Looking for some clarification. With everything going on currently between the City and the County Council, I am beginning to wonder where John Cannon's true support lies. Does he have the best interests of the County residents in mind or is he simply trying to line his pockets by keeping Jake Day happy? It seems he is always at odds with Executive Culver instead of trying to work with him. It's obvious that he is only looking for votes to replace Culver and is constantly allowing Jake Day and the City to dictate what the county does. He was elected to establish what is best for the COUNTY not the CITY OF SALISBURY. It's common knowledge that John Cannon has several rental properties located within city limits. Does this create a bias when it comes to him being on the county council?
In addition, I am not trying to beat a dead horse, but he recently sent a letter to Executive Culver in regards to the new Fire Station 13. Does anyone else find it fishy that he would request the home and work addresses of those members to determine whether or not they will be able to respond to an emergency when it happens. Is this standard practice or a standard request from all county fire stations? Just think it is a little bit far reaching especially when the council has already been provided with a membership list for this new station. In addition to that, why does he still continue to fight this new station when its on record the failing response times for SFD? THIS WOULD MAKE A HUGE BENEFIT TO THE COUNTY RESIDENCE AND ALSO TO SFD DUE TO LIMITING THE AREA THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR but that would go against Jake's agenda so that wouldn't be a good idea.
Can anyone shed any light on why Mr. Cannon seems to support the City more that the County he was elected to represent?
