Has anyone announced yet? It's getting time to get started if anyone wants to make a run for it.

Best way I know to give the power folks Cardiac arrest. I doubt he will run. I understand he has had a lot of health problem of late but who knows. I would certainly take him over anyone else I know.

Look, stupid. That ordinance is because there are idiots out there that don't know when to stop. Hoyt's made a big @ss sign out of a couple of sheets of plywood over by Bank of Blairsville. Next thing you know some out of town yahoo will want the same thing for their business on Cleveland Street or Blue Ridge Street. Hell, let's just put some big damn billboards right on the square. Nantahala Bank installed bright @ss lights that light up the square so you could see it from space and then they stuck that God awful red LED light there like a circus attraction. We don't need downtown Blairsville looking like the Las Vegas strip. The time to nip that crap in the bud is before it gets started, not afterwards when it has turned into a cesspool of advertising. Bitch all you want but I hope they build a freaking bullet-proof ordinance that will keep people from doing what they ought not to be doing in the first place.
Well there you go folks here's the rub in the mix.

Did someone step on your toes, hurt your feelings, intrude on your space, assume they had as much right as you to work, live, or express an opinion in Blairsville?

So apparently someone really hit a nerve, but you must excuse us, who knew we were stepping on the toes of one of the chosen elite.

So come on... are you the Mayor or one of the Council?? Fess up, it really doesn't matter now, we started cleaning up the County last year, but we got the time now to start cleaning up the Town.

Elections are closely approaching. And I think your are going to find most folks realize that a business friendly community attracts businesses, thus jobs. And we need that.

So just keep making your selfish noise. But stay hidden, for those who need those jobs so desperately... may just see to it that you loose yours.

So, Lamar personally made the ruling that Pack was to be disqualified? How did he do that?
It's really simple. But for a short answer it's the bad side of good-ole-boy politics. I'm sure you're not as clueless as you pretend.

I know Frank to be a good man, one having the best interests of our community at heart.

Look at the poll at the start of this thread, as unreliable as it may be, the "other" candidate garners more votes than may vote for any candidate in the town. We know the voting population in town is small, and a diligent effort would be significant.

With a little organization, some fund raising, and just a little planning Frank Pack could without a doubt be the next Mayor of Blairsville.

Think about it... and all of us who are talking of supporting him need to join together NOW to help him, and plan our course of action.

I don't live in the City but will sure help out with his campaign.

If he doesn't get mayor then we need to start him early as the next commissioner.

Excellent point, thanks for your positive response.

Maybe, one of us can contact him in the NEAR future discuss the matter and "git things a movin."

If things are positive will need your and everyone's help.

Anyone know why the city went out of town to get someone to do the work on the square instead of local people? It's not right to take money from residents and then spend the money with their pals.

It does my heart good to see that people realize that they need and deserve a change in govt. Unfortunately I am afraid that many who have expressed their opinion are not able to cast a vote. I for one would love to see some responsible govt. brought to Blairsville and Union County. Look at the qualifications of our present office holders. Do you see anyone who has shown a desire to preserve our way of living and our heritage? It is time folks to stand up and be counted.

Good to see your posting and you make an excellent point. That is why, in my view, now is the time for planning. The need for vital statistics as to precisely who those registered voters are, which vote consistently, and other (public obtainable) logistical information is NOW.

You can be assured that those, in power now, who have NOT been transparent, have been irresponsible, self-serving, and unresponsive to the needs of the Town of Blairsville (central to our Community and Union County) have already done these things in order to maintain their stronghold for the status quo.

An for us, the people of, not simply, Blairsville but also Union County, is obvious. We can easily make a difference. We have shown that in the elections here of 2012, by electing two more responsive leaders, a New Sheriff and Tax Commissioner. And, in that process, we made an excellent showing to unseating the Sole Commissioner. And interesting to note, that was done with an unknown neophyte to politics, who without a doubt shook the confidence of, not just the Commissioner but the entire self-serving political establishment.

Also, I remind everyone not living or voting in the Town limits of Blairsville, that the decision made by that governing body (Blairsville) affects us all. So therefore, each person living in the County albeit they are unable to vote in the Town elections, certainly have cause to make every effort to influence our friends, relatives, and business leaders to support a NEW MORE RESPONSIVE LEADERSHIP for Blairsville.

Yes, we do “need and deserve a change in government.” And I agree wholeheartedly “It’s time (for) folks to stand up and be counted.”

And yes, I see the opportunity possibly allowing us the chance to encourage and support one of our own “who has shown a desire to preserve our way of living and our heritage.”

Links below bring to light that opportunity, I hope many will see fit to support this effort, including and especially, someone such as you, Reb.

I am for Frank Pack running. He is perfect to run. He will upset the apple cart for sure. The rotten apples will not be controlling him.

There will only be one position left in this town to change and that will be the commissioners. Consider that to be in the works.

Frank Pack isn't qualified to be Mayor. You have to have spent your life as a drunk. Have Children all over the state that you didn't support and who doesn't have anything to do with you and be a puppet for a few while trying to act like you have good sense. No Pack wouldn't qualify. He would make a good councilman though.

the council is just a bunch of dumb asses doing as they are told by the good ole boys. I would not put Pack in that category.

I ran into Frank yesterday and ask him straight out if he was running for mayor. His answer was that he wasn't if someone with a little sense and who cared for the people of the town rather than impressing a certain little group would run. He said if no one did run he would most certainly run.

Frank needs to run. Time for that old mayor to hit the road.

It's just a thought but it might be in the best interest of the residents to elect someone who is young and not directly tied to anyone. Don't know if a candidate like this could be found but it is a thought.
