What a sweet story. Thank you for sharing.
Kevin, no one is asking for a vote. The Gov will appoint someone.
I love it when people start ranting and raving about things that they are clueless about. For instance, BUZZ seems to think that Gwinnett County is able to generate a revenue with red light camera. So BUZZ, how much revenue have the camera's generated??? Just like MACK711 said, some cities have ditched the cameras because they couldn't break even. @JACK, the yellow light timing was actually increased to at red light camera locations to allow for fewer citations. All cameras intersections had to conform to O.C.G.A. 40-14-22.
Well said "Dman".
I like her response. She states that a former colleague had an ethics complaint lodged against them for supporting a local sales tax in the past. Why in the world would she want to put herself in that same position. Then she basically says that you should vote how you want to, don't let me influence you one way or the other. It is clear by reading the article that she supports the T-SPLOST. As the BOC Chairman, she would do whatever she can to avoid raising property taxes, so a user tax is a great alternative for her.
You are correct. Perjury. I'm not sure what the punishment would be for that but I am sure that it's a slap on the wrist. So charging him with perjury and letting him stay in office would have been a bad move. i think the DA did the smart thing for the county by forcing him to resign before bannister could do more damage.
@Dubbin, what charges was Bannister facing before he resigned?
Please remind us pcjohn exactly what bannister was being investigated for?
pcjohn, i still don't get it. What do you know about either case? Specifics, plea deals offered, evidence, mitigating evidence, other factors, anything at all??? The problem is that you don't know anything about either case except that the outcomes were not satisfactory to you. So instead of giving Danny (who has all of the facts) the credit that he deserves after doing an outstanding job for this county for 31 years, you choose to bash him and call him names in a public forum.
