Anthony Jordan is challenging Calvin Ball for his District 2 council seat in next year’s countywide elections. He was one of the first Republican candidates in the county to toss his hat into the ring.
Recently, in answering a question ostensibly about safety concerns on his website from someone named “Doug” Anthony wrote that safety is his number priority and then added, “When I say this, I am not only referring to the proper funding and staffing of our fire and police departments but also the proper evaluation of development projects in terms of long term consequences.”
What exactly does he mean by “proper evaluation” and “long term consequences?”
One of the hot button issues in District 2 is the proposed Walgreens at the corner of Route 175 and Thunder Hill Road. Opponents of this development have argued that a pharmacy in this location is unsafe. Is this an example of using slightly veiled code words in an attempt to pander to the anti development crowd?
