Our critics portend to speak for others , is it possible that the local TEA Party indeed represents the views of those very voters who sent 3 sitting Supervisors packing ? Perhaps these same folks who use terms like “ we” when referencing just who wants higher levels of spending each year might consider that their views are the ones that are out of lockstep with the KW public, if the election results are to mean anything.
One of the most disturbing tactics our opponents are employing is the obviously insincere attempts at flattering Supervisor Stephen Greenwood, coming from individuals who never supported Supv. Greenwood, yet today use thinly veiled reference’s , stating that Greenwood has demonstrated a willingness to serve the majority of residents in King William. Does Mr. Mills mean the majority that threw out the tax and spend crowd, or what constitutes the majority as he defines it , or wishes it were. Can this man count ? Did he watch the MAJORITY of voters who declared they had enough ? Voters moved the Oligarchs cheese.
Greenwood has a record of advocating for spending cuts . Mr. Mills and Wagner insult the intellect of both Greenwood and voters with their thinly veiled efforts at manipulation. Our group has always supported and admired Supv. Greenwood, and I don’t recall either of these gentlemen being there . Stephen is too smart to fall for their disingenuous deceit. Through two election cycles I collected signatures, put out yard signs and worked the phones for Greenwood, I don’t recall Mr. Mills or Wagner being a part of that effort. I’ve witnessed Greenwood take on Tom Redd, and Trent Funkhouser, along with Travis Moskalski. Greenwood is the only one on that last Board with any principles . Our groups admiration is sincere and long standing, unlike these Johnny come lately’s .
Wagner splits hairs when he states…. “ Greenwood in his four years on the board has done an exemplary job holding the other board members in check by voting time and again to cut spending, however his fiscal conservatism was not and is not based on the agenda of the TEA Party “. NEWS FLASH Mr. Wagner—our agenda as you say is just that fiscal conservatism. The TEA Party “agenda” that these critics rail about apparently found favor with the voters,
Readers with the interest that are following all of this might just ask this one question. Isn’t it interesting that those advocating for “ unsurpassed services and excellent education” are more often than not the same ones who hide behind every corner of the tax code they can find to minimize their own contributions to these services they claim so dearly to care about. Now there’s an AGENDA.
