Dependable Erection

They've gotta go

So, everybody and their brother at the county commissioners meeting tonight knows how the vote is going to turn out. The only issue is whether or not the 3-2 vote will be sufficient to grant the rezoning approval. And that, apparently, will depend on a ruling from the county attorney.

So why are Chair Michael Page and Commissioner Joe Bowser willing to spend 15 minutes arguing about whether or not we need to take the time before the public speaks to learn what Lowell Siler has to say about the document received today from NCDOT referenced below? It's a cut and dried, yes it is or no it isn't statement that would take all of 15 seconds to read and process. Is NCDOT's rejection of SDD's easement legally valid or isn't it?

We won't know until the kabuki theater runs its course.

Those men cannot be re-elected to the BoCC in 2012.

UPDATE: Put Lowell Siler on the list of people who should be looking for new jobs too. Oh, and Joe Bowser? Last i checked, the North Carolina Attorney General is elected by the people of North Carolina. Civics 101, it shouldn't be over your head.



  • I'm watching at home. What in the world would be harmed by saying "yes, we need 4 votes".

    I also want to know what he knows. He started by saying "we all know it's invalid" and then did not elaborate.

  • Yeah, and maybe Julie Seagroves can help sell some of the $40,000 vacant houses in my neighborhood before we start building half million dollar town homes 15 miles out of town, with neighborhood schools and no outside transportation.

    How the fuck can they rule the petition invalid?

  • Yeah, but what's 6% on that.

    I've got no idea how they could legally. However, simply things like legality have never stopped the BCCC before.

  • True enough.

    Pretty amazing that supporters of the project can cite neighborhood schools as one of the benefits.

    Wish i had a neighborhood school in my neighborhood.

  • Not to mention Jackie Wagstaff calling out "some of the the bloggers."

    How does she have an ounce of credibility left in this town?

  • I want to go to that strip club.
