Where have we been and where are we going? Our future is assured thanks to the vision of our city leaders past and present. Their visions have been wise and inspiring. Thanks to their leadership and visions, St Marys will take its rightful place beside cities like Hollywood, Carmel, Cape Cod and St Augustine. Tourist who bypass St Marys for lessor cities like Fernandina Beach, Savannah, and St Simons will one day soon flock to St Marys. The streets downtown will one day be shoulder to shoulder and crowded with week-end revelers every day of the week. Osborne Street will one day be one of the great world street equal to Oxford Street in London. Our downtown waterfront will be like Times Square on New Years Eve every day of the week.

Thanks city leaders. You have a thankless job, but many of us appreciate what you have done to us.

St Marys is the cultural, intellectual and financial center of Camden County. Kingsland and Woodbine have their place, but it is St Marys that will always be the cultural, intellectual and financial leader. We are so lucky to live in such an enlightened city.

St. Marys' dry Mardi Gras was actually founded before the drunks put theirs together in New Orleans.

St. Marys is the Titanic, and city council is the iceberg. Best way I can think of to explain it.

And how'd that work out for each city?

St. Marys is a dead end, period. It's going no where but broke. The slums are taking over and the entire place above Pt. Peter Road looks like a trailer park. How man dollar stores and used clothing stores can one town have. Not to mention the bums hanging around the Salvation Army and Goodwill. Wal-Mart is adding to the trailer park vibe by providing a safe place for degenerates to harass people. The waterfront is nice but all it is is a park. On a sunny day I could go for a walk down there but could care less about spending money or going more than a couple times a month.

Just like our state representation from our douche bag rep. Homebrew law is his claim to fame. He can't help the kids with AED's, he screwed the fisherman, and he has to have his nut case sister in law make a fool of herself trying to defend him. Oh and I forgot the whole tech school fiasco.

Their vision is to get rid of the airport. Just in case some venture considers this area that might need an airport to help their venture.

St. Mary's and Camden County governments are in terrible financial condition. They approved a lot of building permits for subdivisions without having any infrastructure. Now those lot owners are launching lawsuits.

Add to that the fact that Jack Kingston is jumping ship right before St. Mary's is told they're losing Kings Bay in the next round of BRAC. They will no longer have seniority in the congress, no one to fight for a losing town.

Last but not least 82% of your tax digest is originated from residential taxes. This county is a disaster that keeps on growing.

When 63% of the jobs in the community that pay more than $20,000.00 per year are attached to City/County/School System you have a problem!

Depressing really. But my house is 40% upside down so I'm stuck here!!!

Bert doesn't have the funds to run for a congressional seat. Stein can no longer use the HA slush fund. But Stein may be able to getter done with the Supervisor of Elections.

However he is deeply embedded in Camden Partnership which has the ability to get the St. Mary's City Council to finance almost anything.

You may be in the minority with this thought. According to the leadership of Camden Partnership (Sheila McNeil & Barrett King) Jacks decision could effect Camden County in the next round of BRAC. But I agree if he wants to abort the Congressional seat to run for the Senate, I'm not mad at him.

What other job could you get that guarantees you a quarter million dollars a years for LIFE after serving two terms. But the clincher is he has to win first!
