Good-dog...i assure you that NONE of my facts are "misplaces"....let me explain this again (this time in a Step by step process), so you can better understand it.

C4C's website was set up in a way that ANYONE could have started a new discussion, added to existing discussions, but would have to FIRST be approved by the admin.

The morning after the public forum, there was a computer coding error...it was allowing some new posts and new topics to post WITHOUT approval. By the time the web master caught it, there was some bad things written by citizens that were available to be viewed by all. BUT, there was still other topics waiting to be approved as well as postings that were slanderous toward elected the officials (I SAW THESE WITH MY OWN EYES!).

The web Master (My neighbor & Pal) Took the blogs off, because of 2 reasons....

1) He wanted the focus to stay on the development...We'll deal with elected
officials later
2) He couldn't keep up with all the messages and new topics pouring in (which
again, were off topic of the development)

So, again, I assure....there are no facts misplaced!

Also, the conserns that I cited....those are just ones that I had heard from several people that I know. I, personally, could care less about the thing. What I do care about, is the fact that our elected officials were elected to be the "PEOPLE'S VOICES". It is quite apparent that the alderman, and Mayor, are doing what they want, and are not listening to the majority of the people. The good news, we'll be able to vote on the issue, the bad news...the mayor wrote the question (which makes it seem we live in Wonderland).

Well here are your choices: you can continue to rant, and attack people, you can vote when the time comes, you can move, or you can choose to educate yourself further in the matter. If you truly believe the Mayor is doing whatever he wants then you have to do your homework. You can't just say it without having something factual to back it up.

Do you work for the City? Do you hear every discussion or sit in every meeting? They have to make tough decisions for the city everyday. They are educated people and I choose to believe they have the best interest of Columbia and its people at heart. I mean seriously, why would they do something to lose the favor of the people when they know it doesn’t do them any good come election time. But then again you can't please everyone all of the time.

We all get that you are upset but attacking people is not very conducive to your cause.

I suppose after the vote, the City and its citizens will know where the majority truly lies. To say, at this point in time, that the majority is for or opposed to the development is a guess. Perhaps the elected officials are in fact representing the majority; it is disingenuous for one to believe that his opinion or social circle is the majority.

But I'm always right, always in the majority, and never listened too. How can this be? Shocked
