I just looked at the NLC web site. What a bunch of catch 22 double talk. I don't see that they actually DO anything. What a perfect fit for Mark Mathews. He's never had a real job in his life. And no, I don't count playing golf every day for Metro Ambulance as a real job.

He announced the other day that he's on the committee to design the new control tower at McCollum Field. Someone PLEASE explain to me how this man is in ANY way qualified (based on his education or work experience, what little of either there is) to help design an air traffic control tower.

Kennesaw City Hall is a mess. He did such a bad job on the ARC they kicked him off the transportation committee.

Look at all the lawsuits against the city.

The back room deals, the wasting of tax payer money.

We have to suffer with him for almost another 3 years. Let's hope the people of Kennesaw have finally seen the light and vote him out in the next election.

Just what we need... another liberal NGO gets their clawhooks into a chunk of Cobb County. I wonder of Mathews will campaign on the National League of Cities platform. I hope so. The people of Kennesaw would oust him quickly.
