Murray Picks Up Another Endorsement In Mayor's Runoff

Deborah Anthony, who lost her city council bid, also endorsed Kevin Quirk in the District 3 runoff.


Sandy Murray picked up another political endorsement in her runoff bid against J. Max Davis for Brookhaven mayor.

Deborah Anthony, who lost her bid for District 3 city council, endorsed Murray on Thursday. She also endorsed Kevin Quirk, who will face Bates Mattison on Dec. 4 in the runoff for that seat.

"I believe Sandy and Kevin will provide the representation we need for the city of Brookhaven," Anthony said, in an e-mail to her supporters that was forwarded to Patch.

On Wednesday, Murray was endorsed by Jim Eyre, who won the District 2 city council race, and is currently the new city's only elected official.

A total of nine candidates entered the District 3 race. Only 10 votes separated Mattison's 875 votes from Quirk's 865.

TomMiller, I appreciate your response.

Kevin's a great guy. I've just known Rebecca and worked with her on neighborhood issues for years and thus feel she would be a better choice.

To Eric H @ 8:11pm -- Tom Miller has it right. JMD IS an arrogant prick. I've known him for over 30 years, and he has always had a supercilious attitude. You will recall that Gibert ate his lunch in his first political foray, and Jacobs trounced him in his second attempt in politics. Didn't you ever wonder how an unknown outsider was able to beat the homeboy so soundly? May be because of his attitude? You say J has done a "yeoman's job." Not sure that you realize it, but you are right on the money there. That expression arises from old English owners of small parcels of land who were too poor to hire help, so they worked from sunup into the night. All they did was work hard, but they had no special skills and weren't very smart. This sounds a lot like J. Yeomen were also among the lowest-ranking people in social circles, having to attach themselves loyally to royalty to get any recognition. Does this sound kind of like the relationship between J and a certain sitting state representative you know? Yeomen were also the lowest-ranking military people, performing administrative or clerical duties because they weren't fit enough for battle. Again, sounds like J. Please tell me again why you think these are good qualifications to be the mayor. -- The Maven

Wow, you are making me feel young. And that doesn't happen much these days. I disagree with your slant on the phrase Yeoman's job, though don't deny its in the same general area as my use of the term. I also couldn't disagree more with your proposition that J. Max is merely a lackey for Mike Jacobs. A definition of Yeoman's Job: Doing a good job all round; working hard and competently. The phrase is associated with work that doesn't require specialized skills and can be done well by tackling the task industriously. Yes being the head of BrookhavenYes and even Mayor of Brookhaven if you think about it doesn't require a specialized skill set, Someone that does a good job all round by working hard and competently is exactly what I want. Throw in that J. Max is a smart guy, good communicator and listener and I think he's an ideal choice for mayor. Might I ask what qualifications you feel the other candidate has that makes her the better choice for the job? I mean I can see how you could make that argument with Larry Danese but not with you know who.

Low you must have lost touch with reality. Do you think these vendors contributing to J Max are doing so because they only want what is best for the people of Brookhaven? Pull head out of sand and come back to reality. They make these contributions because they want influence on RFP's/Contracts from the city of Brookhaven. Knowing that you will be in a position to vote on these bids, it is completely unethical to be taking money from them. Maybe legal, but let me educate you. Legal does not mean ethical. Our Mayor Candidate is trying to make DeKalb look good and is off to a very good start.
