Weddington Mayor - My perspective
Walker Davidson is not going to get my vote. I had never even heard of this man until he decided to run for Mayor of our beautiful town. I've never seen him at any town coucil meetings and he had zero involvement in fighting for or against private sewer plants in Weddington. Where has he been on issues that our dear community has been facing over the years? Who is this man really? He doesn't reveal much about himself and I'm guessing he's half heartedly in this race. Why even bother? Ken Evans was running for Mayor and dropped out and then came along Walker Davidson to fill his place. Ken Evans previously announced he was running for Mayor and when he realized he didn't have any support, instead of supporting one of his friends who he worked with on Friends of Weddington, he announced his support Walker Davidson.
Hughie Sexton, a long time Weddington resident, he has done nothing really over the years except cause controversy and has shown that he can't be trusted in politics. He has a record all right, but not one that impresses me. Having worked some beside Mr. Sexton on the private sewer plant issue before he quit Friends of Weddington, I was able to discern what type of man Hughie Sexton is. He can't be trusted, he's all about himself, he showed up to the Friends of Weddington meetings in hopes of getting political support.. the list goes on and on. Sexton QUIT friends of Weddington because he was upset over our attorney the group chose and that we didn't pick the one he wanted. His childish behavior caused much tension within the group. Friends of Weddington battled hard against this issue and won, no thanks to Hughie Sexton.
Mayor Nancy Anderson - without going into a lot of detail, it's time for Mayor Nancy Anderson to end her term in office. Too many questions have come up about her conflicts of interest with her being a large land owner in Weddington, NC. She supports cutting through Rea Road Extension through the middle of our sleepy community and has pushed hard to get this road moved back up as a priority road in North Carolina. What stands out the most to me is when Weddington town council had their retreat in Pinehurst, NC last year. Nice little get away during the worst economic times on record. Also convenient that most Weddington residents would not be able to attend the meeting where she had the power to influence the council on issues, out of ear shot. She handed them an educational packed on private wastewater treatment plants and how "green" they are and good for the environment. This was right before she would announce that there could be no communication among members or the community on this issue since there would be a quasi-judicial hearing on the issue. She will tell everyone today that she was against private sewer treatment plants, but that is after she got caught and the community turned against her. Her involvement on Rea Road, her involvement in pushing to get The Woods developers a sweet deal, as well her being a large landowner in Weddington whose every move makes people question what she is getting out of it sums up that Nancy is really all about Nancy. She has a lot to gain but at what expense to Weddington?
Barbara Harrison - she has my vote. I worked with her closely through Friends of Weddington. She's not a large land owner. She is a retired executive from Johnson and Johnson and she truly cares about her community. She is the best choice of all the candidates. I think she'll do an excellent job for our charming town.
