Happy Memorial Day


To all the veterans among us, I wish you a Happy Memorial Day!  I especially wish a Happy Memorial Day to those who served in times of combat (including, of course, you Dad)!  If you have never heard Trace Adkins tribute to our veterans, click on the Arlington link - it's well worth the time.

James Sibold Considers Run for Mayor

The following was issued by Dunwoody resident Jamie Sibold, who previously ran for state representative and state senate, falling both times to Fran Miller.

Former Dekalb County Republican Party Chairman James Sibold has formed an exploratory committee to seek the office of Mayor for the City of Dunwoody.

Sibold is a nineteen year resident of Brooke Farm subdivision and has practiced law in the city for the past twenty-five years. In 1999 he brought the action, along with the Southeastern Legal Foundation that forced an end to Dekalb County school systems illegal M to M busing program.
Sibold also played a key role in the recovery from the 1998 Dunwoody tornado, hosting a series of forums for the storms victims and helping them resolve disputes with their insurance companies and county officials. Most recently Sibold has served as the Chairman of the Dekalb Republican Party and worked closely in helping Republicans win elected office. In 2008 he traveled with Senator John McCain’s campaign for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. “In a city with 10,000 Republicans and 5,000 Democrats, I am very proud of my conservative beliefs and philosophy on the role of government. I look forward to discussing with the voters my vision for the future of the City of Dunwoody.”

Given Sibold's history in a prior race, his entry to the Mayor's race will make it lively, if nothing else.

Perhaps having a strong anti-tax candidate like Sibold in the race will put an end to the insane desire of the city council to raise property taxes in the middle of a recession.
