At tomorrow night's city council meeting, replacing Artie Jones, III, is on the agenda.
Please swamp the mayor and council with e-mails requesting that they defund it and spend less money helping to fund the JDA.
The JDA has sent them a letter requesting that they do just exactly that.
What better time to do so?
Show up and speak in favor of defunding the DDA and funding the JDA. Don't blow this golden opportunity to move in the right direction in the elimination of the costly duplication of competing services.
You can bet the DMA hog dogs will be out in force clamoring for the DDA to have a bigger budget.
Let the will of the other 99% prevail tomorrow
night.

Why not slither out from behind your keyboard and "show up and speak" to council yourself tomorrow night? Come on, coward, step up and tell everyone about the dangers of Kearns, the DMA, the DDA, Nutter, recycling etc. etc.

This is an issue that needs to go away. Why do we need one for St. Marys we have one on the County level. Save the money. Do away with the worthless mess.

After considering the effect of losing the DDA it dawned on me that as worthless as it is the JDA is equally as worthless.

Moreno is correct about the DMA. They will have the council eating out of their hand in about five minutes.

Therefore for community unity I recommend Alex Kearns be appointed as the new DDA director.

A fleet of Greenpeace vessels could be just around the corner.

Get rid of the DDA. The people on are ripping the tax payers off. No need for it..

Don't expect too much. We have a very stupid and weak council controlled by the real estate cartel. Our local governments don't give a hoot about the average homeowner. They will bend and blow with the wind.

Can anyone name anything the DDA has developed downtown? Close the doors and consolidate with county.

Can anyone name anything the county JDA has accomplished. Before the JDA is given ANYMORE more Chip should request a independent forensic audit. That outfit is worst than the St. Marys Hospital Authority! No oversight just continue giving them funding for nothing.

Not surprised that Jay is out supporting another behind the scenes Charlie Smith venture.

Before Chip and Chuck sign up the taxpayers to defeat themselves maybe the structure of the JDA Board of Directors should be re-evaluated.

How long has Stan Fowler, Gary Willis, Burford Clark and Louise Mitchell, etc. served on the JDA? Are these career appointees the reason the JDA has been so ineffective?

This board is no different than the Congress & Senate except they are appointed ( which the taxpayers have no oversight nor authority over) but they have served since the existance of a JDA was created in Camden.

The public has never received a clear explanation of the JDA purchasing the shopping center in St. Marys from Charlie Smiths client! Taxpayers can't get clear answers as to how JDA negotiated to give Express Scripts a FREE ride, as in no lease payment until 2050!

I say before anyone gives the JDA anymore money to buy anymore "land and buildings" the taxpayers should have a clear vision.

Oh yeah! What happened to the money the JDA received to implement water & sewer in unincoporated areas. They fleeced the taxpayers via PSA on this one. Before you lie and say they never received any money Jay; I'm calling you a liar!!! Continue sucking Charlies balls you may eventually actually be accepted in his group! Just kidding.... They talk so bad sbout you behind your back. But you never fail to carry their water!!!!

Can anyone name anything the JDA has developed other than bringing a bunch of crooks with their solar A/C systems to St. Marys?

End the DDA but don't give more money to the JDA. David Keating and his 100k salary is as bad as Jones and as wasteful.

That money was returned, with interest, to the developers who had been illegally forced to cough it up. Those "contributions" were ruled illegal "exactions," under Georgia law, just exactly as then Commissioner Sandy Feller told the CCBOC that they were.

That was during the days when David Rainer was of the opinion that "we don't need no stinking county manager."

Psst. Get a clue. I have no desire to be a member of any group. I am not a herd animal. I don't crave approval from a damned soul other than myself.

And of course Hase, Keiting, Obama, Traitor, Jones, any school teacher for an "A" and any of the elitist five in the middle just to mention a few others. A pat on my big head actually goes a long way.

I can't wait to hear Jay's Big Speech to council tonight. Let's see if he can crawl out from behind Topix and demand the end of the DDA, DMA, Earthkeepers, CVB, bed tax and everything else he hates so much. I don't think he has the guts to do it.

He was a no-show of course. He's too much of a coward to do anything other than hide on Topix and send hilarious emails to council.
