    tim potter is a nice fellow, but vann scott has got my vote. The carpet yarn property has been appraised at more than $250,000 It would be a good investment for the city even if they have no plans for it right now, and alcohol sales would help the city. I can't vote for anyone that try's to hold boaz back. Sorry tim, but that's the two reason's you lost my vote. P.S. jrp61356, Bobby G. Nunn needs you down in Guntersville with him. y'all could play batman and robin.

    Jrp61356, below is your sixth post in your posting history.
    In those six post you have stated your opposition to the one cent sales tax increase, the reopening of Main street, the building of the public library, denounced all sitting councilman and accused Ben Shurett of having a personal vendetta against David Dyar.
    While you have not denounced the idea of the aquatic center you certainly are a long way fro embracing the idea.
    No doubt you are a "CAVE" person.

    Tim Potter just earned my vote, for two reasons. First, I am in total agreement with his reaction about voting against alcohol sales. We go out of our way to educate youth about the evils of drinking, but at the same time the city is considering legalizing alcohol as a means of generating revenue. For those who think that doing so will bring in scads of new businesses, ask yourself this: how many new restaurants has Albertville gotten since going wet? Answer: none. So the argument of legalizing alcohol for economic purposes doesn't stand up.

    Second, at least Tim Potter has the nerve to actually answer the question. In every other instance I have seen, where other candidates were posed this same question, they all gave the same generic, non-responsive answer: we will abide by the voters' decision. That's great, but none of the other candidates expressed their personal opinion on the issue. They were too busy hiding behind the voters.

    As i have stated many times, the "no" voters decided the last wet/dry vote.
    Not the folks who voted yes or the folks who voted no but the ones who said no, I'm not going to vote at all.
    Let's send a message on Tuesday that the yes voters will decide the November 6, election!
