I went to the "meet and greet" for Tina D'Aversa to get an understanding of the issues and a feel for her commitment to Milton. She was poised, very open, direct, educated on the issues, and succinct regarding her past accomplishments and future goals for Milton.

In talking to others who came, I was surprised to hear a half-dozen or more people claiming to be Crooked Creek residents,coming to hear Tina. The CC people complained of having their "Vote for Tina" signs stolen from their yards and being pressured to vote for Joe Longoria so the community could be gated.

I researched Longoria on the Internet and the only issue he seems to be pursuing is the gating of Crooked Creek. I could not find his position on providing services to all of the Milton residents like parks, protecting sunk costs in the city budget, how to provide services to the residents,doing more with less, or any other issue.

One of the September post mentioned Tammany Hall politics because Tina contacted her opponent. Talking to an opponent is not TH politics, but stealing yard signs supporting the competition could be considered so as well as a First Amendment violation.Tammany Hall politics involved violence and corruption, not communication between two candidates.

Local and federal candidates contact one another to set up debates to discuss issues but when that is done on a local level, some see it as bullying.Why? Where is the corruption here?

Milton consists of approximately 18,000 plus people versus CC's 640 to 650 homes for a total of 1280 - 1300 possible CC voters. That is less than ten percent of the city population, so if Longoria is elected, what happens to the 90% not living in CC? Do they go without representation for four years?

I haven't heard anyone accuse Tina of ripping up her opponents' signs or representing a select few of the residents and ignoring the others. She seems to be taking the high road, so unless someone can prove corruption on her part, I will encourage everyone I talk with to vote for her. Vote on the issues, not personalities.

Who was the rock star at the D'Aversa meet and greet? As soon as he started to speak, women began fanning themselves.

I attended the party last evening for Tina D'Aversa. I have read these articles that are obviously politically motivated and I have read her response in an email sent last Friday. She is a strong person and has my vote! I understand that she has been the target of politics and her friends, family and more importantly her community must rally behind her. We need to vote, vote, vote for this woman. I have never seen someone so commited to others that she would endure this attack and barely defend herself. Taking the high ground is how I see it. She seems to be positive and focused on her community in the midst of all the comments and rumors. The writer in the newspaper Beacon is a poor writer and unprofessional. He/She has a grudge against Tina or he has been paid off to write these terrible lies about her. The Beacon paper which I have never read or received before this month seems to cover politics in a few cities and to take sides and endorse candidates by writing negative, untruths about candidates. I saw the paper after reading the article on this web site or I would have never seen it at all. This writer who did not even have the guts to sign his name should be boycotted. This is a paper that should be boycotted.

During the party last evening at the Mayor's home, Tina addressed the issues for Milton after quickly stating that she is here for the community and never intended anything "inappropriate" with her actions. She offered to have anyone call her if they want more about the allegations against her made by the newspaper.

Her colleagues on the council addressed her strength of character and they were right! She is something else. Strong, dedicated, hardworking, sincere and honest. I am shocked that she is in politics. Most politicians are just the opposite. There were several people at the party wearing "Milton Trusts Tina" shirts. I asked about a shirt and one person said that Tina had these made before the allegations started about her contacting the other candidate for council. I see this as something important. Tina and her supporters see her as honest and trustworthy above all else. This is a trait we need in our government.

She has been attacked by emails and the newspaper. I am convinced that these attacks are politics and that she is the best person to vote for in Milton. I will support Tina and ask all of my friends and neighbors to vote for this strong woman.

I heard that John Fredericks had a thing for Tina. Now she's his target. I guess she turned him down. Poor, sad man!

To poster number 1. Please provide the links to the internet site where Joe Longoria is puruing gating. I cannot find them.

Anonymous said...

Let's break this down.

As expected, the soccer moms are rallying to the aid of an attractive fellow gal.
Two posts mention the bribe fiasco. Noone has criticized Tina for having contact, just for an overt attempt to pay off an opponent in a potential contest.
Tina on the issues? Anyone, after 3 months, much less 3 years could sound "poised, educted on the issues" etc. Most citizens are in the dark on city operations, so it is easy to sound like an expert...Julie has made a good living on that sort of thing for years, despite distorting or fabricating techno-speak.
I just searched Longoria and couldnt find anything, much less gating. I suppose he has a website, but I will reserve judgement until I have a chance to see a flyer or the forum. It is doubtful he would run on such a single issue, since it would be a turnoff to at least 75% of voters.

So, for the gals wowed by Tina, sounds like the facts won't get in your way to vote for her. Good for you, thats how the system works. However, it is TH-style tactics to bribe an opponent or have anonymous posters accuse jilted suitors, sign-stealers and political enemies(?) of ganging up on a poor, honest, "servant". Tina is anything but.

Tina has sold her soul to the devil for a city council position. This is no longer about the best person for the job. She has made it about good vs. evil.

I pray that Joe Longoria wins for the good of Milton. I pray that Tina can be someday forgiven for all the lies she tells.

If you look at the two longest anonomous contributions on this blog, 9:38pm and 2:42 am, it is clear that they were written by Tina herself. Compare their turgid styles with her e-mails.

The issue isn't about contact between candidates, it is about unethical, immoral and probably illegal attempts to suborn (to bribe or induce someone unlawfully or secretly to perform some misdeed). Her e-mail to Longoria speaks for itself: "my intention is for you to join a board committee and withdraw your application to seek my council position service from District 5." Her e-mails are public record since they were sent from a City of Milton computer account.

Tina, by the way, is the only person publicly speaking about the matter. She keeps bringing it up. Every time she denies any wrongdoing, she digs the hole deeper. Like Watergate, the coverup is worse than the misdeed.

Sold her soul?
Don't tell me she has been naughty with Joe Lockwood!!
She did go all out to get herself plugged in as pro-tem. I hear the staff says she was "obsessed" with getting that.
Hope she didn't get nasty contusions on her knees. Course, she is so churchy, that may be from her prayerful lifestyle.

If you have ever been to a City Council Meeting or Work Session then you would know that the talent level and skill set to govern is just not there. Just like Julie, Tina can talk a good game,but she just doesn't understand the issues therefore can't make a decision and is incapable of governing.

Absolve. Doesn't cover mortal sins, though.

She might have a better understanding of things if she got her head out of her...blackberry.

Wow, the venom spewed at Tina D'Aversa! One blogger said he/she prays Tina will be forgiven for the lies she tells. What are the lies? I’d like to find out the truth myself.

Saying that “Tina lies” is subjective and not a factual statement. If it comes down to “he said/she said,” then other factors have to be taken into consideration, like posted comments as to each candidate’s pledge to the community.

There are many professional women in politics who are not soccer moms. The comment about "knees" indicates that women must use other means to get what they want rather than intelligence and hard work. Sound like a very low opinion regarding women in general.

I heard Tina speak at the "meet and greet" and was highly impressed. As a college teacher with a Master's Degree in Public Administration and a Bachelor's in Political Science/Prelaw, she epitomizes what the average voter is looking for, honesty, intelligence, commitment, and a strong work ethic. I can see why some people are intimidated by her campaign.

As for the references to her committing Tammany Hall politics, have you studied TH in depth? If so, you would know that is not the case here.

I tried to find a site where Joe Longoria has posted his objectives and goals for Milton and there is none, just comments on blogs that he was contacted by Tina and offered a volunteer post.

Tina has posted her phone numbers and email addresses as well as her vision for Milton. She has invited people to call her and discuss their concerns. I have not found Longoria’s phone number, email address, his vision for Milton, or an invitation to discuss issues, only blogger comments about him wanting to represent Crooked Creek and having Crooked Creek gated.

Tina said she worked hours on the gate issue and if Longoria is elected (doubtful), he will find that getting his community gated is not as easy as he seems to think. Tina has posted numerous letters stating her objectives and goals for Milton as well as her past accomplishments, and she discusses how she proposes to get her goals accomplished.

Some Crooked Creek homeowners at the meet and greet complained of having signs supporting Tina’s candidacy pulled out of their yard and thrown away. I doubt Longoria will get their vote. The election may show that he did not carry his Crooked Creek community.

So spew your venom, it won’t change the truth. Tina is the best candidate for this post. Vote in the online poll to show your support.

I will post my name to show I stand by my comments and I invite you to do the same. It is easy. Just click the Name/Url tab and type your name.

Debbie Evans said...

Debbie I stand by you and can back up all your comments, however, you must not have looked too hard for Joe Longoria's phone number and e-mail address.

They were posted right here on this blog September 29th.

Access Milton always post ads / e-mails from all candidates.

All I had to do was looked on the first page of older blogs and there it was, 2 phone numbers and an e-mail address.

Nice trick by the way with the Name / URL, it sure is a good way to see who is writing things.

Hey look, my name is Debbie Evans too!

Deb-

No one said Tina was a soccer mom, but that she is manipulating sentiment now for pity votes from so-called soccer moms, a specific subset political scientists study in elections.
It is fair to ask what lies are being referred to, so I echo that question. It is, however, fair to suggest that she acts foolishly at meetings and several bloggers have made that observation.
The most important issue is integrity. Just saying someone is "honest", in the face of evidence to the contrary, means little.
Finally, the only listing with Deb Evans in Milton comes up near Birmingham, an inherent problem for truth, accuracy and independance. It suggests a JZB fanatic, sadly, that may support anyone no matter what the facts may be. Just the facts, in our Milton.

Hey dumbsh1+!

Most people are listed in the phone book / white pages under only the husband's name or initials...your research isn't worth squat!

Of course the Board at Crooked Creek and many of CC's residents want Joe Longoria on the council. He has to be kept on a short leash! He helped secure the 4,000,000 debt for their beautiful new amenities!

Anonymous said...

I encourage anyone in Crooked Creek who had a yard sign stolen from their yard to come forward and be recognized. If that is indeed, true, than you should let the truth be known.

Otherwise it is just "I heard that" commentary.

Anonymous said...

It is a common tactic to complain about sign theft in advance of the election, in Milton.
Tina's crew is probably preparing us for an excuse if "angry, frustrated supporters go overboard" just before the election, building an excuse for safe "retribution".
That is what it sounds like to me.

I'm not a big Tina supporter. I'm truthfully undecided in her race. But, I think that junk about the Mayor and Tina is way out of line. These are our community members with families. Let's keep it civil folks.

I think the mayor and Tina were skinny dipping while Julie and Laura preached to young kids about the evils of sewer, and Bill was riding around with a damn dog.

Who is this Laura chic? Is he red headed, a little crazy, and married to a Doctor?

Nobody really thinks the Mayor and Tina have a thing going do they? If they did it would be a shame for Joe's very sweet and beautiful wife Dawn. I think she is GREAT!!! Why don't she run for the seat??? At least she's honest and much better to look at than Tina or Joe L.....

I dont know, the way these bloggers are commenting about Joe being a crook, traitor, backstabber, getting rich off of the city, etc. he probably does fool around on his wife and I bet he beats his children also.

Anonymous said...

Some of these comments are despicable and merely reflect on the lack of class and maturity of the blogger.

I certainly hope those responsible do not have children. The thought that there may be a generation of obnoxious juniors being instilled with the same values as their parents, is just too nauseating to contemplate.

One of these bloggers has 2 children and is a very frustrated, jealous man.
