Some of those who have commented keep asking for VUI to address the issues in our own back yard, those issues being Anderson County Council. Fair enough. VUI thinks that the last county adminstrator was a big government liberal and that the last county council was pretty dadgummed abusive in how they spent county money. The folks at VUI loathed the past county council of Anderson and its past adminstrator, and made fun of both.
However, the new Anderson County Council seems little better. They seem to be out for their own financial interests, in making moves to get paid for legal fees and the the like, and dwelling on the past.
The Mayor of Honea Path addressed Anderson County Council last year and made the case against the former County Council. Unfortunately, the same is true of the current Anderson County Council.
Indeed, when will Anderson County Council get down to doing the business of the people? When will the Anderson County Council get to the business of real conservative reform and stop allowing the ex-adminstrator to dictate what they do?
The behavior of the Anderson County Council makes no logical sense. Perhaps it is love or money that makes them act so crazy and against the interests of the people that elected them. Perhaps we in Anderson County are watching Council member Cindy Wilson play out the role Glenn Close played in Fatal Attraction in a political nature. Ms. Wilson will not be ignored. Or perhaps is she playing a political Captain Ahab leading her band of followers on council on a hunt for the white whale in the form of putting Joey Preston in jail.
Frankly, VUI thinks the Anderson County government is nuts and sees it as an impediment to making lives better in Honea Path and the surrounding areas. The majority of county council seem to have an unhealthy political obsession with Joey Preston and the former council members they defeated at the polls. The acts of Anderson County Council makes one question the sense of home rule in Anderson County.
