Here is a local politico who is tied in with developers-and has supported the wilmington agenda for more taxes and spending and Hamilton supports more forced annexation. She has accomplished nothing-Ok maybe that is what qualifies her for best in show?

I CAN’T AGREE WITH EARLIER POST–I THINK PADGET DESERVES TIO BE #1 IN COMMUNITY-
SHE NOT ONLY HAS VOTED FOR HIGHER TAXES AND SPENDING
SHE HAS VOTED NUMEROUS TIMES FOR FORCED ANNEXTAION
SHE SUPPORTS GIVING TAX PAYER MONEY TO THE ARTS
SHE HAS ARROGANTLY SPENT TAXPAYER MONEY

GIVE HER A CHANCE-SHE HAS EARNED IT!!

With all due respect to the ladies-let’s be fair. On all the points you mention let’s give credit where credit is dserved. On all the points you folks make we can add the Convention Center, the Gravely/McColl gift and our very own SKYWAY GOLD PLATED BRidge to the list of Saffo accomplishments. The ladies have done their share, but if we are really fair and objective Saffo take the case-along with other things.

We have media like wway3 and the few good politocs we have are subjected to sleaze attacks from nut cases and this station. No wonder we have the likes of the cast of characters on city council-tomey-padget-sheridan-saffo and the other boys and girls. Thank heaven for some new blood-they may not last long but at least we will have an improvement for a little while. Transparency-no to the arts using our money- a budget on line- a willingness to take on special interests–not the clowns on city council- I’d take the county leaders anyday–and that includes thompson
