Clyde Taylor Vs Mark (JR) Stambaugh no question here. Stambaugh . Taylor is in a low orbit around a distant planet. He qualifies as an Atlanta Carpet Bagger or maybe an Eggplant .
Joe Biden Strickland Vs Mark Drury. No one wins here I am afraid. Drury may be from another solar system. He has made every mistake anyone could possible make running for office. He possibly could have been a sure shot if he had never spoken. One of Strickland's first acts in office was to try to give himself a raise as a retired county employee. Retired county employees should just go away but their like Jimmy Carter. So I will go with Drury.
Hunt Vs Brunson. Another no win race. Hunt has made many mistakes. Wasted time on chasing Unicorns and meaningless things that cost money. Good intentions but there were other more important things than window dressing issues and appeasing county STAFF. Some of the highest crime rate statistics in the state and she goes after smokers and the county logo. Mary is a wonderful person, she is just lost as a politician.
On the other hand Brunson is the definition of a Chamber hack that goes from one Board to the other. As a commissioner he would have Woody Woodside on speed dial. Nothing will ever change with those two running things. No new blood, just a bunch of creepy old men in adult diapers trying to run things. Brunsons comments to Ryfun on the radio last week was that he didn't see any problem with how the Boards and Authorities pick their own replacements. I guess not. The Chamber has been doing it for years which is why we have tourism related people on every Board and Authority keeping manufacturing jobs out. When the Air Port director was asked to leave because of conflicts and we almost lost hundreds of jobs, Brunson hired him back. Stambaugh labeled Brunson as one of the ring leaders in being an obstructionist. Mary Hunt did for once spend herself in a worthy cause with problems at the air port.
Got to go with Mary, at least she is better to look at.
