From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A secret society is a club or an organization whose activities, events, inner functioning, or membership are concealed from non-members. The society may or may not attempt to conceal its existence. The term usually excludes covert groups, such as intelligence agencies or guerrilla warfare insurgencies, that hide their activities and memberships but maintain a public presence. Baldwin County has its own secret society. A political cabal of politicians, developers, judges, lawyers, even a sheriff.
The Mayor of Fairhope and the City Council got hammered by the public, medical professionals and first responders over the city’s decision to have a large public gathering for the lighting of the trees. I must say that it was quite satisfying to see such a response from a community that often is not paying attention to city affairs. https://rippreport.com/take-a-chance/ Baldwin County Doctors and Nurses are advising the general public about masks, social distancing, and to avoid large public gatherings.
Fairhope you made the biggest mistake voters could make, you let the bees eat the honey. Only 15% of the registered voters decided who would become Mayor of Fairhope.

TOP 10 QUESTIONS for Sherry Sullivan and the general public. By now you all have heard these weak knee interviews of soft ball questions from Fairhope candidates running for office.

Where we should be… The explosive growth that Fairhope has been experiencing has not just overloaded our infrastructure it has put strains on our community in other ways that need to be addressed.

Fairhope is closing in on another municipal election so get ready for CATALYST and the ill informed to try and convince voters that they know best. The latest issue is the plan for the waterfront, pier and parks at the bay. The funding comes from the BP oil spill in 2010.

It is no secret that the Fairhope City Council is CATALYST through and through. It is also well documented that the council opposes, procrastinates or just refuses anything the Mayor may propose.
