"Fact is, the anti-jail faction lost the election, so now they want bite after bite at the same apple by demanding a referendum every time they don't like something."
Fact is, I am not part of the anti-jail faction that lost the election. Be blessed:)
"Here we go again...."
Poll published by The Pilot June 17-
Does the bond issue for the new DC warrant a referendum?
Based on those numbers........I'm afraid it's going to keep going and going and going and going. I believe the Energizer bunny won't have crap on the opposers! LOL! As I have stated to Mr. McGraw in another post the Commissioners have the power to make it go away. At this point it seems as if they are just not willing. Be Blessed :)
"STOP THE TENSION CENTER!"
One way this can be toned down is if the people get an opportunity to vote on the cost therefore they will know that the people have truly spoken. No blame could then be put upon the Commissioners. People just getting on this thread and trying to defend our Commissioners actions as well as to why we can't/shouldn't vote has not been nor in my opinion will ever be successful. Has it gotten us anywhere thus far? Obviously not if you felt compelled to say at this point "stop the tension." The way these people are defending them I believe is hurting them more than helping them. As I have said in a previous post....have the Commissioners do something out of the norm....make it a "monumental moment" in Moore County political history by our Commissioners taking a few steps backwards and letting them vote. That action would then show the people the Commissioners are truly trying to be out for them..... by wanting to hear their voices. At that point no one would have to defend them. As for the location if the people had the opportunity to vote and were given all the proper information....well then the people have spoken. If the size of the DC has considerably changed from the time of voting to now then adjustments need to be made. Size and/or location should be voted on again. Of course by doing this it could possibly cause a lot of work and plan changes but then the people will know that again the Commissioners are standing for the people's views and not just their own. Ignoring the people's voices and the way some have acted trying to defend the Commissioners I believe has played a big part in the cause of this chaos. By not having the opportunity to vote can really make one think that there is something greater for someone or someones somewhere.
It is bothersome that it has been put out there that the group of opposers are nothing but a "small" group. Based on the poll taken by The Pilot published on June 17 asking if the bond issue for the new DC warranted a referendum 68% said YES while 31% said NO. Those numbers are not reflecting a small group.
If nothing more is done for the people than what has been put out there thus far come election time I believe there will be some changes. In my opinion the ones who can "stop the tension center" is our Commissioners Mr. McGraw. Be Blessed :)
Thanks so much!!!!!
You might want to try reading the article again! I believe that you may have misunderstood it. Someone didn't die. The horses did. Not that she shouldn't be jailed for that but didn't want you to misunderstand the story and make it out to be something that it isn't! LOL!!! Thanks for pretty much the same advice in the other article!! Looks like I need to do a little "more" reading while you may need to do a little "better" reading before we start commenting!!! LOL!! Be blesssed my friend:)
@RmeMP Okay I won't. LOL.............LOL..........and a little more LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes......and obviously you missed it :(
I understand that we voted at election time..... this has been said many times before.....what I'm saying is vote again. Put this to rest so we may move forward. Have our Commissioners take charge and stop the uproar that is going on and do something more than just defending themselves. I hate to see anyone have to do that. Make it a historical moment.....do something outside of the norm for the greater good of the community. Vote again. What ever wins....wins. Then the people will know that truly the people have spoken. This has been nothing but a "pissing" match. It saddens me for our beautiful community that there are so many people that as a result of this now can't stand eachother.
I'm sure what I have said will be shot down for whatever reasons and that's fine but it would be nice to see someone take charge and come up with a solution so we can get back to loving our neighbors. Divided we are falling. God help us.
"To the Victors go the spoils!" Let's break ground on the new detention center as soon as possible that way the members of the gang can take up their toys and not play with the majority of the citizens of Carthage!
How about........Let's take a vote and see exactly who the majority is and while we are there we can also vote on the cost. Seems fair enough to end all of the nastiness from everyone.
I'm so happy for you all. LOVE to hear endings like this!
