I think everyone who has been following this story is well aware that Mr Goolesby doesn't represent the majority of the folks on the mountain and needs to learn some manners. The one who should be apologizing is Goolesby, not the mayor, in fact, he should be apologizing to the mayor, rest of the city council and citizens of Sylvania for making the town look bad. He needs to step down from the council. I don't blame him for wanting to stand up for his granddaughter, but you don't make a spectacle of your town like that in so doing. If you are going to be an idiot, do it as a private citizen, not as an elected official.

I to agree he needs to step down from the council, not because of what happened at ider but all the crap he has caused at slyvania because the thing at ider had nothing to do with was a private issue that should have been handled in private between himself and barron not in public.a city councilman's job is considered part-time therefore if he was not acting on behalf of the town of slyvania then i don't see where anyone can blame the mayor or other council members for one dumb*sses for the issue about barron and goolesby's granddaughter I will take sides with goolesby,no one should be forced to wear a canidates shirt if they don't want to.

I bet that press release will stir up a good tantrum.
