As many of you know, I have been involved, heavily, in the upcoming primary for our city government which will be held on May 8th.
Last night, the S Ellen Jones Neighborhood Assoc and the East Spring Street Neighborhood Assoc sponsored a debate among the three candidates for city council in the 3rd district.
I was unable to attend the entire debate as Knitting for a Need was last night as well, fortunately another concerned and proactive citizen in our community was there to tape the event. Let's just say it was a good thing I left early, I would hate to have been escorted out. Citizens of the third district hear this. I have nothing personal against Steve Price, he's always been polite to me, and he's an extremely talented musician, I applaud anyone who takes the step to serve in public office. However, he is not the right person to represent the third district. Not only is he just plain ignorant on SEVERAL topics, but he doesn't care to get more information. He says he wants the town to go back to being Mayberry. NO. New Albany never was Mayberry, ask any NA history buff and they'll be able to tell you that New Albany has always been progressive and on the cutting edge. You can have the small town feel of knowing your neighbors and feeling safe, but that doesn't mean we have to sacrifice on other things.
Please watch the following video and take to heart what's really being represented here. This is not to point out when he misspeaks, there is so much more then that. (There will be more videos posted as they are passed along to me)
