Brinson asks governor to call Ethics Commission meeting – Alabama Political Reporter

By Josh Moon Alabama Political Reporter U.S. Senate candidate Randy Brinson on Monday called for Gov.

Are you not tired of the same old BS from career politicians or politicians that use their office for personal gain, like Pittman? Well your alternative may be Mr. Brinson. He may not be well known and certainly is not a career politician but would be a breath of fresh air compared to the above.

Please vote in the primary and think carefully who you want as Alabama’s next US Senator. Be careful you do not send a swamp rat to the swamp.

  1. Good job Rippster. People used to not know about the corruption. Now they’re talking about it. Thanks.

    • Georgia Orwell | August 4, 2017 at 9:14 pm |

      I agree with Klondike! We need to get 20/20 to dedicate an hour to Baldwin County and greater Alabama politics. When did Alabama agree to give its tax dollars to criminal politicians?
      However, The Ripp Report needs to hold everyone’s feet to the fire if it expects respect; Karin Wilson is finally beginning to get her priorities more in order, but she cannot receive a free pass if Ripp expects to maintain respect.

      • Orwell, that would mean taking an objective approach to the mayor’s job performance, and you probably shouldn’t expect that kind of rational discourse from this blog.

        • Francis Paul Ripp | August 5, 2017 at 9:32 am |

          Stay Tuned

          • Jester Triple-Six | August 5, 2017 at 5:25 pm |

            Francis, I want to make a proposal to you – I will be the editor on the Wonderful Wednesday once a month, but I will change that edition’s name to Jester’s Court. My edition will be published once a month and we will bring back voting. Witnesses can submit evidence, people can vote on the issue at hand then I will issue a ruling at the end before the next Freaky Friday Edition! It’s a hell,ve’ idea, so what do you think little buddy?

            • Jester Triple six dumbass has 6 out of 19 posts as of 11:15 august 6th. Shut the fu$k up Jester. Ripp. Why would you not just cut this fool out of posting. Everyone knows and has seen the way that he and the council buddies have taken advantage of the voting that you use to have on this site. There was no one that didn’t see plain as day that they purposely racked up according to the yes or no that they wanted to. Any person that does not scroll right past any Jester Triple-Six post realize that he is just a stupid, warped individual that is causes trouble. I can tell you that this person lives a double life and has threatened people on other post sites. He is dishonorable and one day he will find out that people who threaten, call people names and accuse others of untrue things will pay a price. Jester Triple-Six is a person that there Ass cannot cash they check that Their mouths write. Enough said. What bullshit can one person be allowed to keep posting. Admin of the Ripp Report need to do their job. We are not being entertained. Just a few weeks ago there were a couple of people who said that anonymous 2 even got to Jester Triple-Six while complaining about anonymous 2 and basically giving thumbs up to what Jester continues to post. What is wrong with you people. I have no doubt how many stupid people including Jester has got to get their fix on this post and that’s just shameful. But hey, what else has Jester proved to is. Nothing. I’m sure he will tell us over and over again. But it’s still nothing.

              • Jester Triple-Six | August 6, 2017 at 11:49 pm |

                It is very clear that I have struck a nerve about all of the mayor’s misdeeds. If I did not call out the mayor everyone on this board would give her a pass! She has no morals, lies with impunity, has all these ideas with no way to pay. So you seem to like a mayor that carries out a fraud for years at the club, you like a mayor that fires folks and lies about it, then looks for a reason why. You like a mayor that spies on employees, creates a hostile work environment, a mayor that assaults employees! The list goes on and on. You wait, the mayor is going to pay a heavy price for her misdeeds. You are just as low as she is, you are a damn fool.

                I don’t give a Ripp what you think!!!!

              • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 2:52 pm |

                LOL…causes trouble! That is what others say about Ripp. Francis, are you going to let Anonymous say those things about you?

      • Francis Paul Ripp | August 5, 2017 at 9:31 am |

        She will not get a free pass, if she did what Jack did at the Airport, I would expose the facts the same as I have with Jack. I am not going down rabbit holes involving the day to day problems that always exist in running a small business or a municipality. I am also not going to give much credibility to fired, retired or those who quit.I am looking at the bigger picture and you will see that very soon.

        • Jester Triple-Six | August 5, 2017 at 5:18 pm |

          Paul, you have given this mayor a free pass on everything.

          In the bigger picture of things, you have an audit function. That internal audit function reports to the board, and not the CEO directly, usually a dotting line. That is standard operating procedure within public companies. The City Treasurer is appointed by the council members. Her job is to ensure all the accounts payables are managed properly among other things. She would ensure there is enough detail on all invoices to provide a clear audit trail. She is to communicate with the council members if there are problems within the city concerning AP that the mayor wanted to manipulate.

          What if a CEO placed tracking software on the internal auditor’s computer? They would be fired!

          The tracking software on the city treasures computer is so serious that it should have created a criminal probe.

          Placing this spyware on others computers was morally wrong but placing this on the city treasures computer is a breach of internal controls. I would recommend the City Council Members create a position of the internal auditor that directly reports to the council, and on a dotted line to the mayor. The internal auditor will be on an unannounced audit schedule to audit certain functions within the city and can be used by the mayor to do the same if she needs something audited.

          What Mayor Wilson did by having the invoices lack detail, then place tracking software on her computer is

            • Jester Triple-Six | August 6, 2017 at 7:09 pm |

              Wait, Birmingham has been doing what for years??? You did not address the issue of Spygate with the City Treasure! And why do you always try and compare Fairhope to Montgomery, Mobile or Birmingham? You are not answering the question, trying to spin it again. Answer the one question – do you think the mayor did anything wrong by placing the tracking software on the city treasurer computer? IF not why?

              ALSO, you have been silent about Jester writing an edition! It is a fair offer! (Post 8/5/2017 at 5:25 PM)

              • Jester Triple-Six | August 6, 2017 at 7:13 pm |

                Well hell, it is actually 2 but could lead to 3 questions. I ran out of fingers and toes to count.
                Do you think the mayor did anything wrong by placing the tracking software on the city treasurer computer? IF not why?

                • Jester Triple-Six | August 6, 2017 at 7:13 pm |

                  ALSO, you have been silent about Jester writing an edition! It is a fair offer! (Post 8/5/2017 at 5:25 PM) Do we have a deal or what?

        • Georgia Orwell | August 5, 2017 at 7:56 pm |

          I agree that her ‘crimes’ are more the result of political inexperience (a good thing) and poor staffing (not a good thing). However, she is working hard to expose the truth of our city, and we can’t fix the problems until we know what they are.

          • Truth Teller | August 7, 2017 at 1:01 pm |

            Georgia – I often agree with your opinions, but this time I think you are wrong. Yes, she is very inexperienced politically, and she continues to reaffirm that on a daily basis. However, I think your statement is a major insult to the former City Treasurer, Tanner Bonner, Jennifer Fiddler and Sherry Sullivan. They were hard working, dedicated, talented employees, and the City is suffering their loss.

            • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 2:41 pm |

              Georgia, look at her shady past. Look into her ‘foundations’ that had to merged, there she and Botox on the foundation. Look at other issues, she makes all of these statements about how she has given back but just look deep at how she operates. Inexperience is different from lacking character or perpetrating a fraud. Claim up to 30,000 ft and look down, look at all that has happened then listen to her explanations. Georgia, you have been very objective on here, but you need to look at the pattern and practice from years before she became mayor up until now. It is not all the mayor’s fault it is the folks she listens too. Ripp when you are going to become a real reporter and start reporting the truth?

            • And the Builshit Post of the Year goes to Truth Teller!!! Yeah!!! Sorry Jester! I know you’ll reclaim it very soon. Why don’t you hire them Truth Teller? The way you go on and on about everything. You must just have piles of money. You might even be paying for them to post and sue at the same time. Go get em Truth Teller. You are awesome!!!

              • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 2:48 pm |

                Psst, psst, hey Anonymous, then why don’t you defend the mayor and her actions, both in office and out? Are you okay with what she has done? That is your kind of politician, someone that is ‘slick’. Defend the club membership! Defend the Spygate! The hiring of unqualified friends at high salaries! Firing of witnesses, and you know, all of the witnesses were fired. Obstruction is what may hand Trump!

                • The Anonymous | August 8, 2017 at 1:42 pm |

                  Psst. Psst. Jester Triple-Six. This article is not in regards to the Mayor. That’s what is wrong you and your sidekick Truth Teller. Y’all always make up bullshit that has nothing to do with your posting towards the current Ripp Report. Don’t worry though. I’m just about use to y’all. Lol

              • Truth Teller | August 7, 2017 at 4:30 pm |

                *Bullshit. Spellcheck. Because Ripp never goes on and on and on and on and on about anything…..

  2. Mo gets my vote.

  3. 9 total total comments as of 6:45 Saturday. 3 are Jester Triple-Six and 2 are Ripp’s. What’s up?

  4. WELL, I can’t wait!!!! The time is almost here!! It about 6:30 on Sunday evening on this day, August 6th, 2017. That means that in less than 220 hours we all will be able to tell Boom Boom Trip Pittman that he is no longer needed and congratulate him as being the sorriest politician, businessman and Lying Bible thumping (hypocrite) and your buddies (there are a crap pile of you) that we have known and have had to put up with not just while you have been in office but for many, many years before. I know of no other person that needs to be thrown out on top of his head and to hang his head in shame for being truly the sorriest PERSON that I think I have personally have known for the past 40 years. I have personally stood beside you, sat in meetings with you and read all the bull crap that you actually stand for. The only thing you give a crap about are two things and God is not even one of them. It’s yourself and money of course. You have traveled this road all of your life and that possibly may have earned you a first-class ticket straight to hell. The only good thing I can say about Trip Pittman and the pathetic path in life that he himself has chosen is that Fairhope Council President Jack Burrell has had his own his feet walking on the same path along side Trip Pittman for several years now and there is no getting off the same path for Jack Burrell. Along with a few of his buddies too! So I say to you with the greatest of Joy in my heart and knowing that God has listened to my prayers and has played the biggest part in that you finally will become no one except THE sorriest ex politician in Alabama and the rest of the U.S. and also not much of a decent human being either. I bid farewell to you Trip Pittman. This election was a gift from God himself. We will be rid of you sooner since Governor Kay Ivey has made the suffering even shorter. So long Trip Pittman. I cannot say that it’s been a pleasure. I forgive you and I know that God forgives you. I don’t wish any ill harm towards you. But, I certainly hope that nothing positive for you ever comes into your life after all that you have taken from good people and that the sun will never shine on you and your dark and pathetic lies and life that only YOU are responsible for. Greed is a terrible thing. You are the poster child for that word for sure. If I should see you one day in Heaven then I know you must have really worked hard and straitened out your life. I really hope so. If I don’t see you. I’m sure the people that you meet in hell will all get along with you just dandy! Thanks for all the screwing and especially all the lies! You are without a hint of doubt, one of the all time greatest!

    • Lane McGowan | August 6, 2017 at 8:40 pm |

      Trip still will get his heavy equipment contracts that should go to legit contractors.

      • Oh yeah. Sure Lane McGowan! Trip Pittman is legit all right. Suckerd us about being an oil recovery contractor and then left all the Boom anchors out in the Bay “after he was paid already to remove them”. Legit contractor means doing everything the contract says to do especially when you get paid to do it. Lies everytime he opens his mouth. While there are a few around that know how to stop it. He won’t be getting all the heavy equipment contracts because we are going to punish those who give any contracts to Trip Pittman for heavy equipment contract or for any contract for that matter. Government or corporate. We the people who have been bent over by Trip Pittman is now going to have our turn. Get you pencils out other heavy, light or medium equipment companies. Very soon it will be your turn to not only get more contracts but some of the ones you have been screwed out of especially some of the municipality’s contracts that were letting Pittman know what you all were bidding.

      • You have to be legitimate first. Pittman Tractor company is not

    • Jack sure loves him some Trip.
      Damn shame.

      • Fried Trip
        Trip Creole
        Boiled Trip

    • Jester Triple-Six | August 6, 2017 at 11:39 pm |

      Damn, that was the most babbling rant ever! Well, maybe close to the one Francis posted a few months back when he went over the edge. AND Who are you to place yourself in the position to forgive anyone? You can look into anyone’s heart to know what they think! So you are without sin, I can clearly see this! Saying that State Senator Pittman or anyone else has earned a one-way ticket to hell is absurd! You need to forgive yourself, and may God forgive you for all of your sins! Hey, you ever noticed how Governor Ivy looks like Jeff Sessions twin sister? Look at them side by side, they look like they are brother and sister!

      • Why Jester. You are correct like you said in your post. I can look into anyone’s and know what they are thinking. I’m glad you finally figured that out. Thank you. It takes the average Jester a lot longer to figure this out. Good job!

      • Don’t forget to include yourself Jester?

        • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 5:21 pm |

          I do not look like Ivy or Session!

          • You are right Jester. You look more like the part that resembles a fig between the cheeks of my butt. Stay on the subject. Last time I will tell you or Truth Teller. Period! Go ahead.

      • That’s the most hilarious post I have seen by Jester Triple-Six. Jester telling someone else to forgive and even bring up GOD! Jester, you are certainly one person that will never have the right to tell someone that they shoul ask for forgiveness. You certainly don’t have any right to post GOD in any of your pathetic posts. You are a heathen and much more closer to the devil without being and posting as a hypocrite. Be off with you!

      • Tired of It! | August 9, 2017 at 1:33 pm |

        You got us all beat for the rambling award. Nothing Again to do with the current subject. Jeff Sessions and Kay Ivy looking alike is just another one of one of your typical insane remarks. Just remember the word typical jackass. I don’t think people are going to continue to put up with you much longer. You and Truth Teller had nothing positive to this site. Only confusion, hatred and distractions regarding the different subject that are written about each week. Jester centainly means fool and Tuth Teller has followed your lead and is just as much of a fool as you are now. I’ve warned the both of you for weeks and Jester for months. It’s y’all badgering the Mayor constantly every on every Article so matter what the subject is about. I would quickly start my own blog. Just saying!

      There you go again. Truth Teller. You are hooked. You are too funny. Knew it from the first time you posted. Someone was keeping score and playing games, or you are playing games. There are more anonymous that represents more than one person. But I told you a long time ago. If you really are a good person and have a nice family. It would be stupid if you to make any comments unless you are making one of your own about the article itself and not what’s you scream or cry or become a smartsss about someone posting or posting about what you said. Let this site be for the crazies and leave it alone. Post if you must. But don’t be the stupid one that I really don’t think you are. You and your family are welcome.

      • Truth Teller | August 7, 2017 at 1:04 pm |

        Right, because all of your comments are about the article….

        • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 2:32 pm |

          “Let this site be for the crazies and leave it alone.” Hummm. So this site is for the crazies? Are you call Ripp crazy? Ripp, I would not take this, ban all the Anonymous(es).

          • I get it that many of the city council votes are routine or obvious to normal people but I think it is unhealthy that the three who attend the same church have voted as a block on every single vote this year. It allows a small group to dominate the agenda. I have other problems with these and other members but Fairhope is too large to have a majority of the council all members of the same group. Not knocking the church, but given the bloc voting I think it’s a problem.

            • Jack is a Christian.
              In the Pittman mold.

              • He goes to that same church, right ? Here are the controversial votes this year in my mind:!
                Fly Creek I am with the Mayor
                Moratorium. Both sides for it
                Hiring Freeze. With the council
                Budget items: I am generally with the council
                Airport Board: with the Mayor

                Coming up: Control of the Marina

                I think council undecided, but I am against Mayor and them also if they want the City to run everything. Maybe a middle ground will develop.

                • Jester Triple-Six | August 7, 2017 at 5:11 pm |

                  Fly Creek – Mayor for political reasons/City Council for legal issues/No Fly Creek Apartments if possible.
                  Moratorium – Both Side/Need growth but controlled/Wayne is great.
                  Hiring Freeze – City Council.
                  Budget Items – City Council.
                  Airport Board – Mayor/her right to name but City Council gets to confirm/Compromise.
                  Coming Up: Marina – Limit city involvement/Keep it leased.
                  New Budget – Tighten but increase mayor’s salary and up the city council fees/Both are paid too little for the work required.
                  General City Government loses money – but it all comes from one pot. If an increase in taxes outside of city limits, then decrease utility bills, do use the excess money from utilities to pay for other ideas reinvest all monies into infrastructure.
                  Allow for more private/government projects/limit government involvement.
                  We are all from a small town, going to same church is like saying they all eat at the same Restuarant or go to the same bookstore to drink coffee together so they vote the same. 3 do not block, all 5 have blocked or 4 out 5 have blocked.

                  • Jester Triple-Six. You are threatening and dangerous and you are insane. Most people are both. Just like Yourself. Why don’t you grab the idiot Truth Teller and the both of you go jump off the RSA building in Mobile. That way we don’t have to clean up the pile of crap that you two will make and we all can post with ease on hear without getting blasted everytime. Thank you both for agreeing to do this. It’s best for the both of you.

                  • Jester. You can suck a golf ball through 10 feet of a garden hose while you post page after page. I’ll let you pull on mine since you are so good. Dang. And you complain about everyone else ranting. Geeze!!!

              you bet and it is all about covering Jack’s guilty ass as well as Boone now Brown is playing follow the leader and will go down the drain with them or become a moot player.

          Okay Truth Teller. I’ll take another 2 or 3 days off from this site just because you think that all the anonymous handels are just me. You have convinced me that you are Stupid!! So there is no point for me to post or body this site for anything for another couple of days. Just like I didn’t this weekend. Damn. I even tried giving you many opportunities to show that you were not a stupid person and not a really a Dumbass and you just keep proving me wrong. Later Dumbass. I know you make your family very proud of you. Keep playing your little games if that what you want to call it. Everyone else here sees it as showing your ass. Might want to think again that there are many people that use anonymous. I started when I left Friday using The Anonymous. Wake up!!!

          • Truth Teller | August 7, 2017 at 2:42 pm |

            Um, I took 3 days off because I had and have better things to do, and this topic doesn’t really interest me. Nor do you. You flatter yourself. And if you think I’m so “stupid”, why do my comments irritate you so much?

            • Why are you copying the “time off” answer? I’ve been reading about all these things that are getting posted several times but I couldn’t help see that you also said you took 3 days off after someone posted the were going to be gone for the weekend. Makes no sense. What does it matter. Stick to the article and quit falling for all these people traps. It makes us all look stupid. Tell us who’s going to be out next US Senator or do some of these candidates deserve to be candidates in the first place. Or even the next Alabama state senator. Tell us what you think besides falling for all this stuff and blaming other people for playing games. They do it to really make you look stupid and I don’t see a single trap that you haven’t stuck your foot in yet. Christ oh mighty!!!!

                    it is sad, i think they both may be right about a lot of issues.

                    • I have no doubt that there are facts and bullshit and a whole lot of stupid going on. Stick with the facts. All this other stuff (especially the back and forth) is just ignorance showing it’s true colors.

                    • There are not many defending the mayor on here. Even Ripp has not defended her much. A lot of bad stuff about her past has come out. She is her own worse enemy.

                    • Georgia Orwell | August 7, 2017 at 9:10 pm |

                      She is definitely her own worst enemy (if one does not count her loyal ‘besties’); however, I still believe that she is trying to do a good job. If Botox and Maser would resign and she were to hire experienced staff, I believe that she could truly do something good for Fairhope. She seems to be trapped in a 7th grade slumber party and can’t seem to get out of it….I feel sorry for her lately.

                    • Just fire the durds and be done with it. That’s what the Mayor should have done with the 3 witches that were fired after the Mayor first took office.

                    • Francis Paul Ripp | August 8, 2017 at 5:56 am |

                      You obviously missed the Vision meeting. Botop is going after grants that Fairhope never even applied for and if you think Lynn Maser is not qualified you certainly are in the dark. Lynn is a seasoned professional and could do Jennifer and sherry’s job at the same time, while standing on her head. I guess you think Kant was doing a great job!

                    • What type of ‘professional’ is Maser supposed to be? I haven’t heard of any type of high level corporate or government experience. I did hear her rattle on at a Council Work Session about how she contacted dozens of marinas around the country and was advised that Fairhope should run its own rather than leasing it out. The woman appears to be able to make a simple phone call and take a survey but she has not displayed any critical thinking skills. Comparing most of these marinas was akin to comparing apples and coconuts. Karin needs to cut her loose fast.

                    • Professional, who is a professional? Botox? Please!!!!! Maser? Please!!! The mayor loves stray cats, old habits are hard to break.

                    • Truth Teller | August 8, 2017 at 8:13 am |

                      Oh! Is that what you meant about poor staffing? My apologies for disagreeing with you. I agree that getting rid of Botox (she does not even have a college degree) and Maser (know virtually nothing about her) would be a great start. I think her intentions are in the right place, wanting to protect and preserve the city we all love, but she can’t seem to get out of her own way, and has been too distracted by all the other issues that have come of her lack of experience.

                    • I was against The Botox hire but at the lower pay level position I think she has been competent; certainly not dead weight. Maser also seems to have been competent. I do understand that the then new mayor needed some city employees she could trust. I am giving the mayor a pass on the hires even if she went about them with disregard for procedures and rules. There are bigger fish to fry where which way the City goes can make a big difference. Right now it’s the Marina. Also the City should be considering a new bond issue to address all infrastructure probs right now. I think we are getting a handle on what is needed. Also might be good to sell as much of the airport and adjacent properties as possible. Not saying do it, just look at the possibility

                    • That’s not this week’s subject of the Ripp Report is it Jester followers? So many people go straight to the posting site without reading or in fact not even knowing what the subject is. Read it or at least know what the subject of the Ripp Report is. Before you scroll past straight to posting.

                    • Sorry. It’s boring to me. Strange and Brooks make the runoff. Strange wins. I wn

                    • Sorry. The Senate face is boring. Strange and Brooks in a runoff.
                      Strange wins. I am wondering if Trip is as horrible a person as some of you say. I think you assume the worst motives with not so much to back it up. Anyhow, he won’t be US Senator.

                      If y’all don’t shape up a North Korean middle might find its way to Baldwin County. Now that is one guy with bad motives.

                • Yes you do. Um. I took 3 days off! Lol lol lol. The Truth Teller is saying the same thing as the post did before him but said he had more important things to do. If you read all the posts from Truth Teller he is certainly lying. There is nothing more important to him than posting on this site. Give us a break. We all know your BS and track record. Really doesn’t matter what you post from now on.

            • Francis Paul Ripp | August 8, 2017 at 6:01 am |

              you and jester 666 are making idiots of yourselves. You cannot take loosing and miss following a looser. You cannot stay on topic in fact sometimes you give the impression that you have difficulty reading.

              • Jester Triple-Six and Truth Teller make fools of each other everyday and every article they say the samethibg. Attacks on the Mayor and acting like they know everything about Everything! while ruining this posting site with all their stupidity and accusations and spitting fire back on anybody that attempts to tell them they are idiots and losers themselves when even at best someone will asked them to discuss the article at hand and they still want to BS and tell everyone how great they are and ask why don’t we talk about the Mayor? Well, the most recent Ripp Report concerns the US seat and State Senate seat of Alabama and some of it’s candidates. But Jester Triple-6 and Truth Teller have said nothing after posting half of the 73 comments on or Against the Mayor or more attacks off subject of course. They are a joke to this site for anyone that is even trying at the very least, to find out what is THE CURRENT article is about and the opinion of others, without all the BS posting about other subjects that have nothing to do, Again, with the current Wednesday or Friday Ripp report! This has been going on for MONTHS!!! and even the people that just read and don’t even post have had it. Jester Triple-6 and Truth Teller should write their own Blog and have people comment on them and shut up regarding the Ripp Report. Go bug the hell out of Gulf Coast News. They are certainly a better fit for you two misfits. Thank you.

              • Jester is not an idiot, this guy is intelligent so he can not be a councilman. He knows too much has to be on the inside, city employee or former employee of city or bookstore. Truth Teller is not that smart – Jester is crafty. One day!

        • Exactly. That’s why fools like you are so easy to make fun of. Lol

          • Hell. You could write a book on just the posts from Truth Teller and Jester Triple-Six

    Take a Trip to D.C.
    Vote Lee Pittman U.S. Senate.
    Make Fairhope proud!
    A true grit Republican.
    God bless.

    • You should be standing behind a Christian if you were truly true Christians that have a Prayer Group. Having a Prayer Group and standing behind a known thief that took advantage of taking money for something he didn’t do makes your Prayer Group null and void. You should pray for him to be a better person and then maybe add things to it little by little. Anyone that takes money for a job that was not completed and polluted our bays on purpose by leaving the BP anchors to hurt our waterways for us, our children and our grandkids. I pray that you won’t be so disappointed when Trip Pittman loses by a huge margin.

    Trip may win Baldwin County. I heard he won the straw poll at Elberta Elementary.

  8. Montrosewoods | August 9, 2017 at 7:11 am |

    Trip was going door to door last night. Said thangs are positive.

  9. Fly Creeker | August 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm |

    I saw Trip at WalMart buying cleaning materials and lite beer.
