Why So Silent CBL About Role?

Friday, January 11, 2013

Oh come on CBL, either you hired Waterhouse PR to seize and tag onto a genuine citizen opposition movement in Hixson for your own corporate financial interests, and hired Waterhouse PR, or you did not. 

The question posed by Chattanoogan.com is not a trick or difficult question, a yes or no would be very easy. Did CBL hire the Waterhouse PR firm or not? The “no comment” from CBL is quite an entertaining response. CBL should not get a free pass.

All the people involved, except the Hixson citizen group, have financial interest as priority, and have shamelessly used these citizens who expressed real concerns for the land impact to their community. Shame on all tagging onto a genuine community issue for your own benefit.

It is undisputed that the Hixson Hill Top developer is represented by Derryberry PR, who also produced campaign marketing documents for Councilwoman Pam Ladd.  No conflict there. 

The Hixson citizen’s rallied an opposition effort to protect their community. Waterhouse PR comes on the scene to help the citizen opposition campaign for CBL is indeed the allegation. If it is true, this reeks at the most underhanded level ever, to use citizens in this manner.

It is clear that everyone has money as their top priority, except the Hixson citizens, and CBL has no comment about their role. In this case, the citizens deserve to know if the support from Waterhouse PR was genuine or CBL funded. 

There is no one credible in this entire matter except the Chop the Top citizens, minus Waterhouse PR. The developer has Derryberry PR, with Councilwoman Pam Ladd as her former client.

I hope the citizens of Hixson disconnect with these pit vipers trying to take advantage of them.
