or embarrassed Republican?

Be thankful we still have people to stand for the right. Mr. M. is a true American. This country need more leaders to follow his example.

"Mumpower objected to a rule prohibiting larger signs"

I see deep Psychological underpinnings here, small Penis Syndrome ... Carl may need therapy.
