Did any of you see the article written by Matt Meeks that was in the Piedmont Journal this past week? The one about the current mayor situation? What did you guys think about it?

Don't know the guy nor live there. It's his opinion and his right to express it.

This bickering is going to get worse before it gets better. I'm afraid no one's going to be re-elected next time except maybe the only woman on the council who has the guts to say what she thinks. I don't think Fagen will be elected either. People are sick of all of this. Wait until the winter power bills hit.

Just Wondering; I read it and for lack of modesty must say that it was well written and thought out. I guess you could expect no less as I was the author. LOL. I am just terribly embarassed by the lack of intellect displayed by our former mayor, and the lack of compassion displayed by our current mayor. My parents are on a very fixed income, while my own seems to grow smaller each month. I have been asked if I have political aspirations, to which the answer is NO, I do not. Even if qualified, I am afraid I would be no better than either of the other two candidates. I do feel we need someone who will stand up for the city and it's citizens and not play games with peoples lives at stake. I do not personally know either of the two spoken of and can only attest to their actions as they have affected me, a citizen of Piedmont. Not sure what you were looking for by asking that question, but would welcome any dialogue you may have to offer. Have a Good day and remember to thank GOD for all He has done for us.

I'd like to know the real truth about what happened. Some people say Fagen took a lot of money. Other people say Brent Morrison stole the city Blind when he was City Clerk and was behind Young running to start with. Have you ever heard the expression "One big cluster ____!" I think that's what we've got. Can you just follow the money? That's how Nixon got caught. It would be like finding your ancestors Start with the current set of books (who knows how many there really are) and keep going back. The bank keeps records. How hard could this be? I've been told that Young's wife wont let him run again. It will be Charlie Fagen and Brent Morrison. I think it would be a good idea to run a sleeper. Charlie made the comment that he wouldn't even have to campaign to be re-elected. That's a stupid thing to say. If these poor people suffer through the winter like they did last year, they might just duke it out in the parking lot behind City Hall. Someone is lying, that's for sure. Money talks and bull ---- walks.

Well let me see, Since I don't know Young or Morrison and all I know about Fagan is he known all over as the junk king and gives no discount to regular folks, tried to buy a used part there one time and found you could get it at a dealer cheaper???????

Just a little information about Matt Meeks. He is originally from Cedartown Ga. He was a police officer and he was my neighbor. He ended up getting fired for things he done to me and my family. This was after they placed him on psychiatric leave. He moved after being fired because of his humiliation. Don't believe this? Research it in the Rome News Tribune. Their internal investigating department had to investigate it when he put headstones in his front yard with our names on them. This was only one thing he done to us. I would not believe anything he says.
