Boyd Vs. Lambert - And Response

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Last week I start writing an opinion piece for my support for Tim Boyd. I’ve kept an eye on Mr. Boyd for more than seven years now. I’m glad I didn’t submit that piece because at that time I didn’t know the truth. Well, I did know the truth, I just didn’t know how low a power structure would stoop to have their way and keep the “good ol’ boy” system working in their favor. Now I know. 

Brent Lambert is most likely a good guy, but I do have my doubts as to his intellectual abilities. Anyone can play the part of a puppet, especially when there are rewards attached. When a man doesn’t think for himself, he leaves himself and those whom he leads in peril of the thoughts of others. Brent would have us believe that he is the reason for Exit One of Interstate 75 developing. Not so. It’s a direct result of the Costco and Cabelas building down the road in Catoosa County. Exit One has been a diamond in the rough for many years and was going to happen with or without Mr. Lambert. However, he has used it two ways. First, to take credit for East Ridge coming back to life (when it’s really 5 percent of East Ridge coming back to life) and second, a $5,000 bet the developers made that they could buy Mr. Lambert. But that’s only part of the story. 

Tim Boyd is one of the true statesman who serve today. He will work hard and tirelessly for his community. I’ve watched this happen. All the while he doesn’t care whose feathers he ruffles if it mean shining light on darkness. See, Tim Boyd knows that “politicians’ and others of power have no shame. That’s why he will stand against mismanagement of our tax dollars. The “big boys” can’t stand that, and that is why you see Mr. Lambert and the power structure orchestrating their well-timed smear campaign. They have nothing else on which stand. 

So, it gets down to this; you will vote for Tim Boyd and “We the people” or you will vote for Brent Lambert and support the system of “minions and lackeys” and help them do their dirty work. It’s that clear cut.

Boo hoo hoo!!  It’s always someone else’s fault, isn’t it Tim?  Try to be a real man and take responsibility when it lays on your shoulders.  You are as inscrutable a person as I have ever seen.  That would easily be proven if any of the Hamilton County voters bothered to read the falsehoods, untruths and outright lies that you threw around while opposing Curtis Adams. 

Am I a Brent Lambert fan?  Not particularly.  However, I would vote for a dead dog before I would cast a vote for a rebel-rousing troublemaker such as yourself.  I hope the voters of District 8 realize that while you are crying “Victim, victim!”, you are no better than not-my-mayor Andy Berke when he cried that he wasn’t caught having “lunch” with his employee at Las Margaritas.

A Successful East Ridge Bake Sale

Saturday's event at the Camp Jordan Pavilion was nothing more than extraordinary, if not history making.  Alongside the threatening eminent domain letters the citizens of East Ridge received, a Union was formed amongst the East Ridge Police Department.  Coming to City Council the night of April 26, I had only one thing I was focused on: eminent domain.  ...

Remembering Barry Parker

The news came like a thunderclap, jolting and unexpected…followed by that painful silence awaiting a clash of lightning and the dreadfully long hours of solemn rain. “Did you hear that Barry passed away,” read the message from our mutual friend John Wilson. Not “Barry Parker,” but just “Barry.” John could have sent that message to hundreds of people and they would have instantly ... (click for more)

Dalton Swimmers Win CASL City Meet

Chances are really good that Dalton coach Jason Mezaros will sleep good Saturday night. No question he is dog tired after directing the Chattanooga Area Swim League’s annual Bill Caulkins City Meet, but he will probably sleep with a smile on his face after his Dolphins captured the team championship Saturday night at Fort Oglethorpe’s Arlene Crye Municipal Pool.
