Excited to read that we finally have a candidate in the race (who I googled), who seems to be free of scandal , who is also pro life and conservative! I may actually not have to hold my nose to vote this time!

She voted for school tax increases and the school bond. I'd vote for a dirty mop before I'd vote for her. You can say you're conservative but walking the walk is another thing.

That is not true. She only voted 1 time and even if she voted no, the tax increase at the time would have passed anyway.
Get your facts straight next time.

Paulette is out for Paulette! She has had 3 marriages, the last one - both her and her husband cheated on their spouses with each other and then celebrated the union with a large church wedding. She may have been in business but she is so fickle that she can not keep one afloat. She has no experience and just with her own personal choices, a vote for Paulette is a fools vote! Conservative - get your facts straight. Integrity - none. Talk to her past clients. employees, neighbors, anyone that she has had anything to do with - they will be more than happy to tell you who the real Paulette is!

I don't mean to get personal but Paulette deserves defending here. I have known her for 30 yrs. Her 1st marriage at 19, ended because her husband was unfaithful to her while she was expecting their child. It was just after this time, that she built up and initially ran her business at the age of 21, from an apt.,where she lived and was struggling to make ends meet with her a 2yr old child. Marriage #2 ended after 2 more children and 15 yrs, because her husband became addicted to drugs and was unable to rehab himself in order to be a healthy influence for their children. She has always been the sole financial supporter of herself and her 3 kids, even when married, until she finally met her current husband, who is not afraid to work and contribute. I admire her tenacity and success. The comment
from "experienced" is probably from one of the supporters of the 2 men she beat in this race to become the nominee. I have never seen such rabid, sour grapes from a group of people who claim to be so Christian in my life, and you know who you are! You should be ashamed but you're too busy being pious to do that! Why not move on and pick on someone your own size or Walk a mile in someone's shoes before you start throwing stones!

Surefoot826 - she only has 3 employees, one is not old enough to have worked there for 20 years.
Ummmm - can you really own your own business and collect unemployment at the same time?
Marriage number 2 ended because she cheated with marriage number 3.
I wonder, as faithfulness and commitments are so laxed, is number 4 on the horizon and how long before she dumbs and stomps on us like she has her past relationships.
Someone deserving of this position should be the one who has experience and her past is not getting ready to catch up with her. Hey look Paulette, here comes the IRS! Oh my the state of Georgia is right behind them - they want there money back too!

Exactly, is she in it for the long haul or just long enough to quit in the middle.
She does not have a very good track record in her personal life, she was not successful on the Paulding County School Board and she will not be successful in this office. SHE HAS NO EXPERIENCE!
I assure you that I am not affiliated with any political candidate. I too have known Paulette for a very long time. I do know all of her dirty little secrets that she would like to keep buried. I just believe that when a candidate runs for office they should be worthy of that office. She is NOT!
As far a being Christian, yes I am. I walk the walk. Paulette just talks the talk! By the way, poor Paulette, I have walked her mile, I do not feel sorry for her! Maybe she should get some experience, clean up her past and then run for Sanitation Engineer!

ruserious: Could not have said it better! I know about that too! I was saving it for later. Oops cat's out of the bag. Can't wait until I read about it in the newspapers and see her on TV when the whole truth comes out!
3 employees - LOL
Woohoo that's helping the unemployment rate. Isn't one of the campaign promises to bring in more jobs? How can she do that when she has driven a once thriving business into the ground because no one wants to do business with her?(Can't blame it on the economy.)
Paulette, I love the way you got a family member to vouch for you, sad, really sad!
I wonder if Paulette would be interested in handing over her IRS files, business records and other accounts for the last 5-10 years to disprove us.

Experienced and ruserious: The level of contempt you show for another person is what is sad. I still say you are just a bunch of old washed up hacks from some defunct campaign. Face it, she won the republican runoff, which means she appealed to more voters than your guy. So, put your big girl panties on and move on! For the record, I am NOT a relative, I am a friend and she has NO idea about this pathetic little blog, as far as I know. Start whatever fires you want, to but my earlier comments are the truth. Whatever ancillary dirt you try to throw at her, is only a sign of desperation. I suggest for the health of both of you that you not get so excited, as it might make your bitter little hearts explode. Have a nice day....

experienced: it just dawned on me... i just figured out who you are from reading your earlier post above. honestly, i thought you got what you wanted even though you ran over everyone to get it. still not happy, huh? It shows. jealousy is an ugly thing my dear. if only others knew how worthless and ironic negative comments about someone else are, coming from you...laughable. by the way, are you "ruserious", too? Probably. I can't wait to tell her about this blog now, and who is on it. Maybe I can get her to comment for herself and put you back under the rock you crawled out from under.

@ surefoot826 - you have no idea who I am. I could be a relative, a posing friend, her next door neighbor or maybe one of her children. You know what they say......family has all of the dirt and will use it when the time is appropriate.
I'm disappointed, I gave you more credit than what you're showing. I really thought that you would come back with something just a little better. Oh, I don't know, maybe something like "Paulette is such an upstanding citizen, she has nothing to hide". "We would be more than happy to provide bank statements, IRS filings, anything that the public wants to see to prove that she is the person that she claims to be" (business and personal).
Incidentally, I noticed that why you are trying to steer away from the issues. They are still issues!
Yes, please, by all means, have her comment, I'm sure everyone would love to hear her responses. Waiting patiently and forever yours..........

Just to let you know, there is no desperation here. As I stated earlier, I have no political interest. I just think that the great citizens of Paulding County have the right to full disclosure!!
Maybe you should take a good hard look at the evil that you are backing! Ask her if you can see her business and personal documents. Then, tell me if you can still back her! It's coming out, I'm going to make sure of it. It's not a matter of being hateful, it's a matter of getting to the truth. Then we'll let the voters decide. On to phase two of my campaign!
It was really nice chatting with you..........

I have every right as a citizen of Paulding County to express my self and to NOT vote for the evil that you represent. I also have the right to expose her for who she is.
Paulette has the responsibility as a candidate to let the citizens of Paulding County know the true Paulette. I see that you are still avoiding the issues! I can't wait to see her face when she finds out who I am! I know all of the dirt, for those who are interested in knowing the truth look for me. I'll be the one telling the truth while the "team" is giving you BULL!

Sounds to me like she has a problem picking men.

Fact number one: She did vote for the tax increase on the school board. You know that. Second, your comment goes like this: "I didn't kill him your honor, but if I did, it was an accident". So GOP member, get your facts straight before you make yourself look like a fool, AGAIN. Yes it was going to pass, so to me, Paulette was stupid to go along with it. If she was smart, she'd voted NO and kept her conservative record that. But we all know she isn't that smart.

Tired, I like you! You know the saying, the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree? Well her apples are really close, they either know who she really is and don't care (just along for the ride) and are as evil as she is or they are as clueless as she is.......... just saying
