And reportedly told the investigating officer he’d just dropped off his daughter at a church function. Wow. Just wow.

A Chairman of the Board is supposed to be a leader in the community not a disgrace and embarrassment. No he should not be reelected he should be fired for not living up to the standards of his office.

You must hope he will cave into developer interests. This may well prove a set up. Sorry, PJ.

I believe its fair to say he can kiss good-bye to his reelection hopes. Did anyone see the expression on his face when they took his mug-shot when he was booked into jail?? I would love to know what his Blood Alcohol Level was?? Did anyone see it posted anywhere? He’s actually got a great big SMILE on his face like its FUNNY! What an EMBARRASSMENT he is to our great community here.

Sometimes we learn from our mistakes. Makes us better. Seasoning.

I think Mr. Bell should step down and get the help he needs. When he said his wife said he should never take a breathalyzer test it seems this is not the first time he’s done this. He got caught this time. Having a child in the car is inexcusable.

It’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove. Typical to convict without trial in the
public court.
