I am running for Indian Trail council this November and I need your support. Tax revenue should be spent on the things we need such as Public Safety and roads. Let’s not waste our taxes on a proposed 8.3 million dollar town hall, and creating a police department that according to UNCC study, will more then double our property taxes. Let's put accountability in our town government. For more go to www.electdanny.org

I agree with Danny and will vote for fiscal accountability. Lets not waste money on a town hall that will be a tax burden for years to come. A new town hall would be nothing but a monument to those that get it started and then run for cover when the bill comes due. Same for our own police dept. We don't need it. The Sheriff's Office does a great job for us, I just wish we had more of them. Thats what we need to spend money on. The public safety commitee recomended more than the council approved, Shame on the council. The commitee was formed to study our needs and the council ignored it for the most part.

Elected officials represent the people and should not be censored by other officials. If the people are not happy with what an elected official is saying, then they have the option to protest and vote them out. The council shouldn’t restrict access to the town hall from any elected official unless there are grounds they did something illegal or unethical determined by due process.

Where does the 8.3 million town hall figure come from ? I listen to all town meetings and have never heard this number. If you could please elaborate.
From what I remember the building down the street purchased by the former council is too small. I don't recall the council discussing an 8.3 million building. If you could post the minutes or audio.

One example is in the July 22 2008 audio. It was also written up in The County Edge By Shirley Bossbach. You can contact me through my website if you like a copy of that.

Thanks

Sorry about that. I assumed you were inferring to the controversy between Mayor Quinn and the town council regarding the censoring and banning from town hall (non-public areas). Whether you like him or not, he is an elected official chosen by the people. As an elected official, he or any other official should go through a process to determine if that person has done anything unethically or illegal. There are a lot of people who would love to ban and censor a bunch of congressmen and senators from the capital, but that would not be right if they did not break the law. There needs to be due process. Speaking with the Mayor we seem to share a lot of the same common concerns for our town in wasteful spending, public safety, ext in which I support him. Correct me if I am wrong, I believe what you mean when you say,“Quinn must not gain the majority,” is that Quinn’s ideas for the direction for our town are not good and because I agree with those ideas, you are not supportive of me. I have spoken to people on the campaign trail that feel the same way you do. I think it’s a difference in ideology and I understand that. I hope I answered your question.

Thanks
Danny

Quinn started out as one personality and then changed dramatically once in office. His ego and self righteous behavior now have the public going deaf when he opens his mouth.

His rambling tone and self-imposed boy scout demeanor are boring and cancel out every "good" idea he may have.

He is rude, boistrous and likes to bully his way through every discussion.

If he gains the majority, it will only heighten his childish ranting. No one really knows what he wants for the town (except that he supports the sheriff's dept)- but the people of Indian Trail only know for sure his disdain for members of council and staff.

Sorry, can't vote for you based on your supposition that Quinn has good ideas.

So...you agree that throwing the baby out with the bath water is a good idea? Don't let you disdain for Mayor Quinn cause you to make a mistake and vote for someone who doesn't have your best interests at heart.

Fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me.

Anything or anybody connected in any fashion to our mayor, will not get my vote or the vote of anyone else that has really paid attention.

Any candidate that is endorsed by Quinn will not get my vote. period.
