The Catalyst Fairhope Council may be in it’s last days. The Council and the council’s legal representative has been asleep at the wheel. Instead of checking out all the legal ramifications of a change of government they selected to remain silent on the matter. They got bad advise and thought the decisions were that of the council and they were in control. WRONG the citizens are in control and Catalyst is worried.

FAIRHOPE – CATALYST a Dirty Little Secret


The Fairhope City Council is an “at Large” elected Council. Each of the members of the Council is deeply connected to the machine named for now, Catalyst; some by blood. The present council was…


Fairhope please vote for a change of government and put a stop to the most obstructionist council in Fairhope history.

CONFUSION: that is what the council wants you to believe as the main reason for the council taking action to cancel the Oct. 2 election. They want to blame the citizens for their mistakes. The council never sponsored a single forum or public meeting to explain to the citizens anything about the change of government. The Mayor did and she was right and they were dead wrong.

The Council only reacted after the Attorney General weighed in with an opinion that did not sit well with the council. PANIC mode has them trying to spin the issue to the public in any way possible, creating further confusion, hoping to cover their tracks and delay a lawful election.

‘Very confused’: In Fairhope, uncertainty abounds ahead of special election

‘Very confused’: In Fairhope, uncertainty abounds ahead of special election

Fairhope voters are scheduled to decide during a special Oct. 2 election whether to change its form of city government from mayor-council to council-manager. During a candidates forum on Tuesday, uncertainty about what the switch might mean dominated a Common Sense Campaign tea party forum.


The most valid reason to change government structure, is the present Catalyst Council. If Fairhope goes to a Mayor/Manager form of government, their will be a Mayor and one councilman at large and three councilman from districts. You would think that would be a compromise.

Please remember the present council is “at large” and the good ole boys need city government to remain “at large”, another valid reason to vote for a change.

Now is the time for Fairhope to move forward, Please vote Oct.2nd for a CHANGE IN GOVERNMENT.


FAIRHOPE CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT The Fairhope City Council is on a roundabout and doesn’t know where to exit. The present Council is an “at Large” council, they are not going to vote for change.


Read the latest 🎉 Terrific Tuesday 🎉!


  1. The change will be great for Fairhope. Plus catalyst was gonna run Jay Rob against Karin.

    Jay fumbled and is now benched until 2090.

  2. Keep the council all “At large” to keep Catalyst in power. Corte needs to get a few more subdivisions approved.

  3. There are so many grammar mistakes in this article, it is very hard to read …..

    • At least Ripp writes the truth – he may not be the best grammar expert but he does post the FULL news that the Fairhope Catalyst Courier does not print.
      Did Chuckie Cheese put you up to writing this – or are you really Chuckie himself? Hmmmm??????

    • Doubt if the judge Jay gets can stop it.

    • I think you mean grammatical….

  4. Again Fairhope council looks ignorant. Maybe it IS time for a change?

  5. Got a flyer yesterday. Told me to vote for the change in government.

    So we can have nice things.

    They can only hope to delay the election. The probate judge already stamped it valid. I guess they checked all the sigs to see if they were legit? What else can the probate judge do?
    They have 90 days according to the statute to hold the election.

  8. Looks like the council didn’t believe the mayor. They believed Jay Rob.
    Whoa. Curtains. As Trumpy would say, “Yuge!”
