Seagrove Resident Maggie Burns Denounces Positive Piece on County Engineer

Navigating the Complexities of Online Discourse: Maggie Burns' Reaction to Positive Piece on County Engineer

In the ever-evolving landscape of social media interactions, the recent response from Seagrove Resident Maggie Burns to our positive article on the county engineer prompts a moment of reflection.

While our intention was solely to highlight the commendable efforts of the county engineer, we recognize that our approach may have inadvertently caused discomfort or confusion for some readers.

The incident in question stems from a positive article we published highlighting the commendable efforts of Chance Powell, Deputy County Engineer at the Walton County Public Works Department.

(Article is here:

Our article focused on Powell's leadership in implementing safety measures, particularly the installation of a flashing pedestrian crosswalk light at the intersection of 30A and Somerset Bridge Rd in Seagrove.

However, following the publication, Seagrove resident Maggie Burns expressed her disapproval on Nextdoor, disavowing any connection to the article and our publication.

She denounced our piece and suggested that we had used her post to further our own agenda.

While our intent was solely to spotlight positive developments within the community and recognize the efforts of public servants like Chance Powell, it's evident that our approach may have inadvertently caused confusion or discomfort for some readers, including Maggie Burns.
