In addition to his insights, Mr. Sharp is visible in the sixth district, especially east of 71 highway. His rapport with those in the east side of the 6th is obvious, and his fight to preserve the old council boundaries no doubt grew out of this personal comfort zone. Still, rare is the event, opening, or dedication that does not have Mr. Sharp in attendance. I have also seen him in such places as the neighborhood McDonald's. I think that is pretty cool.
Yet...yet. When John Sharp was involved with MAST, money became a problem, and most pointed at John Sharp as the problem. When John Sharp left the Hickman Mills C-1 school board, many were glad to see him go. Many disliked his defense of the old 6th district boundaries, his advocacy for some of the plans to redevelop the Bannister Mall site, and the way he brought about the water spray park on Longview Road. Sometimes when you observe Mr. Sharp it appears that he was more interested in promoting John Sharp and his agenda. Sometimes, Mr. Sharp seems very sharp indeed, sometimes he appears quite dull, and other times, he seems most concerned with John Sharp.
