It’s fighting Mayor Tommy Schafer to you….

The number one complaint I hear from politicians is how unfair, ugly and viscous social media can be towards those in public service. Fair enough because there is a kernel of truth in that notion but it is also true that a politico acting like an 8 year old can do much more reputation damage to themselves and their community. That is certainly true of Diamondhead and its Mayor fighting Tommy Schafer after last week.

My suggestion to those that were horrified to see the town in the national news would do well to elect folks with a temperament for the the trade.

A vote that will determine the continued existence of the Diamondhead POA is on the horizon. With the sheer number of Louisiana expats living there who hail from a far different political milieu, bareknuckle jackassery potential is off the charts.
