First, I would like to thank everyone for their support and kinds words during and after the election. I enjoyed talking with everyone but most of all I loved making new friends. This election was interesting and fun. During the Plantation Estates forum I was set up for attack only to learn it was planned once again for the Polo Club forum. Until that moment I really did not realize how childish people can be. I was not running for mayor but you would have thought so. As one resident put it “it was boring but then it got spicy!”. One hot issue was the vote for two or four year terms. This applied the Mecklenburg Commissioners. I found this interesting because during the 2014 Planning Conference four year terms were discussed and supported by the mayor and commissioners. As I stated I support two year limits and also believe there needs to be a limit as to how many years you can serve. Unfortunately people are elected and do not know when to leave, they have become a legend in their own mind. I also announced that my son will be getting married this year. So, we are busy planning and preparing for a wedding and for all the emails I continue to receive requesting to please continue MATTHEWS WATCH do not worry I will do my best to post a monthly article. Because I continue to receive questions I have kept my email firstname.lastname@example.org open and I can also be reached through the MATTHEWS WATCH email.
Now to set the record straight, during the election it was brought to my attention that a certain group of Matthews residents (who I am well aware of) were informing residents that I lied and I changed documents pertaining to Town of Matthews v. Wright. Isn’t it funny how desperate people become when they are exposed for who and what they really are. In my view these are the actions of a coward. Instead of accepting the responsibility for participating in corrupt and unethical behavior they point their fingers and place the blame on someone else. I believe the citizens of Matthews are smart enough to know that I cannot change court documents, emails and certified information provided by the town and then post on MATTHEWS WATCH. Hmmmm, correct me if I am wrong but, would this not be illegal? I have always been taught that if you are going to accuse someone you better be able to back it up or you may find yourself in a sticky situation. So, to my accusers please explain how am I able to change court documents, the emails sent, town information and court rulings, I would really love to know.
TOWN OF MATTHEWS v. WRIGHT COURT DOCUMENTATION, EMAILS AND TOWN DOCUMENTS
What is also important to remember is that the homes along Home Place are part of the Davinmor Development (this does not include the Wrights) and Davinmor is an unrecorded and unapproved plat and Matthews is aware of this. Instead of holding the grantors accountable for breaking subdivision laws of North Carolina, Mecklenburg County and Matthews your tax dollars were used to help the well-connected.

Judge Beal – 11-30-2012 Judgment *note on page six, injunction place upon the town and because Matthews likes to bring up the judgement by Judge Beal granting the Wrights a $1.00, I would like to clarify. Because the Wrights were not seeking any attorney’s fees or damages (they just wanted it over) and in order to keep the town from appealing (because there is a history) the judge awarded the Wrights a judgment of $1.00 to be paid by the town. This worked there was no appeal but then the town decided to condemn their property. If you hear “the Wrights only received a dollar and the town did nothing wrong” just remember on August 4, 2015 Judge Hunter ruled in favor of the Wrights granting them $74,570.00. I think this is a little more than “just” a dollar and paid for by the citizens of Matthews.
