I would think that the first year would be for learning the law and understanding what is going on within the organization. Attending one training and getting your picture in the paper does not qualify one for this job.”

“It’s so ironic, the POTUS tweetstorm will probably be the impetus for World War III. How sad. Yet, so many fail to see how wrong they are in selecting this man. OK, it’s time to acknowledge the problem and it’s not fake news. He is creating his own news and serious leaks.”

“So glad to see Mr. Calderone writing about Midway. People need to wake up.”

“How can the board of education continue to spend all of its money when they refuse to give our paras iPads to help the kids?”

“Someone asked why Buddy Carter voted to cut Medicaid? The new cuts to Medicaid are for able bodied people who don’t work. Get a job.”

“Oh yes, Mayor Pray, I agree. You really need to give those people out there working in the heat a raise.”

“The officials of Midway need to worrying about building the city instead of a $2.7 million city hall near the sewer waste spray field. We need to elected officials this year with the ability to help the city grow.”

“I think we should give an award to the DMV and post office for the most rudest employees. They have the most rudest people I’ve ever met.”

“I think they people of Hinesville should pick the manager if they are going to fire Mr. Edwards who has done a wonderful job for years. I think maybe it’s a little racists.”
