Five Questions With Rebecca Chase Williams: http://tinyurl.com/9cmnh9t Ms. Rebecca has an impressive resume and the answers to the questions above leave you thinking she would be the perfect candidate for district #1. For a moment, with her concise, effective answers, she almost sucked in me. But, let’s take a closer look: She was a C$ND board member. Not transparent. She was involved with Brookhaven Yes. Not transparent. She was the reporter for almost every story that appeared in The Crier about the road to cityhood. Her articles were not objective writings about the goings on relating to cityhood, but more like propaganda pieces for C$ND, Brookhaven Yes, Rep. Mike Jacobs, and every other pro-city happening. Whenever possible, anything to do with the opposition was portrayed in the most negative light possible. It was not about being transparent and objective, it was about ramming a new city through by hook or crook and assisting Rep. Mike Jacobs do this at any cost. Not transparent.

Then there was famous email exchange where C$ND members were scrambling to answer questions about some fact checking the Crier (Ms. Rebecca) had done. Ms. Rebecca, being a C$ND member, was involved in an email exchange where she admitted being unable to answer financial questions relating to the new city that a C$ND member should know. “It’s above my pay grade… to figure out” was her comment in the email communication. Come to find out, the email exchange shows she was not the only C$ND member that could not answer the questions, C$ND President Doug Dykhuizen and Rep. Mike Jacobs were unable to answer the questions as well. Check out Mike’s comment in the article. Dunwoody Crier Reporter on Brookhaven Facts “It’s above my paygrade… to figure out http://tinyurl.com/9gsn7t9 Transparent? Not on your life. She will make an excellent district #1 councilperson! You folks deserve her!

Then we have Mr. Dick. In addition to their Crier propaganda paper, Mr. Dick has a Sunday morning TV politically oriented public affairs program. Instead of utilizing their media resources to rally the troops and better DeKalb County (Hey! We are still in DeKalb) they dog DeKalb County and DeKalb County School System with venomously while promoting their new city. Just think, if five years ago, they utilized their media voices along with Rep. Jacobs, Rep Taylor, Sen. Millar, C$ND, Brookhaven Yes, and a collection actively concerned of citizens, we could have been on our way to make our county strong and well governed like it used to be. We could have made great strides in correcting the degradation of our school system. Instead, our county and schools suck big time. And, we now have division within neighborhoods that have nothing in common with other neighborhoods making up this new city. Amusingly, Mr Jeff Dickerson, a Georgia Gang panelist, is a crisis communications public relations specialist and DCSS has been one of his clients off and on in the past few years. Objectivity? Well, why don’t you tell me! Please pass the yellow mustard!

Interesting article about journalists covering the news and making the news . . . Does this apply to Rebecca Chase Williams? Or, do the folks in Brookhaven District #1 really care? http://tinyurl.com/d2rm4bq Please pass the yellow mustard!

Mr. Roger, no one called the Patch a “rag” . . . Yet. However there is one in Dunwoody and we may have a “sister” paper “rag” here in Brookhaven soon! You know, governments always need a “newspaper” for their “legal” postings. And, you certainly know who that would be, right? By the way, you need to think of that gift left for you on your driveway as fire starter . . . It is about that season you know, and with three fire places I hope they leave three or four extra! Please pass the yellow mustard!
