Spending

A fellow councilmember and I wanted to privatize the tennis center. We even had a buyer,

But a three vote on council stopped us. So we proposed outsourcing, which was passed and cut $200,000 a year from the budget. But it still remained in the red and has ever since.

We proposed the same for the Kedron Center. But that got shot down all the way around and remains a money drain.

As for the sports fields the vast majority of users do not pay Peachtree City taxes.

Remember the drought and recession 12 years ago. Remember Fleisch accusing us of mismanagement. Remember her launching into staging the city and reinventing it via a tax and spend Council. Remember expensive study after study that did nothing or made things worse. Remember I warned that recession would come again.

Where are her public pontifications now after all those solutions she claimed for the future, including the health department, on which I served, that has needed major renovation for years.

The councilmembers under her have declared her greatness for years. Now they can share in the failure.

This is a wake-up call for Peachtree City. We are not a resort town with a bottomless wallet of money. Time for a much more conservative government.
