Alford hails movement on mall property

Press release issued this morning by Republican mayoral candidate Mary Alford:

Alford Applauds Mall Activity

This is great news for Bristol and the BDDC, who for months has been hampered in its attempts to solicit interest in our city due to the economic times”, Mary Alford, Republican candidate for Mayor said today. “I am pleased, as well, to see that one of our own is in the running.”

Two firms submitted their requests for quotation just under the deadline. “It is important to note that these are Requests for Qualification and not Requests for Proposal, which is perhaps the next step in this process”’ Alford said.

“I am sure that the BDDC will perform its due diligence carefully in the vetting of both developers. It’s an arduous process but, in the end, I trust that the members will do what is best for Downtown.”

Mary is the new blood we need.

Progress will begin.

Does she know what she is talking about?
Has she ever been to any development meeting?
Has she read the submissions?

Sounds like political rhetoric to me.

Mary has done nothing but state the obvious. Sometimes new isn't better. This is one of those times.

The BUDGET Mary, the BUDGET!

Don't you and Mocabee have anything to say on the budget?

Alford and Mocabee: what a combination!

Great comments? Huh? Am I missing something? Ms. Alford has yet to come up with a single original thought or idea, but then again, she does have that respect thing going for her. ;0)

"It is the Economy Stupid" still applies.

She had better be careful about the company she keeps.

7:01pm (aka Ward) maybe you should just stay at the bars a little longer. Alford offers more then you can or ever will.

Ward should watch the company he keeps too.

1:27 PM,

Just the type of childish, assinine comment I'd expect from someone over the age of 7 who calls himself "billy."

Again - not said...

guess the most recent gop posters haven't read about Alford's support of the new proposals - clueless for sure.

Lot of platitudes, nothing of substance.

She sure learned fast.

As a democrat I am especially appreciative of the fact that Mocabee and Schaffrick are running(ruining) the local Republican party, and pulling Barnes's strings.

Unfortunately Mocabee and Schaffrick are hurting and destroying many good people in the process.

They have to be stopped, or else the Republican party won't have anybody.

As a former Republican Town Committee member, I wholehartedly agree with your comments.

We can't change who is in the mayors seat until we clean up our own house.

Why don't some of these big mouths get off there butts and do something? Thanks to Mary and others, we have a choice. Take the time to meet Mary, you will meet a very intelligent caring and compassionate person.

So's my Grandma, but she's also wise enough to know that you need knowledge and experience to run a city.

She may be all you say she is, but I have to question her when it comes to standing up.

She seemingly is being used, is being led by a few peopls.

Would that be the case were she to be elected?

Neither may be selected, and it will a while before any action is taken.
