“Concord Mayor Tim Grayson will host his” so I suspect he’ll be there.

I am going to see if they’ll let me in. This should be interesting.

When I read the article headline I thought for a second that the good Mayor of Claycord was hosting a gathering….which would be fascinating.

“In addition to the Mayor, the City Manager, Assistant City Manager, City Attorney, Chief of Police and other key City staff members will be in attendance”

ahhh I see the city councils mayorEGOROUND is only interested In making life great for the business owners. Well first off get the bums away from my doors as well as the ATM machines. BofA on willowpass as well as Wellsfargo ATMS are constantly being accosted by bums who do not take kindly to ” no “. The banks do the best they can I have seen several times the manager running out the door to confront ….yet is that their job really…..maybe instead of securing a warm seat and life time benefits this mayor should address the problems that really exist ……bums ..section 8 taking over downtown ……police force so thin criminals know where to hit and what times ……..not to mention the streets are horrible cracked and pot holes as well as way to many traffic accidents at the same intersections……simple things you would think with the mayor having at his disposal the entire city ……..oh wait the mayor-ego-round is a puppet job …the council demands the power and wields it like a 4 year old who just figured out how to push your buttons. Wield away city council snobs … your jobs are secure as none of the cities tax payers are. But that is of none of your concern. The empty business fronts are outnumbering even the number of bums and yet lets take a break for coffee. Payed for by whom ????

#2, Cowellian was asking about the Mayor of Claycord, not Tim Grayson. Of course Tim Grayson will be there.

Anonmtz, if you’re curious who the Mayor of Claycord is, look for the guy with dark hair sitting next to Cowellian. Cowellian will be on his ipad, searching Ancestry.com.

I hope this event is successful……

Define local businesses as those in downtown area only. Is that where most of the tax base is ? maybe try this at different areas in City.

“Reservations” = aka. “for a small fee (?)”

Cowellian does not have an iPad. Touch screens hate me. I do more reading than writing on my Android.

Nothing good to come from that group Unless your part of that group . We the people will get the great leaders news of things to come as we need to know . They will share their agenda for the city and we should be quiet .
