Baldwin County needs more representation on the county commission. People will say “just more talking heads.” The population of the county is topping 250,000 and the county only has 4 commissioners. The Commission should be an odd number so as to never tie or have a possible deadlock in voting on issues.
Currently only four commissioners represent the entire county. With only four people voting a chance of a deadlock, split vote, is high. A split vote usually results in each commissioner getting in their trenches and nothing being accomplished.
Remember the terrible duo, Commissioners Chris Elliott and Tucker Dorsey? They formed a block vote of two. They had prior meetings before being sworn into office. So the first day they could fire staff. Many of those staff had told Sen. Trip Pittman they would report him if he took any BP contracts during the oil spill of 2010. Pittman took the contracts and Elliott and Tucker covered for him. Pittman finally resigned only for us to inherit Chris Elliott, who is unopposed and should be deposed. Tucker Dorsey was voted out of office, thank god, and is rumored, still in the sewer business, how appropriate.
Baldwin County is about to make the same damn mistake. Jeb Ball and Johnathan Armstrong as commissioners on a panel of four, will be a huge mistake.
Steve Carey is the third candidate and he is Tucker and Catalyst’s boy. However don’t be distracted, Catalyst and the good ole boys will be just as happy with Armstrong. Either way a block vote will be formed, that is the plan, and Baldwin County will suffer for four more years.
District two needs someone that does not have so much baggage, is independent and avoids the block vote. Matt has pledged to work full time as a commissioner. Ball and Armstrong will be working part-time because they have a second paycheck with government. Matt McKenzie should get your vote. He IS the best choice.
VOTE MAY 24th FOR MATT McKENZIE DISTRICT TWO COUNTY COMMISSION
I was already goi g to vote for Matt. The more I learn about him the more I like
But with the other three being a Catalyst/SCB, what good will that do?
You got to start busting this political machine somewhere.
HEY DEMOCRATS! GO AND VOTE FOR MATT IN THE PRIMARY. YOU CAN BECAUSE ALABAMA IS AN OPEN PRIMARY STATE. AT LEAST WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TO AT LEAST RELEASE THE CATALYST/STRANGLEHOLD OFF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
I am a Democrat and I will vote this Tuesday in the Republican primary to vote against the catalyst group like many others. We will break Boone’s hold on the county
This group must be neutralized
The machine is a bunch of phony Christians that must be stopped
Remember what AEA did to bump Bradley Byrne from the primary for the Luv Gov? Riley was so mad he called the Legislature back to strip AEA from tenure
Ha ha ha. It worked too good
I have known Matt McKenzie all his life and he IS the best one for the job.
Yes, he is
Fairhope has 50k. We have room for another 50. Chill.
No, it does not have that room. Already the roads are clogged, schools are crowed, sewers are overflowing, and electric grid is overtaxed
You outside builders are robbing the people of this town of the quality of life. That is why God made Hell – to out fake Christian lying thieves when they die. Be nice now and I will send you a glass of ice water
