Chairwoman Smedley, Be the People's County Mayor

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Good grief, everyone saw this was Mayor Jim Coppinger’s last term. Mayor Coppinger supported everyone except his supporters that got him elected, and threw we the people under the train.  Watching the mayor cozy up with liberal elites on the courthouse steps made him completely worthy of last term.  I was there, and this offended many conservatives that voted for Coppinger. Frankly, it felt like betrayal watching the courthouse steps debacle.

 

Last term mayors are toxic, and may change their spots during their final term.

This is when huge property tax increases and bad law is enacted.

 

We all knew that Mayor Coppinger was not running again, when he kept selecting government agencies, such as WWTA, and the liberal elites over citizens.  I followed WWTA’s attempt to build a wastewater plant in the worst and most populated area.  I thought, has the mayor lost his mind?  Then the mayor’s behavior declined to a new level.

 

Mayor Coppinger proposed an over the top property tax increase.  This was the absolute clincher Coppinger was a last term mayor. I knew it.

 

What the mayor’s supporters will remember is how the mayor threw we the people under a waste water and property tax bus.

 

At the same time Mayor Coppinger, please don’t hurt we the people anymore. We the people are exhausted from tax increases and wastewater treatment plant proposals in populated areas.  Instead, take a nap, take a long lunch with your family, stay in Hixson with the rest of those elected folks, and give we the people a break.

 

Chairwoman Sabrena Smedley has been there for the citizens on all counts and all debates. There is a huge difference in representing special interest versus the will of the people. It can be a hard place to be. Chairwoman Smedley showed her true colors in both debates, and decided the people were who she represented, not special interest.

 

Regular people have been served by the chairwoman during the effort to force $34 million in additional property taxes for citizens. She was there and spoke up, while everyone else was crickets.

 

The “silence was deafening” from others when it counted on big issues. If they would not speak up during the property tax debate or support citizens during the WWTA wastewater plant debate, they certainly will not speak up when it counts.

 

Chairwoman Sabrena Smedley did, and that is what makes leadership

.

Hamilton County Chairwoman Sabrena Smedley, please pick up the reins and be our next county mayor. 

 

Make history and be the people’s first female county mayor. Sabrena Smedley has proven herself as a leader holding the reins of the Hamilton County Commission.

 

We need a mayor that represents people. Chairwoman Smedley has proven herself worthy.
