I don't know which way people will think about them.
Would like to know who really paid for them. I can't believe a business would give out the information on their customers without a court order. But now we know who wants to buy the land out at the Fox Farm. Working with the mayor. Why did the town just hire an economic development person if the mayor is taking over that job too? I think the ammunition business was at the airport before evans was mayor. As to evans complaining about blistering attacks maybe he should look back at the way thing have been done since he has been in office. Nothing has been completed and HE DID NOT GET THE WATER FROM BLUE RIDGE. Don't know why he even wants credit as it isn't here yet. All I can think of the present mayor and council has done is spend money and not accomplish any thing.

wonder if anyone reads the signs or just sees them as standing graffiti?

Let's say for a moment you see nothing wrong with the signs. OK, now let's say that you are a fine upstanding person who is willing to put their life out for display and give their time to become an elected official of the town. Considering that HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? Thin it over. I KNOW ho it feels.

Back several years ago when I lived in Pennsylvania I ran (and was elected Mayor) of our small town. This was a town I grew up in, had been active in Fire and EMS and the business community and church for many years. A person, who felt they had a personal ax to grind wrote a letter to the editor of the local newspaper, while I won't go into to detail, I will say that none of it was true. I knew that, may family and friend knew that but I had to wonder what kind of an impression did it leave in the minds of those who knew only my name.

I was honored and humbled that a long time friend of the family, (who had known me since birth) wrote a positive letter to the editor that appeared in the following edition of the paper. discrediting all that had been said. As wonderful as it was to see that unsolicited letter I still was very hurt by someone who for no other reason, other than not liking me personally, would do such a vile thing.

So my point is, words do hurt, even if they are spoken for an unknown agenda. The person, or persons, who posted those negative signs should be ashamed. Why are you hiding behind some nameless faceless committee? What is YOUR agenda? and WHY did ONLY ONE of our current council members see fit to express outage?

Kelly. We all have to consider the source. I think maybe they are running scared so had someone put the signs out.
