Earlier this year Commissioner Daly and I (Tona Monroe) sponsored a resolution asking congress to pass legislation, which has passed the House, to repeal draconian EPA stormwater regulations. The resolution passed despite Bryan Daniels trying to kill it so he could get credit for giving the farm away to bring jobs (a composites manufacturer?) to the area. Our area would have to be in attainment status in order for the manufacturer to come in the area without having to install more pollution control equipment.
The Blount Partnership/Chamber of Commerce and what ever entity that Byran Daniels and his cohorts choose to be at the moment have blocked Commissioners Jamie Daly and me. Despite the secretive, back stabbing, pancake eating, ribbon cutting, PR stunt craving ways of Daniels and Mayor Ed Mitchell, Jamie Daly commented on one of the Facebook pages of the royal deities about the possibility of more industry for the area. Did the hard hitting comment, “Now we can have more industries.” instill in Daniels such a paralyzing fear that he felt the need to block communication with an elected official? That comment was hardly a hard hitting rebuke, like I am known to deliver.
Bryan Daniels, his Chamber cohorts, Ed Mitchell, Chairman Jerome Moon and Bob Norris who hides behind his anonymous editorials are PR sensitive wimps. Anyone can be a boot licker and take credit for giving the farm away. Benjamin Franklin did it for years before he finally realized it was time to stand up to the crown and fight for the rights of the people.
