"This is a business, and we better treat it like a business,” Smith said. “We better treat it like we’ve been treating it all these years if we’re going to continue to be successful" If you were treating it as a business, it would have been sold years ago. The only reason it has survived is that Cobb taxpayers were forced to cover the bills you couldn't pay. Get rid of it. Governments shouldn't own hotels and conference centers.

Excellent comment Dr. Hilliard and my thoughts exactly. I might also add that having a sitting County Commissioner publicly accuse our CCPD of being racist simply because she was personally offended they followed her home at 1:30 in the morning during a stakeout in a high crime area of our county is the most appalling, despicable, thing I have ever heard come out of a Commissioners mouth in my entire life. She should absolutely step down. The only racist in this story is Commissioner Cupid.

No racism does not exist in Cobb and that was proven by the Confederate flag shown broadly on the front page of this paper a few weeks back.

The only racist here is Commissioner Cupid. As a Commissioner it was her duty to look into why she was followed with a little more detail before she goes on the attack by calling our fine CCPD racists. Somebody needs to remind Ms. Cupid this isn't Baltimore, or Ferguson and we don't need her type of instigating racial rhetoric brought here to Cobb. Her only intent IMO was to create animosity and friction here in Cobb between whites, and blacks based solely on their geographical locations within the county. As far as I'm concerned she has now tainted her own image as to her integrity and can never be trusted as a Commissioner any longer. Now that we know she is a racist and has a problem with our CCPD as well as seems to have an issue with whites in other parts of the county how can we be sure she will legislate from a BOC chair without that bias effecting her judgment? Cupid needs to resign her position as Commissioner immediately. I couldn't be anymore proud of the CCPD and all they do to protect and serve with the highest of integrity "ALL" of Cobb with a fair and impartial hand.
