    Rather it be a Moody or a Kempner I guess. Plenty of candidates to choose from if that's the case.

    If it involves GAIN it can't be good. Ralph is a good guy but he is no council person he is to influenced by GAIN.

    Ms. Marx. I represent my neighborhood at GAIN and I don't even pretend to understand your response. Clearly you do not know what your talking about and GAIN did have 19 neighborhoods during Ralph's term of office. Your other gibberish aside, your posting on Facebook was inaccurate and obviously was given to you by someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. Be careful of that. It happens more often than you think.

    BTW: We never saw Ralph at but one GAIN meeting the year after he left when his tenure ran out. His business was undergoing a growth spurt and he was pretty much used up and traveling. He wasn't even around when the membership dropped.

    Just say you were given inaccurate facts and be done with it.

    Bill Broussard, who in Norm Pappous' own words was the "lightening rod" that caused the drop in membership .... Under McMorris' presidency and continued involvement, I'd say that is a grain of salt that I would take with this letter.

    Ask the member neighborhoods - 12 of them, that no longer are members of GAIN.

    GAIN membership hit an all time high while Ralph was its President. That is a fact. Membership losses occurred after Ralph left.

    Blaming him for a drop in membership is akin to blaming last year's coach for this year's record.

    Yes, i was amazed when i read that on facebook, as i was when i saw ralph misquoted in the newspaper after the ball high forum. Of course, the endorsements this time around are just as strange.
