Tom Miller - I have no dog in the Chamblee race, and, I disagree with the viewpoints of Mary... but Read Moremy interest was piqued by your statement about putting your money where you mouth was about Brookhaven, because all is not right in Brookhaven. We have a "City Gone Wild" (to parody the videos of similar name), we have very non-transparent governance, a Community Development department that is subverting the ordinances by refusal to enforce, or, misdirection of the ZBA, and sections of the town that are being figuratively raped by developers, which, in great irony, is the reason why it is such a popular city to live in. If that is where you put your mouth, then I don't know what to say. Some day, with better government it may become better & regain some of its beauty, but the damages being done today will take decades to rectify.

Mr. Porter, I "put my money where my mouth is" when I got sick and tired of Dekalb notRead Moredoi ng anything. 4 breakins, 1 police call took more than a day to arrive at my home. 1 police call started with the question "do you know who did it." Or no police down the street in 2 years. Brookhaven park trashcans overflowing, no county cleanup. I resorted to emptying the trash myself. I marked with a yellow chalk the bag put on by dekalb. The trash can would go unemptied for 9 days or more. Or the locked up tight bhaven fields. Corrupt- as in ARRESTED and indicted politicans, including CEO. So, I gave my time. I spent money on candidates. Funny thing? I donated to BOTH mayoral candidates. money where my mouth is. So now what do we have? I can tell you the Bhavn beat cop's in my part of town by full name. He waves. night watch officers say hello. I've never EVER seen a full trash bin more than 14 hours at Bhaven park or blackburn. Are there missteps? Absolutely. I would never do violence to the gravity or the term "rape" by marrying it as you have. Porter, you hate the city, that much is clear. The good old bad days of Dekalb are long gone. Will MAX davis screw up? Yep. Is what we have 100% better than Dekalb? no question? And Mary K, I saw Eric Clarkson TWICE at the frosty caboose -- which is located in CHAMBLEE.

By the way Mary K, stop hating life. I had a good burger at the PDK restaurant. My gkids loveRead Morevintag e pizza. My neighbor bought a good deal ford explorer at a local dealer. The service at the chamblee ihope is top rate. The new chamblee charter HS is the envy of many. Are there run down spots? Missy, you ever been to NEW YORK CITY? There are places in the 5 boroughs that make the WORST of chamblee look like bingo night at Dunwoody Baptist.

Georgia is stupid. Why do we elect so many horrible politicians? Oh yeah, it's because they have an Read More(R) after their names.

In light of last nights gunfire around Plaza Fiesta (and other recent shootings and late nightRead Moregunf ire in the area), maybe Chamblee and Brookhaven could work together and coordinate some police roadblocks. (please)

Patch editor, please monitor Bill Lowe and Cheryl Huvards comments. I believe these type of angryRead Morepe rsonal attacks are against the Patch TOS. Thank-you.
