The man has his vehicles registered in Alaska and doesn’t take the time or effort to have them transferred to Cobb County, where he lives and does business. He compounds that mistake by showing up for a debate and backing his pickup truck against a wall so that nobody will see the Alaska tag and then plays hide-and-seek with an MDJ photog-rapher and mushes out of the garage like one of his Iditarod Huskies.
Borden also operated a business, Real Estate Central Inc., out of his home in Kennesaw without a business license for about 15 years.
And this guy wanted to be on the Cobb County School Board? We don’t have enough clowns in the circus al-ready?
What part of his problems were caused by the MDJ? Should they not ask questions as to why someone who lives in Georgia and does business in Georgia would be driving around with Alaska car tags on their vehicles? That is not newsworthy?
And to operate a business without a business license? That’s not of public interest?
Most disappointing were the comments of Dr. John Abraham, who has decided life is too short to serve more than one term on the CCSB. I have a great respect for the man but found his comments truculent. "I was disappointed at the way he was treated by the paper. I think it wasn’t a fair assumption, I mean if you want to be an attack dog, you should be an attack dog equally, to everybody,” he said. He sounds like a guy who put his money on the wrong dog sled.
The MDJ an “attack dog?” What did the paper do wrong? They reported the facts. Borden was his own worst en-emy.
The man ran a lousy campaign and got his butt beat. Don’t blame that on the paper. Blame that on the voters.
