We were all amazed back in 2014 when Don Burnette decided to surprise Ted Noftall with his false indictment of Ted’s behavior as Chairman of the Audit and Budget Advisory Board. Clearly a knife in the back, Don was quickly reinforced by Dennis Kennedy and “Little Miss Ethics” herself, Sonya Laney. Judging by the number of Chamber of Commerce members in attendance at the meeting, Don’s attack had the full support of the Green Machine. So when Burnette decided to run for mayor this year it was assumed that years of brown-nosing Mayor Green would gain him Green’s support as payback. The mayor’s son Lance Green even initially endorsed Burnette for mayor.
What a real knife in the back it must have been when Lance Green later decided to run for mayor himself. Makes what Don did to Ted Noftall seem like a pin prick by comparison.
Sonya Laney and other Chamber of Commerce supporters also seem to be deserting the sinking ship HMS Burnette. So much for loyalty from the Green regime.
And what is the story here with Sonya Laney and Mike Arminio listing two addresses? It’s not like everyone doesn’t know these two love-birds are joined at the hip. Is it perhaps so no one questions the ethics of having both of them sitting on the Planning Commission? What would happen if Lance Green’s wife wanted to be on the Commission?
