Haddix booted for original thinking

How sad that Peachtree City Mayor Don Haddix was summarily fired from the Atlanta Regional Commission roundtable for suggesting that Fayette County should consider joining the Three Rivers Regional Commission instead.

If not applauded for his courageous, “out-of-the-box” thinking, at least he should have been heard, especially since it affects our pocketbooks. Instead, he was politically “lynched.”

I don’t know if his idea is a good one or not, but such creative thinking is rare, and deserving of thoughtful debate in the newspapers and on the street.
