The only thing being subsidized in Gwinnett county is the discount on trash bills given to the senior citizens, in an election year of course. Who do you think is paying for that, Floyd? By the way, it's rather pathetic that you have to vote the "thumbs up" for all of your own comments.
Ok, Floyd, whatever you say. But I would say you are more than a smidge desperate to have to vote the thumbs up on your own comments. I am just sayin'....

Seriously, using the word "haters"? The only folks I ever hear use that term are the likes of Al Sharpton/MSNBC crowd, and it really lowers the quality of the debate. You would expect more from a campaign manager, but I guess demonizing any opposition to your candidate is a tactic you feel necessary to use when you are desperate.
In addition to the garbage plan (tax), he has also stated he is for increasing the sales tax as a trade off for lowering the property taxes, erroneously labeling it the "fair tax", without offering any specifics. More likely, this would be a bait and switch tactic, and our property taxes would never be lowered.
I think you misunderstood - I was referencing your August 9 comment (posted above) concerning the Gwinnett ethics law:
"The BoC needs to close this loophole ASAP. Politically motivated ethics complaints are bad but special rules for incumbents is not the answer".
The only reason the 6 month period that was written into the Gwinnett ethics law was to protect Beaudreau and we are the only county in GA with it.
Buzz, you won't be getting my vote in November after reading your August statement on the ethics bill and now watching you back pedal to defend Beaudreau. It seems like principle takes a back seat to protecting your buddy.
Rocknroll, the "something concrete" that R and all of us have to gain is to stop the endless waste of taxpayer money at the hands of Beaudreau. I am mad as hell about it and am glad that R is there to expose the truth. If you actually read any of the documentation that he cites, like the grand jury report, you might not be so quick to defend Mikey.
There is no question Joe Newton has a rap sheet. Just as legal authorities sometimes use former computer hackers to be able to detect other hackers, perhaps Newton would be the best person to detect a corrupt official since he has the mindset and knows where to look (where the bodies are). Interestingly enough, Mike Beaudreau has not responded to any of the accusations such as the $400,000 in taxpayer money spent for the golf course underpass at Summit Chase or his vote for approval of the county contract for copiers (his employer), a clear conflict of interest. If they are not true, why no response at all?
