Clarksville City Council; What’s new? Not much

 

City of ClarksvilleClarksville TN – The 2013 edition of the Clarksville city council was sworn in this week. They also held their first official meeting of the year. So what’s new?

Not much.

Voters had real opportunity to make change this past November, but as we’ve seen, we say we want change, but we’re not willing to vote for it. It’s a real curiosity to me that with all the complaining, and the obvious need for something to change, the voters just don’t seem to care. Why do we keep putting the same people in office, then gripe about what they’re doing? «Read the rest of this article»

Election Day 2012

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – On Election Day polls opened at 7:00am, but I didn’t get going till 9:30am. My first stop was to vote at Smith school. After I voted, I took a few pictures before I headed off to the Election Commission.

“The elections today have been busy, very busy,” said Rita Wilson, the chairwoman of the Montgomery County Election Commission.  A lot of people decided that they wanted to vote today, but they had not bothered to check and see where they were supposed to vote.  So we are having a big backlog of them coming in and phone calls about that.  But I think that people are really excited about election day,” according to Wilson.

The day after

 

Hank BonecutterWell the votes are in.  The people have spoken.  On a national level, it appears we’ll have four more years of economic struggle, attacks on the middle class, a health care system that is a disaster, and a national defense strategy that is virtually non-existent.

But the people have spoken.  That’s what makes this country great.  At least we get to vote, whether we like the outcome or not. I respect the will of the people.  We don’t always get our way and all of us find that very difficult to deal with. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville City Council reaches new low

 

Hank BonecutterI think we can all agree that we’ve had about enough of politics to last a lifetime. Especially local politics.  November 6th can’t get here quick enough and THAT’S  an understatement.

What once was a process that brought out the best in our city AND country, has now become an ugly display of hate, and division. That display has never been more evident than within our own Clarksville City Council. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville City Council Ward 9 race gets personal

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – The race for Clarksville City Council in Ward 9 turned ugly this week.  What had been a fairly low key, non eventful door to door campaign among four candidates, has been turned up a notch between challenger Jeff Robinson and the incumbent Joel Wallace.

During a TV taping this week  for the Leadership Clarksville Political Forums, Wallace called out Robinson for his handling of the Parking Authority while serving on that board, then questioned Robinson for hiring an out of town attorney to handle his bankruptcy following the 1999 tornado.

Robinson and his wife own the Blackhorse Pub and Brewery in downtown Clarksville.
