Coming into focus

Joe Wilson, belatedly, on video on the issues.

I wish I could vote for Joe, but alas…  District 2 is my home.

In the at-large race, I’m really digging Bill Knight on some of the issues.  I’ve got some decisions to make for my three votes.  Perhaps the question I posed at Knight’s will give me some direction.

Update: Knight has garnered my vote on the strength of his answers to my, and others’, questions.

    Whoever gets elected must deal with Linda Miles, Mitch Johnson and probably Chief Bellamy. There is so much mistrust now that our city has become polarized. We need to heal and the only way possible for that to happen is to remove all three of them. How can the new Council deal with the problems of jobs, gangs, water shortages with so much negativity and mistrust.

    In all of my seventy plus years have I ever seen Greensboro in such a mess.

    Bill Knight and I are having our signs stolen in several areas of Greensboro…we spoke today as we were putting up our second set of signs! We’re hoping it’s just some kids, but I’ve gotten about 15 phone calls today from friends who said my signs were taken last night. Thought perhaps it was a “trick or treat” type of thing, but now I believe it must be otherwise.

    This happens every election season. One year signes were disappearing at the instigation of a local radio personality. Otherwise, I believe it is indeed a situation where it is a prank by young people. After all, what experienced, knowledgeable, well-run campaign has the time to include “sign stealing” as a part of its strategy?

    I agree with JW, Marykay.

    I had signs removed during my campaign as has every candidate who has ever had them. It is rarely ever found to be a part of any organized effort.

    JW asks: “What experienced, knowledgeable, well-run campaign has the time to include “sign stealingâ€? as a part of its strategy?”

    I bet it is Sandy’s.

    I’m from the country and out there they say “the bit dog barks ” When my signs were taken(80 of them during the course of the campaign)we tried to pretend it was not politically motivated but,as the signs were repeatedly removed from the same location it began to look suspicious. On election day my poll workers arrived to find all of our signs missing. Later in the day, My opponent called the N&R to say that he and I had an altercation of some kind over the matter of signs being taken. It looked to me like a little kid who runs in the house to tell in order to avoid getting the switch.
