It is curious that they continue to attack him. What are they diverting attention from?

Perhaps some mysteries about things in this city will be solved. When the masks come off it usually some creep.

General Discussion / Re: Are Elections safe from tampering?

It is very interesting that several posts have been made on various social media sites that indicate there are problems where votes are showing a different candidate than the one the voter selected. So far the race vote changes reported by voters have been a Germantown Alderman race?  One  race is the same race that a certain sitting SCEC member held a fundraiser for as well as donated to. Coincidence? If only investigative authorities would have investigated after the last election with the same kind of issues perhaps the mystery would have been solved.

Interesting -- Lakeland also puts in a second moratorium -- yet they recognize that their citizens have no "taste" for apartments. 
Does not matter if they are standalone or part of mixed use.

“I believe the citizens have spoken very loudly, especially in the last few weeks,” Cunningham said. “There’s just no taste in Lakeland for apartments right now.”

In other action, the board tabled an amendment for the long-considered Lakeland Commons development but approved a pair of residential projects.

In supporting the moratorium, the mayor echoed concerns that 800-plus multifamily units already approved for Lakeland Commons and The Lake District will strain the city’s infrastructure from sewers, schools and other services.

“It just behooves us at this point to hit the brakes a little bit on multifamily development as a whole,” Cunningham said. “I believe that could be something that could really crush us over time.”

The board agreed with him, voting 4-0 in favor of the moratorium.

The city last instituted an 18-month moratorium on multifamily developments in October 2019, but Cunningham believed some people could interpret that resolution as dealing only with stand-alone multifamily structures. The new prohibition encompasses all multifamily developments including mixed-use projects.

if you want to see the video it is above you can see how Smart Growth is ruining the city. Remember that  the proposed rubber stamp candidates-Hicks, McCreery, and Ueleke-who are funded by developers and are doing whatever the city tells them to do.  Vote for Terri Fowler Johnson, Brandon Musso, and John Paul Miles who are independent and are responsive to the citizens!

the corruption by McCreery stinks to high heaven. I'll  approve your abortion of a building project and you will give me a campaign donation. When will the feds and state investigate? We know Amy Weinright is as corrupt as the rest of them.

2 articles that reference the developer, Laurynas Petrauskas, who donated $1,000 above.  Jon McCreery, as chair of the Memphis -Shelby County Land Use Control Board, cast the tie-breaking vote in favor of this developer, despite extremely vocal opposition by surrounding neighbors and citizens.

The developer Laurynas Petrauskas said he is surprised by the opposition because he spoke to nearby residents and owners who told him they were okay with the townhomes being built.

Will Muller also lives in the neighborhood and said the townhomes are blocking the view from outside his home.

“We aren’t against things coming in, we want more people in the neighborhood but its just gigantic,” Muller said.

During the meeting, chairman Jon McCreery spoke in favor of the townhomes and how it could increase the property value of the neighborhood.

“I like the idea of a guy trying to do something different and re-energize the block,” McCreery said.

The townhome's construction will move forward but residents plan on stopping it.

Margaret Pritchard, one of the Land Use Control Board members who voted against the development, said she agreed with the concerns brought forth by residents.
"This structure is way out of character for the neighborhood," she said before voting. "It's way too tall. It's just inappropriate."

Jon McCreery, chairman of the board, said he thought the project could be fuel that drives vibrancy back into the neighborhood where deferred maintenance is visible on some of the homes.
"I don't see what's wrong with some change," he said before casting the tie-breaking vote in favor of the development. "I don't think we should be unabashed and be the next Nashville, but I don't see what's wrong with some development."

Wow! This is eye opening. It is a mystery how so many can not seem to see anything that has been going on.  From citizens to media to those agencies charged with holding the corrupt accountable they seem to be willingly wearing blinders because they refuse to believe those they grew up with, have gone to church with, have marched in Christmas parades with, etc would ever do anything at the expense of others much less be as vindictive as some obviously are.
