As usual, the "Village People" must follow the "Stepford Wives" rules, including our local newspaper which refuses to print anything opposing the recent escapades of Representative Tom Taylor. They are circling the wagons to make sure he loses no ground for his very bad behavior.
Here is my letter to the Editor of The Crier newspaper - a local publication - in Dunwoody, which of course was not printed. Another good example of how the "Village People" want their way with no concern for the consequences!!
"I must take exception to - The president of Dunwoody Homeowners Association - Robert Wittenstein’s remark in last week’s Dunwoody Crier about “pitchforks” when referring to the reaction of citizens over the malfeasance of State Representative Tom Taylor.
His choice of words makes it sound as though the citizens are out in the streets hunting down Rep. Tom Taylor over nothing more than “raging rumors of dastardly deeds” when in truth there is video of his encounter with the police, his being read his rights, handcuffed and arrested all the while involving 4 exchange students in his Saturday afternoon escapades!
The only thing that is totally bizarre about this entire situation is that Rep. Taylor is continuing his run
for his State Seat…not that the citizens are upset!
While we all wish him well with treatment, the honorable thing for him to do at this time is to discontinue his bid for office, complete his treatment with plans to resume his legislative career with a record of 2 years clean and sober. A mere apology and “being evaluated” is not sufficient!
This is not a matter of whether or not Tom Taylor is your friend, your neighbor or even your kin. Nor is it a witch hunt! It is a matter of deciding if you want to place legislative decisions in the hands of someone who has so recently shown such flawed judgment.
With the continued clamor to have DeKalb County corruption brought under control, how can we expect a better community if we put him - Rep. Tom Taylor - back in the State House to write laws?
