    The suspense has been killing me.

    Thanks J Max for getting Brookhaven started off right. Let the naysayer say what they will, and they will, but Brookhaven is a great place to live and it has only been made better because of your hard work making this City and leading this City.

    Yes there have been some mistakes, yes there have been some embarrassing times and poor decisions made that have been costly. But in the end, nothing worth having isn’t worth hard work.

    Always remember that a try always beats a fail – 100% of the time.

    Thanks again and best of luck.

    Looking at all the candidates in thus race it is obvious J. Max is a cut above. Thank you again for bringing us Brookhaven J. Max and good luck!

    Such a beautiful family. The truth is whether you are a J Max supporter or not he has a full life of being exposed to the Legislature, he has actually held a public office and he is the most experienced.

    I think he will be a great representative because like it or not he is a local and has been his entire life. What other candidate knows the area they are running to represent as much as Davis?

    So I think it’s better to go with the devil you know rather than the devil you don’t.

    And it is a two year term so he can be booted out if he screws this chance up.

    If we wins of course.

    I suggest you meet Catherine. Electing someone because they are the ” devil you know” sounds like a risky way to do things.

    There he goes again, patting himself on the back, being one of his few fans. Sad.

    Bless your heart Carrie/JMax!

    The fact that you post here patting yourself on the back Mr. Davis speaks volumes to me about the kind of man you are. You’re not fooling anyone except yourself.

    So the strategy for the Davis camp is,

    “Yes there have been some mistakes, yes there have been some embarrassing times and poor decisions made that have been costly.”

    and, “So I think it’s better to go with the devil you know rather than the devil you don’t.”

    Ooooof, I think I’ll go with the most experienced legislator in the bunch, Catherine Bernard. She’s down at the capital all the time fighting on our behalf. She has actually been a delegate in the Republican Party. The only law J Max wanted to see on the books was Redevelopment Powers for our City.

    Since there is a concern about not knowing Catherine and the yearn to see a different Devil from J Max, they should debate. Any reason given not to debate is a cop out on our entire constituency.

    When this sitting City Council asks the legislature to put RPL back on the ballot summer of 2016 who do you want them to ask? J Max Davis, Jr. who lobbied for it in secret, without mentioning it during the run up to cityhood, obligating tax payer debt and would have distorted real estate markets. Or Catherine Bernard who lead us to its defeat 60/40.

    Thomas, I think many underestimate how much support there is for Mayor Davis. Look how Mike Jacobs was embraced when he switched from democrat to republican. Not long after her election to the county commission it was apparent that Elaine Boyer was not the best person to represent her district and was just a place holder. Yet for years she was reelected to office. Look at the popularity and support Rebecca Chase Williams has in her district. These very same people will insure that Mayor Davis will be elected to represent you in the Georgia House 80.

    Though I don’t agree with all of his positions I do like J. Max and think he is better than many at recognizing different opinions. I will certainly consider voting for him.

    Not related to any of the candidates but just to vent, I think the Georgia State Legislature is dysfunctional, where extremist or hateful legislation is often passed or debated to excite a small group of single issue voters and where budget and tax decisions are often done to benefit the few to the detriment of the rest of us. This I believe is a exacerbated by the “part time” status of the legislature where bills are rushed through quickly during the 3 month session and where public scrutiny is all the more difficult.

    Eric,

    You “think the Georgia State Legislature is dysfunctional, where extremist or hateful legislation is often passed or debated to excite a small group of single issue voters and where budget and tax decisions are often done to benefit the few to the detriment of the rest of us. This I believe is a exacerbated by the “part time” status of the legislature where bills are rushed through quickly during the 3 month session and where public scrutiny is all the more difficult.”

    And J Max can fix it? Whew, didn’t see that one coming.

    Chad I said not related to any of the candidates. I doubt Taylor Bennett, Catherine Bernard or J. Max Davis can fix it.

    It will be an interesting race because its a non partisan election so if the few people who show up are aware of who they are voting for show up one would think Taylor Bennett as the only Democrat would have a lock on lets say 30% of the vote. Which leaves him as one of the likely runoff candidates.

    Say what you want about J. Max but to most, including me, he’s a likable person who now has experience, plus his Dad is a legacy for us older voters. So the question is can Catherine Bernard get 31% and squeak into the runoff against J. Max. Because J. Max is clearly the favorite. The Gov wouldn’t have opened up this seat if the powers that be thought otherwise.

    It will be interesting to see.

    I just got spammed by J Max. What a jerk.

    I got Jmaxspamed too. Now that he has alienated the county and encouraged high residential real estate prices, he wants to teach you how to appeal your outrageously high Brookhaven property tax bill. J Max = Create a problem and then charge to solve it.

    ER,

    You also picked RPL to pass. I picked it to get rejected by 70/30. It was rejected 60/40.

    Every Democrat I know (plenty) told me it’s the first time they’ve ever voted for a Republican. Democrats instintively know Taylor is good people that has little-to-no chance this go round. Voting for him means a vote for J Max. In our part of town we agree on more than we disagree on.

    My odds tell me it’s Catherine Bernard 40%, Taylor 20%, J Max 27%, Loren gets 13% If J Max debates her, Catherine wins without a run off. She is that good…and he is not. I’d love to see him answer valid questions about state level legislation.If he doesn’t show up, we’ll answer for him.

    Have any of the local GOP heavy’s endorsed J Max yet? Nope. I’m sure it’s coming, but they haven’t yet.

    Chad, I like those odds. If you are right, I am going to get a Mangroomer, and shave my head and back. I’ll be the one at Catharine’s return party with no shirt and J Max’s loosing per cent age in black hair and a bronze skin background on my back.

    Saul,

    LOL. I’ve already done step one. Just waiting on the numbers for step 2. The final version might need a billboard variance. 🙂
