Dear Mayor Ray McAllister (The Mayor of Vincent, Alabama),
Wow. Can you believe it's been over a year since this whole Vincent Quarry debate started? I can't.
Can you believe it's been almost 2 years since you ran for mayor? That's hard to believe too. It's almost hard to believe its been so long since you sat underneath the carport of my grandparent's house with my mom and the amazing man who was my grandfather.
It's probably so long ago that you don't remember telling him that if you got the position of mayor, you would never support a quarry coming to the town. In fact, I do believe that's how you convinced my grandfather to vote for you.
Hmm.....some politicians will do anything to be elected, including lying to a lifelong resident of Vincent. For some reason, I just assumed you were better than that.
But who cares about the value of your word, right, Mayor McAllister? Maybe Vincent Hills Quarry will name a board room in your honor to thank you for your hard work as their puppet.
Someone Who Regrets Voting For You
P.S. Will you share this letter with Don Driggers (who sits on the Vincent Zoning Board)? I know you are deep down a good man, so I doubt you "hang" with the likes of him on a regular basis. But still....
Dear Don Driggers of the Vincent, Alabama Zoning Board,
Thank you for being so engaged during the debate over the quarry. You were always classy, engaged and alert at every single meeting. (And I sincerely hope you are smart enough to understand the sarcasm dripping in the above sentence.)
Oh, by the way, you yelled at my mother and told her that my grandfather wouldn't live to see the quarry come to Vincent because, in your words, "He'd be long gone and dead" by the time they started breaking ground. You had my mother crying at the end of that discussion, didn't you?
Turns out, Mr. Driggers, you were right. Just a few months after that discussion, my beloved grandfather passed away.
I will forever associate your name with that discussion. That and.....well....you know the other thing.
