TODAY: Save Davidson "Magnet Mobile" rides again

Like Silver, the Lone Ranger's trusty steed, the Save Davidson "Magnet Mobile" has become a very visible symbol of the activist group's efforts.  However, it appears the Town of Davidson doesn't seem to like it very much.

After the last Magnet Mobile event from August 17-20, Police Chief Dunn went out of her way to ask NCDOT on August 22nd if this type of thing was allowed on NCDOT  maintained roads - meaning selling out of a vehicle parked like the Magnet Mobile had been.  This is after the Town had allowed the mobile on two separate occasions.  Further, this week the Town Attorney, Cindy Reid, suddenly provides an interpretation of Town ordinance that effectively says the Magnet Mobile activities aren't allowed.  Again, this is after permits had previously been granted on two separate occasions.

This week when the group went back to get a permit they received what can best be described as "the runaround" from Town Hall.

Fortunately, the people at Save Davidson are nothing if not persistent.  A Main Street private property owner has allowed Save Davidson merchandise to be sold on their property on Saturday.

Head out to Main Street.  Look for the Magnet Mobile.   Then, look nearby for where you can get your latest supply of Save Davidson gear and most importantly...information.
