Davis Running For Mayor Of Brookhaven

The election will be won in Brookhaven's living rooms and front doors, he tells Patch.

After leading the organization that spearheaded Brookhaven's incorporation, J. Max Davis is running to become the city's first mayor.

"I truly hadn't seriously considered running until after the cityhood vote, and after talking it over with my wife," Davis told Patch. "My family and I took a short vacation after the vote, and the question came up again. After discussing it and making sure we were all on board 110 percent, I decided to run."

begins next week. The election itself will be held on Nov. 6.

Davis, , had been frequently mentioned as a possible mayoral candidate, i.

"I've had many people ask whether I was going to run for mayor, but it was improper to address the issue during the cityhood campaign," Davis said. "The cityhood vote wasn't a foregone conclusion; neither was the notion of me running for mayor. Simply because I was out in front, didn't mean I was going to run for office.

"I can't do anything about the folks who are suspcious about everything," he said. "The fact that we were able to win by a margin of 55 percent to 45 percent shows we were focusing on cityhood, not on campaigning for political office."

, Davis expects "a spirited campaign.

"I'm not going to run a dirty campaign," he said. "I will work hard, and it's going to be tough. The battle will be in the living rooms and in the front doors of people in the city. But our citizens will reject any kind of dirty campaign.

"We are divided in a way, but on the other hand, we are somewhat united because we've had numerous people who were opposed to cityhood come on board, now that we actually have this municipality," he said. "That also encouraged me to run."

"Rants"? "1992 November 2 thru 4 - Having been invited by Jimmy Carter to be shown U.S. Presidential elections in progress in Georgia, the spokesperson for the Mexican political officials, academics, political analysts, and grass-roots personnel, who had been assembled by the MxGov, , concluded: "U.S. elections would be so easy to manipulate!" --- Dr. Miguel Basañez (Source: The Carter Center’s “The International Observation of the U.S. Elections” - 1210.pdf, Page 30) And, so it is, for even our own "referendum"; just for starters: http://bit.ly/nkqBuS http://bit.ly/odEZbI http://bit.ly/nWDzCU I personally know the MxGov officials just above from both living in Mexico (where they have MxGov offices also) for some twenty years and their activites right here even prior to Carter's presidency. I know what they do to Americans. I know the on-going agenda of the MxGov plus the protection---and kind of protection---they get from collabortors in own State Government; and know them too. But what should Americans know about anywhere or anybody else? Let us trust them to tell who they supposedly are and what they are supposedly doing. A fool is one thing, but for a fool to makes fools of others is quite another. So, fool, why are you so afraid of learning just who those American collaborators are in even our own state government? And why? Unless, being a collaborator, you already know?

Within the past week I've received 5 robo-calls from a 978 (Massachusetts area code) number. The most recent one, at 6:00 this evening, contained a message from T Max Davis, asking for my vote. Is this the same T Max Davis who wanted more localized government, localized control of our tax dollars, the Brookhaven/Ashford Park area to be more attractive as a live/work/play part of the metro area? So ... tell me please why, instead of using a local company to make these robo-calls (there are companies that do, you know!) or volunteers, are you sending your money out of state?

Ms. rosie, please be more respectful . . . The man needs a job. Can you give him a break? By the way, please contribute heavily to your new mayor, his law practice is not doing all that well . . . I have a feeling if he gets elected, he is going to look like a stuck pig in the third year! Please pass the yellow mustard!
