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.

Tom, give me a break. There are people in Chamblee , holding Chamblee back intentionally ,atRead Moreleast eastern 1/2 & the newly annexed area. If you have bought in an area that has basically been deserted of any development, then you might understand my concern. We are stuck in the Dresden, Montclair and Cross Keys underperforming schools. From the minute you cross into Chamblee boundary on P'tree all you see are 'available' and 'for lease' and 'for sale' signs. The downtown is vacant. The surrounding warehouses are vacant. The huge swath of land called the international village has sat vacant for 10 years. Looks like it now might become a solar farm. Councilman Thomas Hogan has stated he stands to profit substantially if this comes to fruition. Wonder how many JOBS this will bring to Chamblee, while filling Toms pockets? Whose gonna complain? Noone around that'speaks english , they won't care. Maybe one day the investigative reporters can come snoop around. The DECA neighborhoods are being turned over to investors. Why would the people help facilitate this ? I don't know that either. I assumed when I moved here, the prosperity of Brookhaven would flow over, but have since learned the folks building in Brookhaven refuse to build in Chamblee! Tom , while you hang out at the Chamblee ice cream caboose, you'll find me in Roswell or Decatur. Cheers!

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.
