The staff issues were a smokescreen, used by those in the town government and on the council who are looking for some developer payola, to get Mayor Pyatt out of the way. This will enable the pro-growth leeches to destroy this fine community just to line their own pockets.

There is something very odd going on in Mount Airy. Prior to Mayor Pyatt's quiting/firing (not sure which) Mayor Frank Johnson (a capable and hands-on leader) abruptly quit half-way into his term citing work/health issues as the reason. It is strange that the town can not keep its leaders. Ultimaely, the residents are the ones that suffer in such situations. One must wonder what is about the Town Council and its affect on those trying to govern? Perhaps it is time for fresh leadership from the mayor on down. Personally, I'm not in favor of term limits for politicians - this may be the solutions for much of the bickering and sniping that seems to permeate much of the council's meetings.

he woman who was "yelled" at wasted no time in telling people how "frightened she was" by the mayor. This was fun for her to be the center of attention as she recounted the story - each time more vivid. It is quite sad that this mans reputation was destroyed by her. Mount Airy residents (particulary housing development residents) enjoy feeling like they are part of a small town by picking on a person until they are down. It must be a a cheap suburb thing brought with them.
