Just a few moments ago, VUI got word that by a 5-2 vote, Anderson County Council voted to buyout the contract of Administrator Joey Preston and send him on his way. More details as they come in. An era of division in Anderson politics appears to be coming to an end.
Update: Council just named Micheal Cunningham the new Administrator. At least Mr. Cunningham will be administrator until January. Who knows what the new council will do.
Another Update: As expected by some, all political Hell seems to be breaking loose over tonight's moves by county council. People are talking lawsuits and criminal charges. How unfortunate. The anti-Preston folks have won. Preston is gone. We can now move on a with a conservative pro-growth agenda. Cindy Wilson and her crew are acting like the dog that finally caught the car. They have no idea what to do next other than to talk about getting that damn car. Preston's gone, people. Celebrate, don't hate.
