Danny Terrell, Republican Candidate for Mayor

First off, let me state that I do not (at least at this point) support any candidate for Mayor of Mitchell. I plan on bugging the hell out of all the candidates I can, Terrell just happened to be the first one that stood out — probably because he stuck a yard sign in my mother’s yard, which I promptly removed. It’s on the front porch, Danny, if you want to come pick it up. =)

Without further adieu…

I noticed a lot of lip service in a recent Times-Mail article about Danny Terrell.

Referring to Mayor Chastain, Terrell stated, “He’s got his ideas on how the city should be run, and I have my ideas on how it should be run. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be friends.”

The citizens of Mitchell are curious to know what those ideas are. After all, that’s what’s going to matter when they walk into the voting booths in May.

“Every community has its Hamilton Boulevard, and every community can offer you sewer and tax breaks. What these companies want is a trained and educated workforce.”

Of course they do. Nobody wants a bunch of idiots working for them. The question is, what changes do you intend on making in order to be able to provide that trained and educated workforce to these companies? I have my own issues with the educational system, but I’ll keep those to myself for the time being.

In short, I didn’t get much out of what Terrell told Krystal Slaten, reporter for the Times-Mail. He seemed to be skirting around the issues. Mr. Terrell — and all other mayoral candidates — this is not what the citizens want to hear. They don’t want to hear your ideas or your opinions or what you *intend* to do. They want to know what you will do.

The people who read this website aren’t interested in bullshit, they want the truth once and for all. They want this city to change, they want the quality of life to improve. Tell them what you are going to do in order to reach that end.
